    I can't figure it out. All I get is news . When I click Cnopt2 I get a screen with 3 rectangles, and when I click on the left I just get news. What am I doing wrong?

    Look to the right of the TV screen for the schedule. If you click the link next to "22:05," you'll get a replay of the Ladies SP. If you click the link next to "24:35," you'll get the Pairs SP live (currently the end of the Group 1 warmup).

    How did you get to the right channel? I didn't see Cnopt2, only Cnopt. When I clicked on Cnopt I didn't see 22:05 anywhere. (In fact I didn't see that time on any channel)

    eta;Never mind. I figured it out

    Posted in the Skate Canada TV/Streams thread. I've haven't tested it yet...

    Just finished watchting Cnopt 2 (TVTeka) replays of Skate Canada Ladies SP and Pairs SP. Besides the buffering sometimes preventing me from seeing a jump/throw it was great and I really liked that I could watch the archived streams right away when I got home from work instead of waiting hours for them to be posted (a la icenetwork.com). :D

    On TVTeka, to watch what is live, you need to click on the grey oval button that says Прямой эфир. It's to the upper right of the video stream ;)

    I'm not sure how to do the 3 day trial but I believe that you have to apply for it a day in advance. So if you did that today you wouldn't be able to watch until tomorrow.

    while your mileage may very, i feel I must share that TVTeka has not been the best stream for me and hardly worth the $12. It buffers constantly for me. I have high-speed internet and have no other issues with other streaming video, including Ice Network. Just something to consider.

    Totally agree, WEBtv is far superior for Russian channels, it doesnt buffer and all the progs are archived automatically.

    Something I discovered during Skate Canada is that Universal Sports posted videos on Youtube just a few hours after the skaters skated. So I watched lots of good quality videos pretty much the same day. I just searched on Youtube "2012 Skate Canada Universal Sports." Not exactly live streaming, but not too bad considering that I'd have to wait seven days for the IceNetwork coverage and the other feeds were of bad quality.

    A word warning: my credit card data has been stolen after paying TV Teka online 2 weeks ago... Within one week after using their website, someone attempted twice to pay goods using my credit card for thousands of Euros...

    TV Teka has worked well for me last year but this year it's sadly been awful so far. Frequent signal loss. :(

    Could you share the link please? I haven't used it in years and don't have it bookmarked anywhere any more.

    Would it still be the Sport 2 coverage on WebTV?

    WebTV doesn't have Sport 2. We used it when it was on NTV plus sport but they don't seem to have skating anymore.

    For me it buffers for about 15 seconds every 5 minutes or so. Is that the same for others?

    I just realized that Finnish YLE is broadcasting the whole GP series live online for free AND without commentary, but it's naturally geoblocked. (They broadcasted Euros and Worlds last year too, so completely :cheer: coverage for figure skating friends in Finland nowadays). If you can get a Finnish IP, it should work. Here's the link. http://areena.yle.fi/tv/1726541

    I got a message about Microsoft Silverlight starting up. So I think the stream is using Silverlight. I am on a Mac.

    Does TV Teka archive the GP events anywhere for watching later?

    I have Teka up and running but I can't find Figure Skating. The channels mentioned in previous post seem to be running football etc. Am I doing somthing wrong?

    Not sure how back you go but you can use the bar at the right of the screen to see things from earlier that day at least.

    The channel is спорт2. Then click the grey button to the top right of the screen to make sure its live.

    His Weirness, thank you for all the helpful information you always provide us.

    Many mac people have problems downloading Silverlight (usually after the download is done), which has made me reluctant to try downloading. I guess you had no problems????

    Year or two. (ETA: a lot more) They still have Vancouver OG archived.

    You can e.g. write where it is written "поиск" "фигурное катание" (you can copy/paste that) and then click найти and you get (today) 564 programs having figure skating.

    If you write "фигурное катание Гран-При" (figure skating GP) you get 346 program. I am not sure, if they all work, but I just tested and watched a bit of B/A original dance from CoR 2003 and it worked.

    Does anyone have the TEB schedule for TVTEKA? They seem to have switched to other sports after the pairs.
