      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

How to watch live races?

Recommended Posts

If there were commercials would have been between races on NBCSHD. Coverage much better than I expected, 15 minutes in and no commericals into the 1st race. 

edit: There are commercials between races, was busy trying to get stuff done yesterday so didn't watch the betweens......

I guess having too much traffic is a good problem to have, but these days scaling can happen fast, so they should have been able to adjust.

The app has a max of 25 viewers apparently :( 

On the plus side NBC is finally saving the commercials and running them between races , at least the first one was commercial free .

Today I got the SkyGo on-board camera feed channels working as well as the main feed :)

Was nice because boat audio overrode bloody KR blather but bad because it was way behind the main feed :(

 

Its hard enough keeping VirtualEye in synch let alone trying to get two other channels to synch.

Also was mostly just the bow camera looking direct aft :mellow:

What's up with VirtualEye?!?  This damn thing never ever seems to work consistently.   Just like yesterday,  there was "NO CONNECTION" in the first race.  After refreshing a million times, it still did not work.  I can't remember a day where it worked 100%.  Anybody else?

1.5 hour difference, so it's not live.

Yeah, but that early in the morning I think people will manage to avoid hearing the results elsewhere.

I think it's pretty good. Sky is a private company whose business model is getting subscriber fees, so they've gotta keep something for the paying customers.

More like the bad press has caught up with them, so now they feel the need to show their "generosity".

But better late than never.

I still won't buy their fucking overpriced product!

Trying to watch the Youth Americas Cup live but it seems to be blocked on everything. WTF. Dont the sponsors want us to see their product.

No matter. Those boats are a bloody snooze fest. You haven't missed much. Why force the young talent to sail dinosaurs? There are a few up-to-the-minute foilers which would make a much better choice, than AC45T's. 

Even I'm starting to doubt we could ever go back to monohulls, after seeing the ACC50 going at full tit.

Can someone explain to me in the year 2017, why we can't have ONE website that anyone in any location in the world with internet access can browse to and watch the races!!!??????

 

Why does it always have to be so difficult????

Because they're all a bunch of greedy fucks and that's why they do everything possible to make it difficult. That said, we're very soon to see someone smash the cartel and disrupt the model. Anything you want, any time you want it, anywhere.

The NBC Sports app is complete and total shit.  Better rated than the AC+ app though.

 

The live feed on big NBC (free to air) is gorgeous, and bringing in Outerridge and Draper for the national feed was really good considering how crap Kenny and the other guy have been.  They're actually talking about the shit that matters rather than some irrelevant crap.

Following Rudders lead I signed up for FABIPTV for the month - true pure 1080p HD streams including BT Sport straight to my TV, or phone, tablet or PC and it appears rock solid.

Not the most obvious to get going, but actually turned out to be quite a breeze.

I've just seen a Youtube of NBC's coverage. The commentary is much better than that provided by the BT production. Now looking for a way to stream NBC.

I really hope so.

Its a perfect opportunity to get some epic full race footage.

But we'll probably just get to see a few more 2min long Youtubes instead <_<

Who would have thought the NBC coverage would be better.  What I like is that  we get to hear the experts Outerridge and Draper talk more than the host.

Anyone know if there is going to be any video of the J Class races....

From a spectacle point of view, is anyone else disappointed the J Class boats don't have white sails. Somehow, they just don't look as visually striking with all that smudge, IMO. 

You'll no doubt want to tell me they're contemporary replicas and therefore use the latest technology, Right? But why the hell build something that's a slow as a pig, dragging half the ocean around with it? Shouldn't the latest technology go along with advances in yacht architecture?

Draper and Outteridge commentary.  That should be excellent value. I'm a Kenny Read fan but his commentary on the ACTV Sky feed here in NZ is flat and uninspired.  I blame a direction team that is urging him to dumb it down.

So does anyone have ideas how I can view the NBC feed here in NZ without jumping through all kinds of hoops. Doesn't even have to be live

I'm working from home today and just remembered the Red Bull series was on.  Downloaded the Red Bull TV app on my Android box and had HD coverage up and running in under a minute with Alastair and Nathan commentating.   Red Bull showing ACEA how it should have been done.

I downloaded the Red Bull app onto my AppleTV, but all I get is what they are currently showing, ie. skateboarding.  Is there anyway to replay the Youth America's Cup?

Played around and found today's YAC icon and by selecting it, I could find yesterday's.  Not sure how I'll find them tomorrow, but hopefully it shouldn't be a problem.  Now another set of races I'll have to go on a news blackout so I don't know the results before watching.

^ Not sure if it's the same, but in Android TV you just go back to the main menu and there will be an option to watch the live action in the top left panel.  At the moment it just has RBYAC with "watch live today" and a countdown timer showing 2h 19m until it switches to live

The AC app may be blocked in Japan because it is being televised on SportsNavi Live.  But Japan is not on the exclusion list:

The America's Cup Mobile App (iOS & Android) and Online
If there is no broadcast arrangement in your country, live coverage is available to subscribers ONLINE and via the America's Cup App. (subject to territorial restrictions).

*PLEASE NOTE: For the following countries there will be no live video coverage on the AC App
United States, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Monaco, Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Netherlands, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela

Looks like you will need someone to chime in from Japan or you'll need to experiment.

Some NBC networks are airing it.  I think NY, RI, SF, SD, and some others at last check.  They could air it all - the only thing Americans like better than winning is watching a billionaire get his ass kicked.
