    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.
