Time to start a new AC thread!

The 35th America's Cup starts next Thursday, July 23, 2015 with the "Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series".

At least four events are scheduled in 2015, including:

Portsmouth, Great Britain - July 23-26, 2015
Gothenburg, Sweden - August 27-30, 2015
Hamilton, Bermuda - October 16-18, 2015

Four to six events are expected in 2016, including a second event in Portsmouth in July and a regatta in Chicago during the summer.

The 35th America’s Cup will be raced in Bermuda in June of 2017.

Practice racing starts in Portsmouth on Friday, July 24.
The competition consists of four fleet races - two each on Saturday and Sunday.

Does anyone know if these will be broadcast on any TV channels? Will it be on the AC YouTube channel? Has there been any announcement of the times for the races?

Time to flashmob your local sports bar with all your sailing rummies and get all 100 TVs tuned to the AC!

Good luck.

When I am on the road in Dubai, Tel Aviv, Johannesburg, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore, I can watch a sailing show produced by CNN called Mainsail, which recaps what ever the big event of the time is, be it an ocean race or AC.

I can never see that show here in the USA. I have emailed CNN to request they show it here as well, but never got a response.

Given the huge popularity of the last AC, with the excitement of 40 knot flying boats, I would hope ESPN or CNN or somebody here would show it. Last time, the fleet racing was more exciting (more crashes) than many of the 19 final races.

Here's a Mainsail clip on the Peyron brothers racing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utuD8p_wAjk

Mainsail used to be on tv here. Might have been on Speed or Outside. Those don't exist on Direct TV anymore. Shortly after AC 33 it was gone.

I'm thinking it will all wind up on Youtube anyway.

On Direct TV there is a ACWS show scheduled for Tue 7/28 at 7pm on NBCSports channel 220. Maybe a highlights show? NBCS has a secondary channel 220a which shows "to be announced" in the guide but that's normal for that channel.

What’s it like to sail a foiling America’s Cup boat with Ben Ainslie?

"strapping a large diver’s knife to my arm and checking the fit of a helmet that has a flip down, Top Gun style sun visor before being asked whether I had ever used an oxygen breather, provided some clues that I had stepped a long way outside of the normal world of performance sailing."

Looks like the Chinese will get to watch the America's Cup but not the Americans.

CCTVSE acquires exclusive rights for China in groundbreaking agreement

Maybe there will be a USA deal soon.

There was an announcement back in February that NBC would have coverage of all America's Cup World Series in 2015 and 2016 on NBCSN but nothing is listed on their website.

Scuttlebutt announcement of NBC coverage from February

Be sure to check for NBC Sports Network - it's different from the NBC scheduling. From http://www.nbcsports.com/nbc-sports-group-acquires-us-rights-35th-americas-cup

Dated Feb. 9, 2015:
Quote
The NBC Sports Group has acquired the U.S. broadcast rights for the 2017 America's Cup.

According to the deal announced Monday, NBC will provide live coverage of both weekends of the America's Cup match in Bermuda in summer 2017. Other live coverage of the match and the challenger elimination series will air on NBC and NBC Sports Network. Coverage of all America's Cup World Series events in 2015 and 2016 will be on NBCSN.

Unlike in 2013, when the America's Cup Event Authority bought air time and then sold advertising, this is a joint venture in which the NBC Sports Group and the ACEA will collaborate on sponsorship and advertising sales.

The America's Cup match will be between two-time defending champion Oracle Team USA and the winner of the challenger series.

I did like the Youtube thing last time... especially since it didn't have commercials for feminine hygiene products and stuff.

Obviously that would be a recap show? It's 2 days after the event?

So, the BT Sport deal is a newer announcement than the NBC one?
i am interested in a full replay of the live broadcast for european racing and live broadcast for bermuda racing.

from the bt sport site;
Can I order the BT Sport app and online player on its own?
No, but it's included for free with BT Sport on the Sky Digital Satellite Platform and with BT Sport on BT TV. The app and online player is also available with our BT Broadband packages for just £5 a month.

www.productsandservices.bt.com/products/bt-sport#sport-picker
How do I start using the BT Sport app and online player?
First, you need to download the app from the Apple App store or Google Play store.
Next, you need to activate the BT Sport app on your BT account. Just log in to bt , click on 'BT Sport' and follow the instructions.
When you use the app, and when you want to watch BT Sport at btsport.com, you'll need to enter your BT ID.

so far we got the app on my wife's iphone but i wasn't able to get to the next step. i am not so good at navigating websites on a little phone screen....or maybe usa people are blocked from signing up with bt?

Keep reading that page! It says that all IPs outside of the UK will be blocked, even if you have paid for the BT Sport package.
Look's like you'd have to have a BT Sports account and log in through a VPN to hide your location. How convenient!
Maybe that's because they want to negotiate a separate contract for each country/continent like they did for China. Our day will come...

Those commercials are the only reason I watch TV!
