    Are there any TV networks, accessible online, that will be broadcasting Junior Worlds?

    After some PITA searching and Google translating on the Bulgarian National Television site http://www.bnt.bg I came up with these on the channel BNT2.

    Thursday 13th

    20.00 - 22.05 - pairs free

    Friday 14th

    20.00 - 22.10 dance free

    Saturday 15th

    14.30 - 16.55 men free

    Sunday 16th

    12.15 - 14.45 ladies free
    16.15 - 18.00 gala

    Now we need to find a link for this BNT2 channel. :drama:

    Thanks for your search Hanna, you've found more than I managed to.

    Damn so it seems there'll be no decent coverage. Eurosport is not bothering to show this on Eurosport Player even though they have the rights, same goes for some other TV networks I guess. And because rights are sold, ISU will not show it on YouTube or their channel... :wall:

    The ISU will broadcast it on ISU TV, with the regular geobolck restrictions.
    The problem is, I'm in Brazil, it's not on the geoblock list, but the video won't play due to geographical restrictions :mad:

    I've just spent 5 bucks on a Smart DNS service that is supposed to un-geoblock everything for me. It's not working and I have used it in the past and it was reliable. Given beepbeep can't watch it in Brazil anyway, maybe everybody is geo-blocked? :p

    According to the ISU the restrictions are Canada, USA, Europe, Japan and Korea. Every other country should be fine, so no idea what's up with Brazil. :(

    Australia is working. :sekret:

    I tried all countries from the hola unblocker (which is free) list, and they were all blocked at the time.
    (a lot of people complained on the ISU facebook page about it...)

    Aaaannd it's fixed now! :) :cheer:

    ETA: Just noticed your posts. Great to hear it's fixed now. Not working for me so I guess the SmartDNS I got is not working. I'll try the Hola Unblocker.

    ETA2: Hola! is working for me as well. :)
