Greater Toronto Regional is happy to announce a second year webcast run by Discovery Channel (Canada). Last year they did a wonderful job interviewing people and filling space between matches. There were some issues with our fine American neighbors however in that there were blackouts in some areas. I have been working with Discovery Channel and I believe they have the issue resolved. With help from my gracious friends here on CD I believe that all were able to see last years archives.
I am attaching the links to last year for others to test. I was not able to test the mid states or the western US. Please email/PM me if you try and are unable to access. Here’s looking to another great year with FIRST. Remember to drive it like you stole it but be sure that it is in OVERDRIVE.
Can you see if any folks you know in the U.S. can see our archived webcast from last year?
I believe we’ve been able to take the Canadian geolock off…
FIRST Robotics, Greater Toronto Regionals - March 30
Ok everyone, I have just spoken to Peter again and explained that we want world wide coverage and listed a lot of our problem areas. They thought that the Geolock was off and don’t understand why it is being blocked. He has a team working on it now.
When I hear back from him I will post and we can retest with the CD community. Thanks for helping us out, we hope to fix soon. Good thing is that there are 4 weeks to resolve this issue.
PS: Jeff I hope that we can get you hooked up so that you can see 188’s awesome robot in action. I know that you are going through withdrawal in France.
All the links at the top have been truncated with periods in the middle. It is possible that Geolock IS off for all the FIRST stuff, but we’re all getting redirected to discovery’s default program (JetStream for me), which would be geolocked.
