The "A" races start in 1 hour at 2:15pm eastern.
We received a phone call from the international rights holder of the meet presumably at the request of Flotrack. If you live in the United States, there is no free streaming option that is authorized. You need to pay $20 to flotrack to watch it. Please do not post links to unauthorized streams in the US.
I'll just point out that it is trivial to find a stream for this meet by searching on Google, if you really care (I have other things to do).
Wejo, you might consider updating your PHP text search to block posts containing the word "Flotrack". Sounds like it is time to block Flotrack from this site.
I do know this is an authorized site Swedish visitors.
Some Brit can send us/post the British link if there is one.
I don't anything about the legality of anything. We're not in the business of determining what links are authorized and which ones aren't. Legally, LetsRun.com is well protected and we are not responsible for what 3rd parties post on our site, we don't pre-screen posts, but if a rights holder contacts us we will take down something.
|Fact or Opinion|
There is a 100% you can go to FLOTRACK and watch the live stream. If you watched all the meets they offered this month it comes out to about 3$ for each meet. I think it is coming together why they are charging $20 a month. I never imagined ever that they would be showing live feeds of the best indoor meets in the world. I dont work for Flotrack and was def against the $20 a month payment but it is starting to come together now. I bet over the next year it will come down but the start up fees are prob getting pretty expensive.
Anyone else think it's time for the BroJos to take the bull by the horn and start competing directly with flotrack? For quite a while they were distinct services that were valued by all, but flotrack is causing a rift and they need some competition if they are going to drop their prices.
I would even consider paying to BroJos 20 bucks a month just because I like letsrun.com enough.
I don't blame Flotrack for not wanting people to find unauthorized streams, but that's a drawback in today's era of being a rights holder. It's a cost of doing business.
The thing that bugs me is just how it was handled. We also received a phone call from the rights group in Europe about the British meet on Saturday. The presumption was letsrun.com was a bad actor in all of this because people had posted links to streams that were unauthorized at 7 am on a Saturday. We don't pre-screen content, that stuff happens on forums. Legally, we're very well protected. Flotrack themselves could easily just have emailed or called us.
$20 to watch a meet is a lot. Contrary to what Runners World said I don't have a problem with people charging.It's their business they can run it how they want.
There isn't much of an audience for these meets so the thinking is I believe, people who would pay $5 maybe would pay $20 is the way I see it. If 1/1000 would only pay $5. Would 1/3000 pay $20? You're still coming out ahead financially.
The public can vote by not paying and yes other groups will look at doing this for free or a cheaper price.
If it's streaming and not TV, the meet could do it itself very easily.
Flotrack has never been in the business of broadcasting pro meets. Presumably their traditional advertising model isn't cutting it for them and they needed something to entice people to sign up for Flotrack pro. Many college conferences aren't letting them come in anymore and broadcast their stuff for free. So Flotrack scooped up the rights to 3 indoor European meets. Pro meets don't come free for the broadcasters so now Flotrack is even more committed to the pay model.
Live updates, it seems, including misses and makes in the HJ and PV (at 4.25 now). [obtained by going to the LetsRun page on the meet; my thanks to management]
Get a VPN (http://lifehacker.com/5940565/why-you-should-start-using-a-vpn-and-how-to-choose-the-best-one-for-your-needs). Then you can fake your location as though you are over there. Then BBC Player or whatever won't block you because they think you are watching it from over there. And it's cheaper than Flotrack with better commentary!
People do this all the time.
