    I guess we'll have to look for online streams, just like last season.

    Two years ago Eurosport broadcast the ISU Grand Prix.

    Since then - forget it. I am very disappointed.

    Does anybody know why Eurosport has chosen not to broadcast the Grand Prix this season? Too few viewers? The ISU demanding too much money? If so, what was the reasoning to do it back in 2008-09?

    I looked at the Eurosport TV schedule, and they almost never show anything live, so I suppose they could make room for it. It is really a shame, because in countries like Denmark, Eurosport is the only opportunity to watch figure skating - unless you're like me and find obscure streams on the internet, but "normal" people don't do that.

    They will continue to broadcast Europeans and Worlds, right? Though probably very limited :revenge:

    The problem with Euros is the Australian Open Tennis is also on at that time. I apologise in advance to my European friends.

    Thank you :lol: I cannot repeat the cusses in my house when the tennis players just do not understand that they have to hurry up and finish their matches so the skating doesn't get dumped :drama:

    Hey if we get the same rain during the Australian Open that we are getting now, then it might mean more skating is shown on Eurosport.

    Oh wait two of the courts have roofs.

    I got the program from eurosport per mail in december, according to this schedule, the pairs SP should have start at 19:30 (CET) but now they have changed it to 20:10, because of 10 minutes of taped sailing and golf!!!
    Why Eurosport?? :(

    ^ The Pairs SP schedule changed because there are fewer entries now. The competition is not scheduled to start until 19:45 now.

    after last year's disaster on Eurosport, this time I'm positively surprised :). they managed to squeeze in most of the events despite Australian Open. yay!
    I hope it won't change much! I console myself that the programmes preceding figure skating are not live, mostly recaps...

    Joanne Conway really irritated me when they had her in the studio for 2005 Worlds! She wouldn't stop bleating on about how it was some kind of foregone conclusion for Irina to beat Sasha - even after the LP, when Irina had given the performance of her life with a 3-3 and Sasha had made a mistake. Preferring Sasha's style is one thing, but for heaven's sake, credit where credit's due - Irina totally deserved the gold.

    Rant over :D

    Looks like a decent schedule for Euros this year! :cheer:

    I know it's too early to know for sure - just wondered if they were likely to be showing it live as I will be travelling at least one day that week and want to know what sort of time to try and avoid! :(

    Japan is 9 hours ahead of Ireland and the UK so any live broadcast will start at about 9am for an evening session in Tokyo. As far as I recall we got the earlier session of the day on tape delay after the live final.
