    This is awesome news. Now can some kind soul post the times of the events? I haven't been paying attention because I didn't think we would be able to watch live. Thanks!

    It did not appear to be geo-blocked when I checked out the link yesterday.

    It states will only be blocked in Japan and Korea, so everybody else should be able to watch it

    Will the ISU archive it so the coverage may be watched on demand?

    Great news. It sounds like the ISU are really wanting to promote the coverage of this which is a very positive step.

    Thank you very much Braulio.

    Damnit, the live events are during the only few hours in the day when I am unable to watch them. :drama:

    Fear not - the ISU has indicated (on Facebook) that the video will be archived on their channel at the end of each day's competition.

    They posted it as a reply to a question posed on the Skate Canada Facebook page in response to the Skate Canada post about the specific times the Canadian skaters would compete on Thursday. [It's currently on the right hand side of the timeline.]

    They also posted it as a reply to a question posed on their own ISU Figure Skating Facebook page beneath the announcement of the free stream.

    Is there anyway to watch on-demand?

    ETA: Oh, just saw that you click "More Channels" on top, you can get all the videos on demand. :)

    Thanks to the ISU for doing this.
    I hope they will make other events available, without geo-blocking, in the future.

    This was a really good stream. High quality and relatively few glitches. Bravo, ISU!
