    And 3hrs of Men's short on the Wednesday Live from 11pm (although i'm sure that wasn't showing up yesterday when I checked so maybe it's still under review/subject to change...) Good thing I didn't get a chance to cancel my day off on the Thursday today, which I planned to do since it looked like there was no coverage Wednesday night/Thursday day time...

    I just checked and this is what I see at 6:55p E (-5):

    w 3/13 23:00 Live Men's Short

    f 3/15 00:00 Live Short Dance
    17:30 Live Pairs Free
    19:00 Women's Short
    23:30 Live Men's Free

    This is as much as they show, and we all know there are events scheduled for Saturday. So, there is hope, I think.


    But, back to the DUNCE questions... What time zone are these times? I never did figure this out for 4CCs, so I want to miss anything this time around. Please open my eyes to the obvious

    According to their schedule today, they'll be showing 150 minutes of the ladies' short from 7pm GMT on Friday as momnatur notes. Not live, but a lot better than the coverage of Europeans.

    What website are you looking at? Your schedule appears to be the same as I can currently see on the Eurosport UK website (except I also have 23.00 14/03 ES2 Women's Short) schedule so I'd assume these are UK times which will be GMT when Worlds happens. If you are on one of the other Eurosport websites, I assume most of those would have CET schedules.

    here is the link I got the schedule from. I followed something that someone else posted somewhere on FS Universe.

    http://tv.eurosport.co.uk/search.shtml?query=Figure

    And I do believe that it is the UK site, so I will trust that it is GMT. But, that was what I was using for 4CCs and every time I went there when I thought it was the right time, I found international football ("soccer" to us yanks.) And _that_ is when I got really confused. I think I only hit skating twice all weekend. Believe me, I was VERY bummed.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Free Dance just posted a bit ago... NOT LIVE.... 3/17 22:00 Free Dance


    BUT.... they show the Women's Free *LIVE* TWICE
    3/16 @ 23:30
    AND
    3/17 @ 2:00
    that can't be right.
    That is, if both are Women's Free, both telecasts can't be live.

    Looking at the individual ticket purchase page for Budweiser Gardens (the venue) - Eastern DAYLIGHT SAVINGS Time (UTC -4) which starts 3/10 @ 2:00 Eastern...
    3/16 @ 14:30 - Ice Dance Free
    3/16 @ 19:00 - Women's Free.

    Which means the Free Dance is being held before the Women's free. Could the first showing be the Free Dance?

    So, now we are back to my original DUNCE QUESTION...
    If the Free Dance starts at 14:30 EDT which is 18:30 UTC and coverage is supposed to start at 23:30.....

    Does this mean that EuroSport will NOT be showing the entire event
    OR
    does it mean that I have the wrong time zone???? If, as I suspect, I have the wrong time zone, what time zone are these showings listed in?
    OR
    could it be that what is listed as LIVE really isn't?????

    Why do I ask? Because I just did the math on the Women's free.
    Ticket time is shown as 3/16 @ 19:00. If you add the 4 hours for UTC 23:00 which is exactly when Eurosport 1 is showing the Women's Free Live. So, I'm back to not knowing anything again.

    BTW, I am looking at EuroSport UK. London, England doesn't observe Daylight Savings time until March 31, so that wouldn't affect the 4 hour offset (London, OT, CA will be UTC -4 as of 3/10.)

    Thanks again. You folks are great!

    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!

    I think all it means is that the live coverage of the women's free starts at 23.30 GMT on Saturday night and by 02.00 on Sunday morning (i.e. two hours after midnight), it's still going. So despite it being listed twice on two separate days, it's actually one continuous live broadcast. I'd guess from this information that they're showing all or most of the ladies' free, or it wouldn't go on so long. Does this make sense? :)

    Well I can't add much to my previous post - i'm in the UK and use the site and notwithstanding their tendancy for last minute schedule changes and "bumping" skating for over-running tennis... snooker... footbal... [insert any other sport here] the schedule is in GMT. What is strange is that at the moment I can't see anything past about 3am on the schedule for 17th March on the UK site (I wouldn't expect to be able to until sometime in the early hours of tomorrow morning)... So the fact that you can suggests we are looking at different things. This is the website for British Eurosport: http://tv.eurosport.co.uk/ that I use. Is that what you're looking at?

    Melia,

    first off thanks for offering your help. I'm sorry to say that your previous post doesn't make sense to me. But you also mention that this site has a propensity for doing wierd things. So, I will chalk it up to the wierdness you've described. But I have to say that I have NEVER heard of anything like that being done with a schedule. But, because of how EuroSport posts things, I could see why that might be. 180min on 3/16 and 60min on 3/17....

    And, yes, we were looking at different pages because I was looking at a search on figure skating.... url http://tv.eurosport.co.uk/search.shtml?query=Figure. I think I picked figure skating from the "sport" menu.

    I'm just glad that I will have the opportunity to see these things without having to wait a WEEK.

    Which bit didn't make sense? The Eurosport UK schedule is in GMT (the time zone for the country it relates on the dates of the broadcasts). Eurosport sometimes let other sports run over into FS time so we see less (and I've known stuff to start a bit early on occasion too).

    You addressed the second part of the post already.

    It didn't seem confusing to me when I was typing, but I guess my last post didn't communicate what I intended it to. Sorry :lol: Agreed the only thing I couldn't see on the schedule was Pairs Short (and the main schedule hadn't updated Sunday when I looked last night so I couldn't see the FD and Gala).

    I can see the schedule for Sunday now and that shows FD at 22.00 followed by Gala.

    If it wasn't Ladies I'd be jealous!

    Are you sure? Broadcast starts at 11pm on the Saturday and then continues at 2am on the Sunday morning. The schedule shows it all being LF. If the second part was FD then it wouldn't be live? Are we still on British Eurosport?

    Mella, I am only talking about British Eurosport. International Eurosport usually follows the schedule for the rest of the European nations I belive, i.e German Russian French eurosp generally have the same schedule in the main.

    EDITED to say Mella you are right, my calculations were wrong as Ontario is only 5hrs behind GMT and 6 the rest of Europe, so my original post is incorrect!

    French eurosport which goes its on way quite a lot, has the Free Dance live, actually starting 30mins before the event starts lol..Brit Euros has ski jumping scheduled then.
    French Eurosp also has the Pairs free in its entirety.

    Careful though as what they have scheduled is not always what you get. There were a few occasions when the start was delayed or the schedule was changed without notice....

    OH, as if things weren't complicated enough, Canada and the United States starts Daylight Savings time on March 10th. This is when the time differential FOUR hours instead of five. And UK goes Daylight Savings time March 31. This is why, in my posts above, I took out GMT for the more Universal Time (UTC.)
