Free World Cup Video Online

Postby E365 » Sat Nov 22, 2008 1:19 pm

A timely post here, but this NBC Universal website is showing some free FIS World Cup races! I'm watching the first race from Sweden now.....

Click the top banner where is says "Skiing Live Now" "Watch it now". Pretty cool, but the video feed is really narrow. Wonder if that's because we are watching it for free, or it saves bandwidth, or both?

I got the "skinny screen" issue fixed by updating Flip4Mac.

How nice to have the video saved on the page there and not having to watch the live feed only.
