2010 CrossFit Games Finals

The Revolution Will Now be Televised (on the Web)

Details on the free live webcast from the Home Depot Center.

The 2010 CrossFit Games Finals are less than 10 days away. If you don't have your tickets yet, it's still not too late to be part of CrossFit Games history. If you can't be there in person, all is not lost: the Games will be streamed to the web in real time via our free live webcast.

This production will be unlike anything CrossFit fans have seen before. You'll get over 30 hours of live HD coverage and analysis (in SD if you don't have sufficient bandwidth to stream full HD). Three JumboTrons and a dozen 55" plasmas will broadcast the feed throughout the Home Depot Center to optimize spectator experience. Thirteen different cameras will bring you live action from every single heat of every single event, putting you right on the arena floor with the athletes. Slow-motion instant replays and highlight reels will showcase our sport as the footage is broadcast to fans all over the world. 

You will be there when Event Director Dave Castro reveals the events one hour before they occur. We'll also take you behind the scenes into the athlete staging and warmup areas. You'll see candid interviews with the athletes, teams, coaches and special guests, plus regular debates and discussions at our Analyst Desk hosted by Pat Sherwood, Josh Everett and Caity Matter Henniger.

CrossFit is working with NEP Screenworks and Level3 to bring you the highest quality production possible. We now have a world-class team experienced in covering international sporting events and bringing them to the web. NEP has a mountain of broadcast experience, and CrossFit will be utilizing a full production truck that’s part of the fleet that delivers X-Games, NFL and Major League Baseball broadcasts. Level3 brought the Superbowl and Olympics to the web. The sweat, emotion and drama of the CrossFit Games have never been seen like this before.

Join us for a 30min live Preview Show at 6pm PDT on Thursday, July 15. Full coverage will commence on Friday, July 16 around 8:45am. We're just putting the finishing touches on the new player. In a couple days, we'll give you the links to the player and the updated viewing schedule. It's going to be epic!

This is fantastic. Good work guys. Will the coverage be accessible through a library once it has aired, like the SW Regional was on an hourly basis, or will it be edited into events? We're 7 hours ahead here in the UK so 7pm PDT is 2am GMT!

Yeah, would love to see an hour-by-hour archive... with kids and work and such I just can't be in front of my computer for 24 hours that weekend!

For reasons I don't fully understand, Crossfit HQ takes a lot of heat on discussion boards for a variety of supposed misdemeanours. Perhaps because of jealousy or because people feel such a sense of ownership in this thing that we have grown up with that they hold it to a higher standard.

For all those complainers, please ask yourselves the following question......what other sport in the world would organise and stream live coverage of their elite annual event for FREE! FREEEEEEEEEEE

I would gladly pay a hundred bucks for this - it is absolutely brilliant & I feel incredibly grateful to follow the Games and to be able to view the two representatives from our affiliate in Australia from the other side of the world.

this is brilliant news.

er...Jenkins....you may actually find that all of those events, (yes all of them) SELL the rights to their events to TV networks for many millions and sometimes hundreds of millions of dollars.

Those networks pay to producer the coverage themselves and then pass on those charges to us in the form of commercial breaks and often subscription fees,

Crossfit is handling coverage themselves and then streaming it live into our homes.

And how much did it cost you to watch?

Are you for real? Huh? How much do commercials cost you in Australia?

jenkins,

allow me to answer for nick.

commercials cost everybody in the form of uninvited interruptions to your coverage. you may be used to it by now but your viewership is being sold to the highest bidder. this is free to air TV.

but you know that, you're just a f*ckwit troll

Any idea if a 10Mbps download will be enough bandwidth for this? I plan on streaming this via wireless N to my PS3 and onto the projector this weekend.

15. Murph wrote...

Can the games be seen through this website or is there another link to go to?

16. John wrote...

Can I stream this on my PS3? How about Xbox 360?

17. Kurt wrote...

It works on the PS3 since it has a browser
