USAG announced they are partnering with FloSports. Last time I checked it was a $30/month subscription Hopefully there are other avenues to watch.
I think the big, big meets will still be on NBC, but smaller meets such as JO Nationals, Eastern/Westerns, etc...will be on Flo. I did receive an email with an offer of 20% off for being a USAG member.USAG announced they are partnering with FloSports.

The petition is a good idea. We should all boycott FloGymnastics and encourage others to do so as well.
WOAH! WHAT????So the heels of one of the worst scandals ever, when people don’t trust them and question the direction of the sport USA Gym goes... “Let’s team up with a horrid company, who shared pornographic images of a gymnast we allowed to be abused, and charges 10 times what they should for terrible content and the worst streaming services ever!”
Excellent plan y’all
So what is Flosports, and what will it mean for gymnastics?
I just cannot believe that at a time when MAG is facing an existential crisis, USAG's response is to make their one major national competition other than championships harder to see. Completely idiotic and destructive.
McKayla Maroney was hacked and nude were taken from her phone and published without permission. She was a minor at the time. Flo linked directly to those photos and when they were called out on it, doubled down that linking people to the content was newsworthy. They never apologized.WOAH! WHAT????
I would note that they do this for many dance competitions in the US and it works, however, gymnastics and dance are very different. In dance the girls warm-up off stage, in hallways or in dressing rooms and one act competes at a time. A camera person can set up once and achieve the same recording value of every performer.I don’t know how it works in the US, but here in Dance competitions you can’t video or photograph anything on stage. Just like if you went to a professional theatre show, you would not be able to video or take photos.
There are professional videographers and photographers at every event and you can purchase the videos and photos.
It works well. In the audience no one has to worry about cameras obstructing view, or people videoing other peoples kids and routines.
People can still take photos of awards and on the backdrops outside the theatre. They still share these online, and people still purchase their own kids videos/photos online after purchase.
I’m not trying to say this change is good. Just that we get used to doing things a certain way, but there d CD an still be advantages to other ways.
