    As far as I know, Eurosport has the broadcasting rights for the Grand Prix series till the end of the next season.

    They won't be sending me details directly just to check the TV guide nearer the time.
    Remember last year we had this great GP coverage then we were let down with crap Euros ?:rolleyes:

    Wooooo, thank you! :) I've been checking the website but not seen anything yet.

    I just hope the coverage of Euros and Worlds is better than last year's. Showing only top 3 LPs in the Worlds Mens event was terrible :(

    Thank you! I already was disappointed when I looked at the TV programme and couldn't find the Grand Prix anywhere, but now I am relieved.

    Schedule for Eurosport (International), for Sunday 21 will show a 2 hour highlights at 18:00 (Central European) and the Ladies Free Skate (LIVE) from 22:15 to midnight (CET)

    Schedule for Eurosport France shows they will have both the Free Dance and Ladies Free Skate LIVE starting at 20:45 CET

    Hope they can show more with Skate Canada and the rest of the events

    According to the dutch Eurosport monthly newsletter Eurosport will show a lot from the Grand Prix series. Although they won't show a lot from Skate America. This is the figure skating schedule from oct 27 (Skate Canada) for example: http://www.eurosportlights.nl/index.php?id=2&viewdate=2012-10-27&time=&sport=KUNSTSCHAATSEN They will show pairs short, pairs free (live), ladies free, short dance and free dance (live) on eurosport and men's short on eurosport 2 on October 27. You can find the schedule for the other Grand Prix events by clicking on 'vorige week or volgende week (previous or next week)'

    For us getting British Eurosport we get HUGE coverage of tennis, snooker, cricket & football but skating gets pushed into tiny slots.
    At the Europeans & Worlds this year International Eurosport got everything & British Eurosport got very little.
    Totally unfair.

    I am not sure how it works in Europe, but Eurosport has got an online Eurosport Player streaming, and there was at least the option of choosing the country, e.g. living in Russia I could watch British or German Eurosport.

    There is one major problem - the streaming is without archive there. That is you can watch it only when it is being shown.

    But again, I am not sure how it works in Europe, so you'd rather check it for yourselves :)

    Skate America and most likely all the Grand Prix will be broadcasted live again by russian channel Cnopt (sport) that last season was called ' Cnopt 2'

    This channel can be seen through Tvteka

    www.tvteka.com

    You can have a 3 day trial period or just pay 12 dollars per 30 days (paying by credit/debit or paypal)

    There you can select the channel that has the logo named under 'Cnopt 2' and that will have the skating coverage.

    You can also watch it later on demand.

    Using the google translate option you will be fine browsing the site.

    It is also this season called "спорт 2". "Спорт" is an other channel of NTV+, and is not showing Grand Prix.

    TVteka is showing "спорт 2". Schedule for Skate America is Here

    Just to clear it, when you click on the Tvteka channel list there is a logo that looks with´cnopt 2´ but once the channel starts playing, it displays a logo on the upper right corner saying ´cnopt´so...

    NTV Plus Cnopt is ANOTHER channel, that used to show the skating but it has not the rights since last season.

    I am not sure whether this has already been posted or not, but just in case, here's a good table for most of the Skate America tv coverage in Europe:

    http://www.artonice.it/?q=en/event/2012/10/20

    As far as Western Europe is concerned, and as far as I know, this is pretty exhaustive

    THe good news is yay GP coverage on Eurosport. The bad news: it's Nicky slater commentating and butchering even the most well known skater's names.

    Takahiki Kozuko? Victoria Hegleson. Those are two that I remember, he did at least two others that had me rolling my eyes.

    But still thankful for Eurosport coverage.

    Eurosports coverage Monday was kinda strange. They started their coverage at 6.00am yet started 30 mins earlier. Then spent 20 mins on the medal ceremony for the men's & pairs yet showed no ice dance.
    Then when they repeated it later in the afternoon they only showed six of the ten ladies & then repeated the medal ceremony again !. Not many people were up at 6.00am to watch the ladies. I almost missed it coz they started earlier than scheduled.
    Who runs Eurosport ?. Do they ever think of what their viewers want ?. I think I know this one..............................................
