SailGP Sydney: Where to watch

Photo Sail GP - Seems Sail GP is arranging a late global broadcast & Stream scheme, with days for the first Sail GP event ever, the organizer have announced today some possible channels (as some to be defined yet):
Fox Sports (Australia), Canal+ (France), BT Sport (UK), DAZN (Japan) and SKY Sport (New Zealand) .  In the US an other countries stream might be available through a new Sail GP to be announced App or Facebook stream.

We hope they can arrange a global stream, don't get the reason to launch such new big event to restrict
access, as it is not an established one like F1 or AC where one might consider to pay per view.

Countless of times we have mentioned how the Pro Surfing circuit streams Live without restrictions, gaining major reach and viewers, thus providing announcers best numbers possible, that is the way to go in our view for the Sail GP and even Americas Cup.

Check details below for more details on the Sail GP streams for Sydney.

SailGP announces extensive global coverage ahead of first event in Sydney Broadcast agreements span 90 countries across five continents, complemented by comprehensive and innovative multi-platform digital distribution
SAN FRANCISCO - February 11, 2019 – SailGP today announced comprehensive multi-platform coverage spanning linear and digital channels, offering fans unprecedented access to the new global sports championship setting out to redefine sailing.

Set for its world premiere in Sydney this week, SailGP’s innovative global distribution plan includes broadcast agreements that ensure coverage in 90 countries, across five continents.

Fox Sports (Australia), Canal+ (France), BT Sport (UK), DAZN (Japan) and SKY Sport (New Zealand) have each secured exclusive arrangements for live coverage across their linear and digital offerings, supplemented by SailGP’s mobile application.

The U.S. broadcast partner is expected to be announced later this week. In the United States, racing will air live on Facebook alongside full access on the SailGP APP, set to be released this week. The app will offer a multi-feed, data-rich service that will allow viewers to watch the host broadcast with 11 feeds featuring onboard coverage from each boat.

Chinese fans will be able to access live coverage in Mandarin on Tencent’s qq.com, as well as the Tencent Sports, News, Video and Penguin Live mobile applications.

SailGP will also be broadcast on SuperSport across sub-Saharan Africa; Fox Sports Asia; and the Nordic Entertainment Group in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland, with highlight programs scheduled on its sports television channels. In addition, ARENA Sport will provide Balkan racing fans with coverage, while fans in Israel can follow the action on Charlton’s ‘Sport’ channels. All offerings across these networks will be complemented by low-latency coverage on Facebook Live and the SailGP APP, giving fans near-instant access to SailGP’s revolutionary racing.

“We’re very fortunate to have such a dynamic group of broadcast partners that will bring our new and redefined form of sailing to expanded audiences around the globe,” said SailGP CEO Russell Coutts. “Using the latest technology and through these valuable partnerships, we will deliver a broadcast and digital product that caters to modern consumption habits and brings our sport to life in a way that hasn’t been done before.”

As previously announced, Fox Sports will carry live coverage in Australia – home to the inaugural SailGP event on Sydney Harbour, February 15-16. The television broadcast will be bolstered by live streaming coverage on Kayo Sports.

BT Sport will become the home of SailGP in the UK and Ireland across its linear and OTT offerings, and Canal+ will provide dedicated coverage of each of the five events in France throughout its multiple platforms. DAZN will feature live and delayed coverage in Japan, while SKY Sport in New Zealand will carry the live feed, alongside free-to-air coverage on Prime.

The coverage will be complemented, on a territory basis, by a range of highlights and delayed programming across SailGP’s various social media platforms.

Whisper Films will work alongside SailGP to create the world feed. Using drones and patented LiveLineFx technology and on-screen graphics, fans will enjoy the most immersive, multi-platform global broadcast experience the sport has ever seen. The personality-driven content will include live event racing and highlights packages, in-venue live feeds, information packages and pre-produced vignettes, extensive athlete-focused features, and enhanced pre- and post-race analysis.
