Too late now, but it will be on Youtube sometime on Wednesday night. Look for the label " Race 19 "

Another thing to hate about NC? Direct TV channel 220 has been good for me. And within minutes after each race I would get a text that the race was now on YT. Since I had Direct TV I didn't bother with live streaming online.

Could it be your cable provider is hosing you down? Well, I mean about the AC races.

Just watched it live anchored off a little island in the middle of nowhere.

Technology is great, but the blockage in some countries reminds me of the silly DVD region codes which have since been defeated.

Re: US coverage of the Americas Cup - HELP!!

To block coverage in the participating countries, including the host country is absurd!

I don't know if this was US Sailing or the Americas Cup consortium or what.
Sailing is a dying art, particularly in this country. Anything to encourage sailing should be embraced, not censored.

Well, SCREW THE AMERICAS CUP AND THE BOAT THEY SAILED IN ON!!!

I'll watch football!

Watched live on NBC Sports Network in Jacksonville, Florida. During the commercials on free America's Cup App. I am truly sorry that you missed it. Honestly this is not sarcasm.

Re: US coverage of the Americas Cup - HELP!!

The blackout in USA was imposed by NBC who bought exclusive rights.

I'm in the USA. I watched every race live. I don't know what you mean about a blackout in the USA.

NBCSP, ergo the NBC Sports Channel, has carried every race live and in color

My satellite provider doesn't even offer NBC Sports. Way to go NBC!
