Paul, you haven't been paying attention. Ellison has done NOTHING good for this sport. He has just turned it into a rich person's commercialized drag race on a go-cart course for American NASCAR fans. He has completely ruined the entire intent and history of the America's Cup. And the whole thing is dangerous. And he cheats. And his name is Larry Ellison. Did I mention catamarans and Ellison? That too.

And I think Larry is bribing Dean Barker to throw the race. He's the Devil incarnate, I tell you!

Watch the wind conditions on rhe Golden Gate Bridge here: SailFlow - Golden Gate Base - Wind Conditions & Forecast

It doesn't look good, but the wind is supposed to swing around soon.

Re: Why Would you Blackout the America's Cup Live Streaming in the US

AC72s are simply amazing. Teams love them, performances are unreal and the races so far have been unlike anything we've seen before. For those of you crying for the old mono-hulls, times change. That's like asking Formula 1 to drive 4-door sedans just because the average person associates themselves with it...Larry is a competitor and as such plays to win. Stop envying the guy for being successful and rich and enjoy the show!

Re: Why Would you Blackout the America's Cup Live Streaming in the US

The Good News: YouTube is carrying live streaming without commercials.
The Bad News: It's blacked out in the US
The Good News: You can stream it via a proxy server from another country.

The easiest way to do that is to use Firefox with the Hola unblocker plug-in (Hola is also available for Windows Internet Explorer, Android, Chrome and other browsers) it's also free.

Hola puts a little flamming smiley in your toolbar. Open the AC feed on YouTube, if it shows 'blocked' just click the Hola smiley and choose another country to proxy from. Bada Boom, Badda Bing ... AC racing on your monitor sans cable fees. You gotta love hackers.

I've found that sometimes the Hola unblocker doesn't work. In that case I try another Hola server, or just retry with the same server. This should be pretty obvious if you're running Hola -- just don't give up it it doesn't work the first time.

One more time, we have watched every race on NBC Sports Network here in Jacksonville, Florida. The US is not blacked-out. Rich

Same here in Chicago. Comcast channel 174 here (in HD) which in NBC's sports channel. But if you scroll through the guide, you might not see it because they thought the series would be over by now so they scheduled other stuff and listed it in the guide. So you have to find what channel NBC Sports is on to see if it's on in your area.

Re: Why Would you Blackout the America's Cup Live Streaming in the US

I've been dual screening my viewing with NBCSN and America, the virtual view they're using on TV.

Virtual Eye is usually 8 seconds ahead, so you can get an advanced view of the broadcast. There is also an option for an audio feed, but haven't bothered.

Looking forward 3 more races, if possible.

I have dish without the channel as well so downloaded the app from America's cup website and watched today's race live. It worked fine. Not the most exciting race today though.
