Does anyone know if there will be any NBC broadcast of Worlds this year? Sorry if this is a facile question, but I'm trying to figure out whether to buy an IN subscription for Worlds or not .. Thx for any info.

I saw an advertisement during NBC's U.S. Nationals coverage for a Worlds broadcast on NBC - it will be a taped highlights show, shown one week after Worlds, like last year. Someone posted in the Worlds forum in Kiss and Cry that it will be 2 hours on March 24.

Due to Universal Sports holding the live or first broadcast TV & streaming rights, IceNetwork will only have Worlds videos on demand - available on Sunday, March 24: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20130207&content_id=41468336&vkey=ice_news

Universal Sports' TV schedule for Worlds isn't posted online yet, last I checked.

ETA: Fortunately, this will be the last year that Universal Sports will control the live streaming rights - see this GSD thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?86736-USFS-announces-TV-broadcast-extension-with-NBC-amp-ISU-media-rights-thru-2017-18

Neither Universal Sports nor NBC have schedules for the week of Worlds up yet. Will post as soon as I see something, although Hisweirness will probably beat me to it.

Still no schedule from NBC or Universal Sports. NBC has their general schedule posted for up to March 17th so either they are not planning anything until later or they haven't finalized their plans, or they are not planning to broadcast worlds. Universal sports has some live events post for April but nothing so far for skating and worlds.

They aren't planning to show Worlds until March 24th. That was posted somewhere else.

Certainly possible with NBC. However. Universal Sports should be streaming live. "Should," being the operative word.

Saturday, March 23rd is the date of NBC's highlights show the week after Worlds - here's the promo: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Vu6vsw7-rFQ

Doesn't Universal Sports' figure skating schedules usually turn up online pretty close to the event? Patience! :)

I'm just frustrated because Universal already has live streaming for running events on March 17th and April 15th listed. I wish they could be a bit more organized with skating.

I find Univer$al Sports to be totally contemptuous, and am THRILLED that IceNetwork has gotten the rights to show these important international events. I just hope that this was due to an uproar on the part of u.s. fingure skating fans everywhere. Allowing a 75 SECOND preview of anything is pretty much USELESS. AND they didn't even offer a subscription for those cable systems that won't bend to their overvalued co$t plan. When cable system$ and broadca$t entitie$ di$agree, the viewer pay$ the ultimate price.

I think all U.$. tv viewers should write to the FCC and make this type of mega-entitie$ stop their childi$h bickering and make their "users", the VIEWER their main concern. Without VIEWERS there are no broadcast entities and no need for cable systems!

Totally contemptuous?

Actually, considering the MAJOR (yes I mean to be shouting) problems I had with IceNetwork several years ago (and 2 months to get my $$ back from them - long story), I sure hope they've gotten their act together if I'm going to be stuck with them next season. Other than a few minor freezes with Universal Sports, I have had no problem with them.

But is sucks for people who can't get Universal Sports. At least Ice Network is available to anyone who wants to pay for it. And I've had very few problems with IN. A freeze here and there but it seems so get better each year.

Sassafras, how are you able to watch Universal Sports online? Does your cable/satelite company carry them? If so, then why are you not watching things that way.

Don't get me wrong, IceNetwork can be TOTALLY exhasperating at times. And, on principle alone, I do not like to pay for internet feeds. But like many of us, I was between a rock and a virtual space, with figure skating events going on without my ability to see them, read about them or even watch the standings update live. I do hope that next year will be much better, but, I am willing to crawl, in order to walk.

Universal offers both online streaming and TV coverage. The online streaming is usually live while TV coverage is often delayed. Also, the streaming coverage is usually longer.

Here is the Universal Sports schedule. http://universalsports.com/2013/02/28/2013-world-figure-skating-championships-viewers-guide/

Here's the NBC schedule

Damnit why can't Universal Sport sell Worlds streaming in some kind of pay-per-view arrangement?

At this stage it looks like there's no way of actually watching Worlds live this year. :(
