The coverage can be watched but only with the NBC commentator Todd Harris and no on the water  reporter that the world feed with Kenny Read.  I guess NBC did not think they had the numbers to pay for the world feed, next they will probably stop showing it live!

What was the line from the song?  57 channels and nothing on?

with all the tv channels and now internet feeds you would think corporate America could keep its hands out of the cookie jar.

The live viewing in the US is sometimes on the NBC-SN network and always on the NBC Sports App.
