Published on October 13th, 2015

Racing for the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series in Bermuda will be held Saturday and Sunday (October 17-18, 2015), and is available to view live on television and on mobile devices internationally via the Official America’s Cup App (subject to territorial restrictions).

“New features have also been added to AC+ on the Official America’s Cup App,” said Harvey Schiller, Commercial Commissioner of the 35th America’s Cup. “Fans now have a chance to watch Virtual Eye graphics and to catch up on the first two regattas with discounted rates for replays of the Portsmouth and Gothenburg events.”

On television, NBC Sports will broadcast Sunday’s races (Oct. 18) in the U.S. at 2 pm ET / 1 pm CT on television and simultaneously online through NBC Sports Live Extra. Viewers can also watch live racing and replays from both days on the official America’s Cup App.

In the UK and Ireland, both days of racing will air live on BT1 Sport – at 17:00 on Saturday, Oct. 17 and 17:30 on Sunday, Oct. 18. BT1 and BT2 Sport will run replays of racing throughout the week (check local listings). Highlight shows from the weekend will run on the BBC on Monday, Oct. 18 at 8:00 pm and Tuesday, Oct. 20 at 5:35 pm and 10:30 pm.

In Bermuda, racing is live on ZFB and via AC+ on the America’s Cup App.

Around the world, the Official America’s Cup App will keep this weekend’s racing at fans’ fingertips. Live streaming of all races will be available on mobile devices through the AC+ service within the app. AC+ exclusive coverage features live racing broadcasts, onboard camera views, video extras, replays and behind-the-scenes stories. Live coverage on AC+ is subject to territorial broadcast restrictions.

The Official America’s Cup App is available for Android and iOS devices via Google Play and the Apple iTunes store. The app is free to download and includes highlights, news, results and Virtual Eye race coverage. AC+ is a paid service (US$7.99 for the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Bermuda) for live streaming video (subject to territorial restrictions) and enhanced features.

Complete broadcast replays of the first two Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series events this year – Portsmouth and Gothenburg – are now available at a discounted rate through the America’s Cup app (territorial restrictions apply).
