I think you can only pay with credit card, thus far I have not seen paypal option

I don't know if this is only recent, but there is a Paypal option now!

I was able to sign up for a subscription to TVTeka, using PayPal. I intend to use TVTeka for events not covered by IceNetwork (such as the JGPF).

I use Google, which translates the TVTeka.com page automatically.
I assume I will have to sign in at the top of the page (which doesn't get translated).

Where will I find the choice for the JGPF events?

Thanks for any help.

euterpe, I am looking into your question.

Yes, you sign in at the top of the page once you have an account where it is blue and says "Bxod". Enter the email address (Электронная почта) and the password (Пароль) for your account and then hit the Boйти button.

If you do not have an account, you need to click on the big white tab that has "P.....я" at the top and enter the email address (Электронная почта) and the password (Пароль) twice (once in each of the two Пароль fields) that you want to use for your account. Then hit "отправить" button to submit. You will get an email with a link. Click on the link to activate your account. It will open the TVTeka site.

At this point be careful. The link for the free 3 day trial (http://tvteka.com/test_period) will be in the green notice on top of the screen (click on "запросить" in "Или запросить бесплатный 3-х дневный тестовый просмотр"). This will send you another email letting you know that TVTeka is processing your 3 day trial request. Clicking on "Закрыть" in the green bar will get rid of the green bar notice.

The JGPF events will be shown live on NTV Plus Sport Online. I posted the schedule in the GPF forum.

On the TVTeka home page, click on the image that looks like this (http://tvteka.com/img/blue/channels/nsportonline.png) to watch NTV Plus Sport Online.

On the right hand side a timeline should appear that will let you go back and watch recorded programs from that day.

The Программа link at the top of the page will take you to a calendar listing of all of the channels and programs. You can find older archived material there.

I am waiting for my 3-day trial to be activated to test out other features.

:( I don't see a paypal payment option on the "Оплата" (payment) page, just Visa/Mastercard.

TVTeka is flash player based (like icenetwork), so it will work on both Macs and PCs as long as your connection and computer's hardware are up to the task.

When I get some time I will work on a visual guide to signing up for and using TVTeka for english speakers.

If you are loged in the tvteka website, you have the option of paying with visa-mastercard and other options, paypal is also displayed


It shows to me that option, but maybe if you are on trial period thatīs why the paypal option is not displayed yet

Thanks, His Weirness and Braulio.

I used to watch skating on WebTV, but after hearing all the problems this season, I decided to go with TVTeka since users reported it was more reliable and cheaper.

Navigating was a bit of an adventure, but with the help of Google, I got through the process successfully. I had to use PayPal because my credit card company would not allow a transaction with a foreign entity to go through.

Does anyone know if TVTeka will be showing Russian Nationals, Euros, Jr Worlds and Worlds?

Russian nationals is broadcasted usually on the NTV Plus Sport channels so that event must be a YES

Some seasons ago, US Nationals (taped coverage) and 4 Continents (live and taped) has also been covered, but is a question still if they will do the same this season

Though the European and World Championships are broadcasted in the Russia2 channel and Eurosport, so it will be most likely the same as each year

The best of this is that all those channels are carried with TVTeka (NTV Plus, Eurosport and Russia2)

Junior Worlds is other issue as it has not been the case that the tv stations had commited to show the competition (Eurosport only did it once two seasons ago)

Well, so far TVTEKA has been a bust.

Even though I received a receipt for my payment, I could not log on to TVTeka as they said they didn't recognize my email address.

So I have been unable to view the JGPF.

Now what?

12-09-2010, 04:10 PM
I did not hear about a problem like that before, but you will have to contact their costumer service e-mail, sorry about that euterpe!

Did you register with the same email address you use for you Paypal account? In the Paypal option it was mentioned that your email had to match the one used for paypal. Could that be the reason? I don't know, I'm just guessing here.

I signed up yesterday for the free trial, but about half an hour before the competition, I still hadn't received word, so I paid for a one month subscription. I was able to instantly watch all channels, and I received a confirmation email immediately.

I did have a problem logging in at first, though. I had opened multiple tabs (using IE 8) because I needed google's translator. Once I got the email that I was paid for a month, I cleared my cache and dumped all the cookies. Closed out of IE. When I re-opened IE and went to the site, I was able to log on without any problem.

ETA: I did not see a Paypal option, so I used my Visa.

I received confirmation emails at the same email address with which I registered, from TVTeka support, and also from the parent company, with a receipt for payment. I sent email describing the problem, attaching files showing the payment, but have not received any reply.

12-10-2010, 03:34 PM
It works fine for me, I dont mind the delay.

if the ntv plus sport channel is still listed by time of russian nationals it surely will be broadcasted then
