Good news is that ISU is web broadcasting in HD all Worlds events from Moscow for moderate price of $10. Now the bad news is that it does not work for my country even though the broadcaster is Eurovision.
The link is posted on main ISU website.

Does everyone else have the same problem? I can't find any information on which countries this broadcast is for.

I better move to Afganistan.
Seriously though, how come I am subjected to situation when I am restricted from watching the competition because someone bought it and then refuse to show.
There must be some law prohibitng that? I am thinking seriously about filing formal complaint.

Ummm those of us in countries who don't have host broadcasters have had to go through that for years and haven't had access to services in the US and Canada because we are blocked.

Nice to know that figure skating fans from Western Sahara can watch World Champs :P

Well, personally I'm thrilled, as this basically means I'll be able to watch Worlds, which otherwise would not have been the case. $10US is a very reasonable price, particularly as the Aussie dollar is currently stronger!

I'm sorry for those in countries who can't access this service due to prior purchase by a broadcaster, but for those of us in countries that don't normally get ANY coverage (or not since the early 90s, when all we got was a one hour highlights programme several months after the event), this is very good news.

Hmmm I think it is what it was called after Loompa land got taken over by the Imperial forces so the Death Star could be rebuilt. I have heard it has a fantastic canteen.

I've tested it and it works for me, it looks great, no annoying commentator :cool: But my internet connexion is crap :shuffle: Is there a way to watch it without the HD?

You could always try to get an ip blocker to trick the Internet into thinking you were from one of those countries...
