AC WORLD SERIES NEWS – The “Super Sunday” final races of AC World Series San Francisco will be broadcast nationwide on NBC on Oct. 7, beginning at 1:30 p.m. (PDT).
More than 20 years had passed since the America’s Cup was on network television, but NBC broke that trend in July when it broadcast the final day of AC World Series Newport. It followed up with a similar program on the final day of AC World Series San Francisco in August.
The broadcast agreement with NBC preempts the YouTube coverage of the final day in the U.S., but replays, highlights and on-demand full replay coverage are unaffected and will be available to American viewers throughout all four days of the America’s Cup World Series San Francisco.
Viewers in the Bay Area can also tune in Thursday to Saturday on NBC Bay Area (11.2), while viewers across California can watch on NBC’s California NonStop channel as well as Comcast Sportsnet.
Globally, the Emmy award-winning coverage is available on more than 35 networks, including Mediaset in Italy, Canal+ in France, SkySports in the UK, Supersport in South Africa, Rogers Sportsnet in Canada, OSN across the Middle-East, Fox Sports in Australia, TVE in Spain and TVNZ in New Zealand.
