    Right now I only see the listings for Eurosport coverage on the NTV Plus site:
    http://www.ntvplus.ru/tv/search.xl?search=Skate

    This week is very busy for me (going to Europe Friday) so any help with the TV schedules is very appreciated. :D

    Well, half of the listings you cited include 2005 Skate America :)
    Grand Prix events will be broadcast in Russia by Eurosport and Eurosport 2 this year, and not always live.

    NTV plus is not broadcasting the event this time.

    So no Skate America or other G-P eents on Universal Sports this year other than possible reshowings of the NBCs? That stinks. I was counting on UnivSports to see short programs and be able to DVR.

    That is bad news. :(
    Just Skate America or all of the GP circuit? They are always very reliable in showing most everything live.
    Eurosport is not nearly as good this year...

    They are not showing all of the GP circuit:(
    I guess they lost interest in showing GP events, there were some talks about this last season.

    Sun 10/23 4:30 PM 7:30 PM Pairs FS and Ladies FS
    Tue 10/25 6:00 PM 9:00 PM FD and Men's FS (or NBC Repeat)
    Tue 10/25 11:00 P 2:00 AM Pairs FS and Ladies FS (Repeat)
    Wed 10/26 3:00 PM 6:00 PM FD and Men's FS (Repeat)

    Fri 10/28 1:00 AM 4:00 AM Pairs FS and Ladies FS (Repeat)

    This link also brings up Skate Canada broadcasts:

    It seems that Universal Sports will not be streaming Skate America- the coverage says "TV only"

    They had to just change that. I was ready to buy coverage the day of instead of early and even though I am going to buy coverage anyway part of the reason was originally Skate America. They had a schedule and everything.

    I'm at least looking forward to the NBC coverage. I also renewed my subscription to the IceNetwork coverage. The only regret is that I can't tape anything this season until I'm back home. Thanks for all the information everyone.

    I didn't find anything on their website in the Program Guide for Skate America:(
    My worst guess is that since the rights were sold to Eurosport this season and they are European TV channel, RAI won't show anything too.

    Not NBC. It will be on UnivSports, live at the first airing @ 4:30pm on Sunday, Oct 23.

    That promises to be a doozy of an afternoon...SIX straight hours of Pairs & Ladies coverage on UnivSports, beginning with taped coverage of the earlier Prs/Ladies SPs from 1:30-4:30pm, then the LIVE coverage of Prs/Ladies finals from 4:30-7:30pm EST. Wheeee!!!! :rollin:

    What's not-so-nice is the splitting of the Skate Canada (& certain other GP events) coverage over different weekends, so that, in the US, we will actually DVR some of Cup of China before we can DVR the remainder of coverage of the Skate Canada Ladies finals. grrr...time to juggle the DVD disks to keep coverage of specific competitions together...

    Coverage available in Canada will done by CBC and includes cbcsports.ca (web-streaming), CBC TV (main network), and CBC Bold (digital cable specialty channel).

    The listing below are in Central Daylight Time. Some of these are simulcast across the country so times will be different depending on your time zone, and some are not simulcast so the times will be the same regardless of time zone. As always your best bet is to check your local listings.

    I hope since the Ladies and Pairs is on UnivSports and not NBC that means the Icenetwork will stream it live otherwise i am screwed since i don't get the Universal Sports channel.

    Skate America IS on NBC - Today (Saturday). It's 1:00 PM Mountain Time. I have no idea what time that is in the east as our schedule gets delayed a lot. There is no broadcast listed for tomorrow so I guess men's and dance are only on Universal.

    Better check your local broadcast. My NBC station is only showing 30 minutes of skating and if the football game goes over, they won't even show that. They have other programs in place including another football game.

    That really sucks.

    And I am not too happy with the shenanigans that Ice Network pulled during Meryl and Charlie's program last night, either. I get that they're probably showing part of it on tv today, but to block out the second half with a dumb rugby advertisement? Really? The only reason that I subscribed to them at all this year is because of this competition, and then to go and block out one of the main attractions.... despicable!

    We aren't getting any skating at all- a very important football game between two teeny tiny universities is being shown (the "big" regional game is on right now).

    I had a feeling this would be happening when they released the 'skating on Saturdays' schedule :(

    That's what's happening here as well. I had the same feeling. I don't expect to see any skating on NBC.

    And that wouldn't have been ice networks fault regarding Davis and White. They are only getting the feed from NBC. If you want to blame an entity; blame the correct one. It wasn't IN's doing.
