Unrelated to the current discussion, but I felt compelled to share anyway....

Every time I scan the thread titles for topics I want to click on, this one catches my eye cause my brain does one of those "fill in the blanks" kind of thing, and I read, "ISU Puppy Skating Channel." :lol:

Why doesn't the ISU channel show Preliminary Rounds?

I mean everything gets recorded on the judges' camera anyhow, why not stream it?

Or at least, make it available on YT, like the JGP videos.

Somebody find a contact in the ISU that we can mail/call/whatever to take this issue up.

It's so heartbreaking that nobody will get to see and appreciate the efforts those skaters and no record of their performance will exist anywhere (given video recording in the arena is now allowed). :( :mad:

I will buy the PPV service, and there is a statement on the description of the event that they will start coverage on january 23, dont know if it is for real, but it gives a little hope that the preliminary rounds will get coverage

Well, it seems like ISU made it quite clear at the beginning of the season that they won't be showing any preliminary rounds due to rights restrictions. The rights were sold to different countries in EU, Russia, Asia and America and these rights do include preliminaries. So no way. Except on their paid channel reserved for the countries where Euros and Worlds etc are not usually broadcast.

Let's keep our fingers crossed.

And I will also be praying that somebody records off the ISU PPV channel and posts the videos on FSVids.

Please let us know as soon as you can whether the Preliminary Rounds are going to be shown.

Ziggy I just purchased the PPV stream and it seems they will broadcast the preliminary rounds!

Right now the service says in red that the stream will start in exactly the same amount of time left (12 hours and 45 minute the moment im writing this) for the prelims of the ice dance competition in monday

I am glad that the ISU decided to show the prelims, now its more worth it the cost of the ppv service

No it doesn't, because TV rights have been sold to one of the Japanese broadcasters.

Your broadcaster has bought the rights not to show you Euros. If I were you, I'd set myself on fire outside their headquarters. :P

I did the test and got to see a brief clip of a male skater. Is it possible I am not geo-blocked in Canada? Anybody else from here try it and/or buy it?

I'm in Canada and got a clip too - so it looks as if it'll work in Canada. It's a bit pricey but I don't think I'll be able to resist ...

So, I $18,50 less available for me on my credit card... Didn't resist it.

Decided to try on my Android phone, and it works!!! (on wi-fi, of course)

Maybe they show the event in Japan live on the website of the TV company? They show quite a lot from Europeans in Finland on TV and everything in live streaming from the broadcast company´s website.
