This may have been covered and I may have totally missed it, but I just saw this on the AC site: http://www.americasc...e-comes-to-NBC/

We'll be having a 90-minute broadcast of the final day in Newport (6 days away) across the US on NBC, and all over the world on sports channels (at least that's how I read it). Unfortunately it does mean that there will be no live broadcasts on YouTube (at least in the US, and wherever else their agreement states no other broadcasts).

Will you be watching? Or just moaning about the lack of a free internet broadcast?

Well I'll sure be moaning if they cut my interweb feed.

Another great example of competitive capitalism - pay us to broadcast your programming! - oh and by the way, cut off the audience and platform you have been developing yourselves.

We might have a huge presence in every living room, but we're not self-confident enough to face any competition.

Should be on the front page for the general SA readership.

Hopefully a.) most will be out sailing and can record it , b.) NBC doesn't completely fuck up the production and c.) Don't have to watch or listen to Jobson doing commentary (they should get Casey).

 
I have OTABTV (HD Antenna for over the air broadcast) and the Interweb

if this is going to be NBC's main broadcast I'll get it otherwise yet another one I'll miss

anyone out their watched / recorded every race so far

How many races have you actually watched live or otherwise ??

I have a feeling I read somewhere that because every country has a different channel running it that there would be one overall production by the same guys who do the youtube stuff, NBC and all the other channels will just be streaming it and filling in the ads...

As for who's gonna be chatting non-sense at non-sailors, I have no idea, but if I'm going to sit through the whole thing it better be good...

Has anyone gotten this to work? I've tried it with the Newport Base Cam feed but the video doesn't load. Just black where the video should be.

No problem here, folks: If you don't have NBC or don't want to watch it on TV, just use a free proxy server like this one. Voila: Your IP is hidden and your Youtube isn't blocked.

In the US it is being presented live on NBC. Live webcam is working here:

Well, seeing Rebel6381 is in NY, and CT seems to have the same problem, I'd say it is a black-out issue. SR, not sure what is happening out there. Just checked and the webcam is up, having tried it on the desktop now.

Hmmmm.

Suffering through a 'Tummy Tuck' infomercial until the racing comes on. May not be so bad not having it right now...................................

Sorry guys but it just too funny. One of the world's top businessmen (or his minions) apparently makes deals with broadcasters, not only to pay them to play his content, but gives up all alternative delivery within those 'territories', but forgets to get a guarantee that the programming will actually be aired!

Tell me it's not true.

Edit: Well for the States it just might work afterall...

We are LIVE on NBC today at 1430 EDT - first time sailing has been on prime time since 1983!

If you are in the US, please tune in to NBC as American audiences will be geo-blocked on AC's YouTube.

We will have a replay at 1615 EDT that fans in the USA can watch.

NBC has some douchebag commentating...... Better get a foreign accent in there if you want Americans to watch.
