America’s Cup coverage on TV ONE

TVNZ’s America’s Cup coverage starts on TV ONE this Monday July 8.

We kick off with the first race in the Round Robin series of the 2013 America’s Cup.

Fans can watch online – with all of the races streamed in full at – the fantastic new one-stop-shop for all the latest news and video on Team New Zealand and the America’s Cup.

During the ‘Breakfast’ show, the team will also cross to our ONE NEWS Yachting Correspondent, Martin Tasker, who is live on the water in San Francisco.

Martin Tasker says this year’s series will be a special one to watch.

“The allure of the America’s Cup has always been what you don’t know…you especially “don’t know” which boat is quickest until they actually line up,” he comments.

“And in the case of this 34th Cup in giant multi-hulls we probably don’t know more than ever. That’s what makes it so fascinating and keeps us watching.”

In an online first, this year, users can get all of the following great content whether they are viewing on desktop, tablet or mobile:

  • Live Streaming of all races from Louis Vuitton Round Robin through to the America’s Cup final in September
  • Full race catch up – in case you missed the live races
  • Highlights of the must-see moments from each race
  • News, previews, reviews and interviews (video and text) in the build-up and throughout the three months of racing
  • Additional commentary and blog content from our sailing expert Martin Tasker

From Wednesday August 7, ‘Breakfast’ will feature live coverage in full from the Louis Vuitton Best of 7 Semi-final series.

This special live programming will continue on race days after the conclusion of ‘Breakfast’ until the finish of the race.

Our resident sailing expert, Martin Tasker, will continue to update viewers from the US throughout the next three months at:
