Does anyone know...

I've just been looking to see if we're going to be able to watch this on TV over here and it doesnt look like it, only on YouTube.

A bit disappointing if thats the case.

Cheers

Dave

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

I'm taking that to mean it won't be on proper tv?

I did see that but at the top the heading is 33rd Americas cup, this is the 34th so I assumed it was an old webpage left over from before.

I wont cancel sky just yet then :)

There's nothing there that shows there will be AC coverage on Sky. Just some ancient stuff on ACWS in SF from last year.

This is in fact a good thing since there's normally live YouTube coverage that gets blocked in countries where a broadcaster has bought the rights.

For the America's Cup and Louis Vuitton Cup 2013:

Below are the broadcast partners in various countries and announced coverage for 2013.   Checking the online schedule for your individual country broadcaster may provide additional guidance, and in some cases, streaming video. 

USA:
Round Robin coverage will be online via YouTube Channel.  Louis Vuitton Cup Semi-Finals and Finals will be shown on NBC SportsNetwork (NBCSN).  Currently scheduled are all races of the LVC Final, and two days of the LVC Semi-Final, likely August 9 and 10.  Details to follow. NBCSN is available as a free over-the-air digital channel in many major markets, and on cable.

The opening Matches of the America's Cup Match will be shown live on NBC (the main network, not NBCSN), the weekend of September 7th and 8th.  The rest of the Match will be shown live on NBCSN.  http://www.cupinfo.com/en/acrm-americas-cup-2013-lvc-race-schedule-11054.php" rel="nofollow - See Daily Louis Vuitton Cup and America's Cup Race Schedule

On days that racing is not broadcast live for television, it should be available on the America's Cup YouTube channel (see at left).  The opening ceremony press conference will also be live on July 5th online. 

Highlights package may be available in some markets on Comcast SportsNet.

UK:
Sky Sports is the broadcast partner.

http://www.cupinfo.com/en/americas-cup-world-series-tv-video-1.php currently gives "file not found". In any case, that's a fan site, not an official one.
