    Hmmmm....this doesn't say which events will go to IN and which to Universal sports or whether access to US will still be only to DirectTV or Dishnetwork's through their extra sport's package. I'd like to drop that $15/month fee. I guess we have to wait till summer to see who has rights to what.

    I think that means IceNetwork gets all of them...I hope it does anyway! I do get sick of tracking down grainy feeds from Eurosport, LaRisvera and other sites.

    I'm sure this has to do with the whole "Sochi 2014" campaign thingy they're doing. How do you expect to generate interest for the sport if you can't watch it while it's on? If only it were free...then they'd be onto something...

    So does this mean more crappolla TV coverage by NBC, starring Hamilton & Bezik (with occasional relief by Andrea Joyce)? Arrrgh!!!!
