I thought I was going to watch on NBC Sports iPad app, but couldn't connect. I had 2to 3 bars and intermittent 3G at anchor. YouTube worked great, although, it seemed to automatically degrade the quality to accommodate. I preferred that over buffering interruptions.

I wasn't sure youtube was going to work, as they claimed it would blocked in certain areas, during broadcast television segments. Pretty sure the first two races are the only ones that are going to be on broadcast TV, with the remainder on NBC Sports cable.

I may catch today's races on wifi back at the slip.
