Well what are they?

If you know of any way of watching Euros online, please share it and I will add all information to this post, so we have it all in one place, for easy reference.

If you already know the schedule for particular TV channels, please post it here as well.

US - IceNetwork (http://web.icenetwork.com/events/schedule.jsp) is not showing Euros online because they didn't manage to strike a deal with whoever has the tv rights.

Sweden - SVT (http://svtplay.se/) should have excellent full online coverage, as usual. It's geo-blocked though.

Worldwide - There's a number of online services, offering the option to watch Russian tv channels online. They usually have very good coverage.

I have used them all and the best one, by far, IMO is .

There's also [url=http://www.rutelevision.com/index-en.asp]RUTelevision (http://tvteka.com/TVTEKA[/url) and some other ones, I don't remember now.

TRT-3 (http://www.trt.net.tr/Canli/canli.aspx?kanal=TV3&slv=0) (a Turkish channel) usually has very good live figure skating coverage, however the free video stream sometimes fails when hordes of figure skating fans overload it. ;P

CCTV (Chinese state tv) often shows figure skating and streams can be found on various free streaming websites but the quality isn't great and their coverage usually isn't complete.

Eurosport Player (http://www.eurosportplayer.pl/) is cheap and will enable you to watch Eurosport online, however it might be geo-blocked to Europe and the quality of service is very poor with a high failure rate. I would advise against it.

Friday
Ladies SP 14:00-17:15
Ice Dance FD 19:30-22:15

Saturday
Ladies LP 19:30-22:30


and this is what other countries get from Eurosport.....:mad:

Friday
Ice Dance FD 22:00-23.25

Saturday
Men LP 15:45-17.00

Uhmm yes, Euros 2012 of course. :o

If some kind admin could correct that, I'd be very grateful.

And yes, Eurosport schedule does vary from one country to another. Thanks for posting that schedule Malgosia.

They've never shown as little as this. :( :mad:

Don't think so, since SVT has no TV broadcasts at all this year, I fear they won't send anything online at all as well.:(:(:(

Russia 2 will broadcast everything live, except the menīs free skate and will chack most likely the first two groups of the ladies free skate

This channel can be watched via tvteka or webtv

dont forget for those outside Europe, Canada, USA or Japan, you can purchase (with paypal) the Live and On Demand coverage at the ISU PPV Site

the issue is that if eurosport doesnt show anything then no matter if there are tons and tons of links, we will get what they have on the tv schedule and thus far the coverage is very poor

Ok, so so far we've got two decent options:

Estonian TV shows everything live and let's pray it won't be geo-blocked.

Russia 2 will show almost everything live (and is available on webtv, tvteka and rutelevision).

Sport 2 is also showing Ladies and Men FS live full versions on January 28. All the other events will be taped.

Unfortunately TV4 bought the rights in Sweden, and they're doing a shitty job showing almost nothing online (I heard rumours they might show the gala online, but haven't found anything on their TV4Play site) and only showing men and ladies on TV4 Sport (a channel I noticed I actually have, who knew?) and Sjuan, going as far as cutting up the gala to only show men + ladies. :confused: I read somewhere they might show the highlights of the pairs FP and the FD during the zamboni breaks, but who knows. The only good thing about this coverage is that Filip Stiller will be the commentator.

Times in CET:

TV4 sport/Sjuan:
26/1: 14:00-18:20 men sp
27/1: 14-17:30 ladies sp
17.30-18.15 ladies sp (Sjuan).

28/1: 13:55 - 17 men fp
18:30-22:30 ladies sp
19-20 men + ladies gala exh bits

TV Finland shows a little bit too:
26/1: 15-16 men sp
21-22:30 pairs fp

27/1: 15:10-16 & 17:30-18:20 ladies sp
21:05-22:30 FD

28/1: 15:20-17:15 men fp
21:25-22:25 ladies fp

29/1: 15:25-17:15 gala exh

So I'm not asking a kind admin to update the OP because I'm lazy. But because there just sadly isn't much choice out there. :(

If you live in Estonia, ETV2 will be streaming everything other than the Preliminary Rounds: http://otse.err.ee/etv2/

If you live in Finland, YLE streams everything live: http://areena.yle.fi/live

For those living in Canada, South America, Africa and some Asian countries (a full list doesn't exist, you need to check yourself whether you can watch it from your location), you can get access via the ISU Channel for $18.50:
http://livemanager.eurovision.edgesuite.net/isu/pay/index.html

Worldwide, you can get access to Russia 2 (which will show most of the events live) through TVTeka: http://tvteka.com/
