So livestream is in real time and you get more content. I'm watching the 3rd leg of 2nd race and NBCSN is still showing commercials.
NBCSN is not really live and way behind on tweets, social media, and the app.

Now NBCSN showing commercial in the middle of the race . . .

Thanks for that link, PM!

I'm watching on live TV on NBCSN, no problems at all (comes up as NBCSH on my guide). I'm using old-school cable (Charter/Spectrum). Looks much better on my 46-inch Sony than my Motorola Android!

Ugh!!!!! Just when I was about to say that without Jobson, we won't get to hear my most dreaded phrase, then Kenny just blurted it out: "The old-timers say you can't have tacking duels and match race these things..." I'm going out to cut the grass.

NBC just missed an overlap due to commercial for fock sake.

Wow, aggressive moves and great racing between USA and NZ, nobody can say this isn't real sailboat racing any more.

Thanks for the stream link. My connection kept dropping, but the VirtualEye worked. It was about a minute ahead of the BT video stream.

USA vs NZ was awesome! Shifty and puffy conditions with multiple lead changes - wow.

Then in GBR vs JP, Ben Ainslie nearly took out the Softbank crew in the pre-start. Luckily nobody appears to have been hurt. I expect we'll see some YouTube video of that crash soon.

That prestart collision was nasty! GBR would have taken on a lot of water if their hull had been in the water during the race.

Yes. GBR's hull came down on top of JP, holing her hull on the bottom, and narrowly missing all the JP crew in their grinding stations. Team JP could have been crushed. Both shore teams are going to be busy fixing the boats tonight.

It won't be long now for the nickname "Crash" Ainslie to stick.

You can watch for free in the US without all of the commercials, etc. using the Android or iOS America's Cup app.

I just plugged my tablet into the TV (their chromecast implementation appears to not work) and watched the whole day in HD.

Nicknames aside, I guess Ainsle isn't happy unless he's on top of another boat??? (Think about it...)

Can't believe I missed it because I was cutting grass! How do I get to see a replay of that and the USA / NZL race???

You can full replay on NBCSN app for now. It's listed under "fleet" racing. Lol.

Team Softbank Japan is lucky that their raised foil caught BAR's hull and kept it from landing on the crew. Otherwise, the encounter could have become tragic.

Groupama (FR) just beat Artemis (SWE) by 3 seconds! Way to get back into the game France.

NZL looks to be the Challenger to beat so far. Burling needs to fire his image consultant, pronto. He looks like Marilyn Manson behind the wheel...

Let's see what SWE does in the breeze, which they are fast in. Yesterday had 30 degree shifts all day in lighter breeze. Being in the right place paid off huge.
Don't rule out JPN or GBR, still a lot of experimenting going on with their foils and setup. Everybody has a chance less FRA.

Wow, did Cammas blow that start! Great comeback on the weather leg, though, and held it to the first gate. Ainsle isn't exactly looking like he's up to the task since the collision two days ago.
