Is it right that if we are in nz along with some other countries then we cannot use the app to watch the cup
? Only graphics? Wtf
Does anyone know why that is and then does anyone know where it can be watched.
..happy to pay just need to do it on mobile device. Thanks for any info

That is my understanding.

Sky have the NZ rights.

I checked up on this on  the 'official AC website' the other night.

 

If you know of a friend or family member with Sky Go, and have good internet connection, you are sorted, as I am. Use their log on at your place (assuming they aren't using it)

I'm sure there are work arounds to get pirate coverage from other geographic regions. I know people who watch the rugby like that, if you can be bothered (are are comfortable pirating content, some aren't, even if its Larry / Russel)...

You could of course buy sky, but they just dropped their 'per event' subscription package, so you have to sign up for a year or what ever...

can't see it happening really...

That sucks for those who do not want sky but are happy to pay on mobile device...race by race would make sense.
Cheers for answer

Most of the racing is on between 5am and 7am NZ time.

You can get a Sky Fan Pass, $20 for one week, gets access to sky sports channels 1-4, so looks like you can watch some racing that way, if you feel like it.

You didn't get the memo? In 4 days time Sky drops the one day and weekly Fan Pass and doubles the price of the monthly Fan Pass to $100.

Wankers
That's what they were advertising last night.

I did hear they were putting the price up. I thought they had already as didn't think those current rates were all that cheap. Would have bone $20 / week, won't do $100 for anything.

Man what a monopoly
Where is the competition that keeps prices in check.

TV broadcasting can hardly be called a monopoly in this country

Not that I would condone such behaviour but you could always try a VPN service to get around the geo restrictions.
