Why is this meet not being televised for free on USA Swimming like an Arena Pro Series meet so we all can watch? Last year I had to purchase the Big 10 network to watch. You should not have to purchase a whole package to watch one meet. I’m not doing it this year. No way. How is the sport of swimming suppose to grow when you limit access to meets like this? This meet should be covered by Pac-12 and USA Swimming for free so that we all can watch.

There’s a workaround for that scenario that may be worth exploring. 1-week trials are available from Fubo & Sling for free. Depending on what package you sign up for, I believe the Pac-12 Network is usually offered. I used the trial version of Fubo for Worlds, the streaming was really high quality and you can even DVR up to 10 programs!
