So sky’s “live” coverage is a day late. Glad I didn’t stay up to watch it last night, would’ve been treated to the XC - which was also billed as live, but a day late.

Social media/vorb blackout for me for another day then...
Or see if my work VPN tricks it... :sneaky:

Yes, Sky has bought the sole rights to Worlds so you cannot watch it on Red Bull here.
Haven't tried myself but a VPN should work.

VPN working.
Seems my timing is way off, and the DH isn’t until tonight?
In that case my rant above is way off!

I have no skills in the VPN area sorry, I just happened to try our company one and it worked (no idea what it is/how it works etc)

It is a bit pants, I would love to know what viewership sky will really get compared to the numbers who normally watch on Red Bull. Also no Rob Warner on the sky feed :(

One option could be to sweet talk someone with a sky subscription for access to their Sky Go account :sneaky:

All good I've managed to get one going though some work equipment in Australia :D
Surely the sky numbers will be pretty miserable, especially on such a late event.

I guess this should be in a new thread for 2019...
Good to see that common sense prevails:

Thank fucking christ. I got sick of watching 45 minutes of red splits and never even seeing some of the hot-seat runs. It was a shitty season to watch.

I wonder how much Gwin placing 11th in 2018 and being unprotected for 2019 had to do with this decision...? :sneaky:
