Thank you. I will try that because Eurosport is quite limited.
Thank you Dinakt -- I have Sport but do not see anything like Worlds listed. : ( : ( Google translating like mad...
I am also frantically looking for the live skating through the TVTeka website. Got the free trial, and now I can't find the right button. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
From the 2013 Worlds forum:
Ok, found this other link which works-- THANKS suzieb129!! So much for downloading all that stuff on my computer.
If there is anyone who can get German channel ARD they are showing highlights of the pairs short tomorrow during the other winter sports coverage through the day.
Also, if you have a freeview box then the red button channel (UK only) has all four free skates at the weekend.
Hope this helps.
You still have to do your bit & let the ISU know how it is harming such a great sport. Less coverage = Less people watching = Less people skating. Also, Eurosport coverage this season has been weird. Fantastic coverage of the Grand Prix Events, Junior Worlds & The 4CC's BUT the two BIG events the Euro's & World's get treated like this. Why ?!
THANK YOU!!!! I missed half the comp but I have it now. Thank you!!!!
Let me know if you geta response from the ISU, I bet you don't, but if you do, i'm happy to add my voice, but for now I think it's a waste of time.
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
These people buy up the sporting rights from sports governing bodies http://www3.ebu.ch/cms/en/services/sports/rights
I know it's sooo disappointing.
Don't worry I'm sure BES will maybe kindly show the top three ladies in between
the SD groups at midnight
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.
I've just checked and YES Ladies is on at Six o'clock today till eight
Eurosport can't make it's mind up .
Thanks for the info. Are Eurosport about to do something right for once
Eurosport just started, showing YuNa Kim http://188.8.131.52/w00t/20130313/vv5140c10ce98d7055616335-541874.html
YES , Ladies Sp is now on British Eurosport !
Don't forget that the BBC Red Button has full coverage live of both the pairs free & Men's free today !
Whooo BBC.Definately not staying up for the mens will watch tomorrow on tape as mens is my least favourite
Plus staying up for the SD is catching up with me now I'm usually in bed before 11
And now we have to stay up until three in the morning for the ladies free !. I'll be dead by midnight !.
Anyone watching Eurosport getting dodgy sound ?. Kinda bumpy. I don't have HD, it's just the standard.
Are BBC showing FD red button today ?ES showing it Sunday morning
If not I'll have to watch the Latvian link .
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.
It's scheduled for 19.30
Only 1 hour for the Gala on Eurosport tonight. Sad.
I don't know about you but my brain is skated out I'm not too bothered as we've seen all the programmes they'll be doing before anyway Hallelluyah Fade into you Mary Poppins etc
Hasn't it been great though ?
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.
