Does anyone know of any service that will be streaming the Bathhurst 100 this year?

SkyTV has the rights in NZ, so either via their STB, or SkyGo streaming service.

Personally, I'm hoping to be able to use UnoTelly + a "legitimate" source for streaming it. (dont mind paying a few dollars for the weekends event)

V8Supercars.com.au worked well for me last year.  Just paid for the enduro package which gave me Bathurst.  I think unblock us was getting aroudn the geoblocking as being in NZ I had to get it from sky.  I believe it's changed a bit this year in that they call out Aus residents saying talk to Foxtel.  But available to anyone else but NZ/AU

I've been using the V8Supercars.com.au streaming for most races this year. It seems to work pretty well, the quality isn't bad and it's a lot cheaper than sky. Using it with an older (free) version of Media-Hint to get around the geo-blocking.

They don't seem to have an option to just purchase one race, just a years subscription.

Nothing beats being at Bathurst for the race, was there for the 50th anniversary in 2012

Last year they had a years subscription to the enduro races I'm sure it was about $20. Covered three races.

Same here, streaming it from v8supercars.com.au site (superview) using getflix for geo blocking. All up superview + getflix for a year is less then 1 months sky.
I'm sure there will be a enduro package closer to the time

the quality of the v8 supercars stream was WAAAAAAAAY better than the other illegal streaming sites.
i just set up an account with my mates address in brizzy, then got my mate to log in to it from australia and pay for the package on his AU credit card, then i just logged in as usual to watch the race. i'm sure you guys could work out how to pay for it using an overseas card. (i think it gets blocked if you use a NZ card.)

v8supercars.com.au site says that even Australian viewers can't use their service this year. Seems Foxtel have the rights.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Yeah the streaming options have been quite roughly removed from the site.  I may have to find someone who still has sky sports :-)

Has anyone tried signing up via unblock us? I'm assuming they'll take my money, but then the stream won't work.
