I've been watching the Tour De France on NBCSP (Comcast cable) so I'm guessing they will also have the AC? I hope they cover all the lead in racing this summer, not just the finals. Last AC, some of the fleet racing on the 45's was much more exciting (and lots of crashes!) than some of the finals.

Some of it was hard to watch, especially in the very beginning (think way back to the training wheels/poles on the mark boats), but fleet racing almost always has more excitement opportunity than match racing.

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.
Maybe that's because they want to negotiate a separate contract for each country/continent like they did for China. Our day will come...


I got it working here in the US, but it comes with some headaches. First, you have to have a UK provider that includes Sky Sport or BT Sport in the package before you can stream with an account. I have family in London so I used their acct and password. Then you need to use the addon extention Stealthy and configure it to "GB" (United Kingdom proxy). It did not work using FF but did work using Chrome. Be patient because it takes several minutes for the proxy to establish.

So it's doable, but you will need access to an account.

Well this says NBCS will broadcast all of it, I just wonder if anything has changed because of the changes made to the ACWS.

Just my guess, but remember that annoying anchor for AC34? Todd Harris? Well, the $$golden child$$ for NBC Sports is the Tour de France, which Todd Harris is the anchor, along with Bob Roll and Christian Vande Velde. Unfortunately, the Tour de France is happening right now and at the same time as Portsmouth. To broadcast live, both are happening simultaneously. NBC Sports is just one network. They are not going to bump the Tour to broadcast ACWS Portsmouth. Ain't gonna happen.

Timbo, do you ever feel "Not so fresh?"

I watch for the drug commercial that has everyone in bathtubs. Maybe it treats some disease like leprosy where you have to wash a lot... Or maybe it treats OCD hand-washers? Or maybe the drug just makes you want to take baths.. outdoors?

I think the Portsmouth stop was the best..> Big wind and they didn't know that much about controlling those things at that stage in the trials....

They have 2 channels on Direct TV so we will see. I doubt NBCS will actually film the events. They would just pick up the feed and broadcast.

I have the app on my phone but it doesn't download any data. Basically a dead app.

Whenever I have that 'not so fresh' feeling, I pour a little Fresca on a pantie liner and then strap it on. It gives me that little extra lift I need to make it through all my house cleaning and doing the laundry, and I have a spring in my step too.

I just Tweeted Todd Harris of NBC (my first Tweet!) and he said "Sadly NO, I'm on #tourdefrance2015 duty. Not sure about coverage maybe a delayed high light show but NO live. Bummer "

Please write to NBC and ask for AC coverage. It may not get done for Portsmouth but maybe they will show Gothenburg in August if enough people gripe about it.

It's dead. It does have the data for the virtual eye for all the LV races and the Cup races, as well as the results, schedule (34th AC), and teams, etc.

I will provide the apk + data if any body wants it to side load and play with it.
