    It's so unfair that British Eurosport are showing tennis from 4 until midnight (Some not even live) yet other Eurosport channels are showing the Women's short. Why do the viewers in the UK get so little ?.

    Oh yeah, I know they've already been paid and have sold the rights. I have just complained that Eurosport uses skating as a 'filler' sport between tennis/football/snooker and that although they have the rights to show skating, that means they have also the rights not to show it which is frustrating and annoying. I wrote that I would be happy to pay for the ISU channel if they cared to broadcast until Eurosport actually went live. I have not as yet had a reply. Surprise :lol:

    These people buy up the sporting rights from sports governing bodies http://www3.ebu.ch/cms/en/services/sports/rights

    Highlights of the ladies short are still scheduled for Friday evening after the pairs free. I'm so hoping this does not get nixed for yet MORE TENNIS.

    Anyone watching Eurosport getting dodgy sound ?. Kinda bumpy. I don't have HD, it's just the standard.

    Check the red button just before 20.50 for the Free Dance & then the ladies straight after. The BBC are showing the free dance online live (I think). I will check.

    BES just add insult to injury. FD scheduled for 10pm tonight. What do we have? Unscheduled cycling fluff and no actually reschedule showing on the programming. ES HD shows a reschedule to 2235 then 2250. Skating then starts at 2230 so I have plenty of messed I recording. Grrrrrr!!!! Started with group two so I assume the following Gala programming will be delayed and then cut short or the following programming extended.

    My last ES rant of the seaon - My mother will be relieved not to have to hear this again for a few months!

    Yep, my family are thrilled the skating season is over so they can have their tv back !. Eurosport don't have a clue how to treat their viewers but I kinda knew it would be like this. I guess we should be grateful we got as much as we did.
    Also, nuge I know how you feel. By 12.30 last night I just wanted to see Yuna skate & then go to bed. I was past it. Great season though. I hope we get as much of the grand prix series later this year what with it being the Olympic season.
