    Maybe I’m dim, but I’m not satisfied. Take this sentence:

    “Unfortunately there are still some countries, including USA, Brazil and Canada to which we are unable to live stream and so it is necessary to geoblock this content.”

    I understand why they might not be able to livestream (as in, show the contest live online), but I don’t get why they must geoblock the videos long after the event is over! The 2016 live stream was a year ago and the vids are still blocked to American viewers. It’s very odd.

      To be clear: I’m asking why, because the event wasn’t livestreamed, the individual live performances (e.g., the Dihaj performance shown above) must eternally be geoblocked.

    To be honest as a serious researcher in Eurovision, not being able to see the official Eurovsion.tv broadcast in the USA of any kind is amazingly bad. I’ve had to find workarounds that are not always happy. Full power by EBU to resolve this.

    I hope this puts the “It’s all the USA’s fault” crap to rest once and for all.
