Full Television & Live-Stream Schedule for 2019 US National Championships

2019 PHILLIPS 66 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

As has become the norm for domestic swim meets in the United States, there will be a split stream for finals of the 2019 US Nationals between the NBC Sports website (which will simulcast the “A” finals on TV) and the USA Swimming website, which will stream the “B” finals only.

Full prelims sessions, as well as the slower heats of distance races, will be available to watch exclusively via a stream on the USA Swimming home page.

As the weekend arrives, there will be an additional tape-delayed replay of the finals sessions on NBC Sports the following day, mid-day.

Such a disaster for swim fans. Especially for fans outside of USA.
Until 2015 or 2016 everybody could watch these meets entirely prelims and all finals live and free on the USA swimming website.
It was simple and great to promote the sport. I miss that period.

Where were you last week? Missed here

Can you not use a VPN to get the video?

Ger

It’s not a geoblock issue though. The A finals are only on MSNBC and Olympic channel. But there are ways around it; using the links put up for the WC’s for example.

how so? please elaborate more, thanks

Ger

Well, I’m outside the U.S. and I could connect to my U.S. VPN but I would also need a subscription to a U.S. cable supplier to watch NBCSN. So I would have to find another way. Someone put links up for the WC’s last week and you could watch that way, no VPN required.

Bobo Gigi, it’s great to have you back. We in the comment sections have all missed you.

Is there a way you can stream Worlds for free?

Heyitsme

So is there a reason they can’t be live the whole week?? What the hell

Kit

Every session will be shown live by either the USA swimming stream, NBC, or the Olympic Channel. NBC is just adding in replays in the afternoon/late night like they do for most high level meets.

Okay thank you for explaining, I was about to be real mad
