    Hi all thought I would kick this off with good news from Skatebuzz today

    Skatebuzz live streaming coverage


    Here is an excerpt from the beginning and the schedule from the end of the article -

    I am going to guess this will NOT be geo-blocked since it is not an international ISU event.

    Hi

    Update from south of the border: Radio-Canada.ca transmission works!!!

    Unfortunately, however, everytime I click for live skating, I get a news report about Tunisia. :(

    I'm loving the fact that Josee Chouinard has joined PJ Kwong on Bold. She is definitely getting more comfortable as she goes, and it's just so wonderful to listen to her talk. She has had some different and insightful things to say. I've missed her so much...

    PJ seems very supportive and encouraging, too, which is nice. I like how she is prompting Josee with her thoughts.

    Argh, I'm so pisssed that CBC television practically skipped the Men's SP! :mad: The men's event is generally the favourite figure skating discipine in Canada, so I was very disappointed that we only got Patrick's performance (heck, we didn't even have his K&C!) Considering that the hockey game aftewards was a replay, I thought it was ridiculous and insulting that figure skating didn't receive more coverage.

    Not that I expect that this will make a difference, but I'm planning to write a complaint to the CBC. http://www.cbc.ca/contact/

    Apologizing in advance if I'm posting this in the wrong place but just wondering if there's any way to view Patrick's long program with Kurt and Tracy's commentary? Can only seem to find Youtube video with P.J and Josee...which seems odd.

    The lack of the version with Kurt and Tracy's commentary could possibly be due to technical problems with the broadcast. I know that at FSVids people from several areas of Canada are reporting that there were several glitches, in the HD version at least. Also, the Pj/Josee version is the one most accessible online as it was the one that was streamed live and is the version that is available on CBCsports.ca website.

    Reminder: gala is aired today on CBC at 12pm(ET and Alberta) and 4pm for West(but check your local listings to be sure). It's a one hour coverage so they won't show a lot.
