    Something creepy today I noticed: the US re-broadcast of the HD NBC show from this afternoon, was on TAPE, not FILM. Made it look like 1970s archival footage or a Bud Greenspan "16 Days of Glory" documentary. The gymnastics repeats this week also are TAPE. (even though the original and initial repeats were FILM).

    I hate tape!

    PS Did today's FD LIVE coverage go overtime? I decided to record the repeat instead because of the NBC afternoon coverage (I wouldn't be home to change discs and I record in SP), forgetting that something might've gotten chacked TIA.

    Ugh. Missed the broadcast earlier. I checked my Comcast listings and got "TBA" (as usual, ), checked Heather W's schedule which is sadly out of date, and didn't bother to check NBC's because last week it was totally wrong on the times for NHK. That'll teach me to check just Universal Sports' website

    Since it wasn't live, I'm thinking that the broadcast didn't go overtime? And that the repeat will not be editted? I hope so, sure didn't mean to miss it :

    Looking forward to tonight's broadcast, won't miss that!

    I don't know if this has been answered already, but is Universal Sports going to broadcast US Nationals online too? And Four Contients, Euros, and Worlds? Even if they are paid subscriptions?

    The online live coverage of US Nationals will be on icenetwork.com. Icenetwork has the exclusive online live rights to Skate America and US Nationals.

    Like in previous seasons, Universal Sports TV (primarily) and NBC should have live TV coverage of most of the senior events at US Nationals.

    Universal Sports.com has not made any announcements so far, but I think it is fair to assume at this point that they will provide online live coverage of 2011 Worlds for a subscription fee.

    Not sure if Universal Sports.com is going to provide online live subscription feeds for Euros or 4CCs. The only coverage of these two events that was provided last year was a few hours of taped coverage on Universal Sports TV.

    My guess is that they may want to get her seasoned first by letting her cover the "smaller" events? I think it's a transitional period. I notice Tom Hammond and Sandra Bezic are notably absent...that shows that they are trying to prepare a new broadcast team, perhaps for if they cover the 2014 games.

    Late night/early morn' broadcast (ET) + weekend = potentially booze-soaked PBP.

    Methinks the Beaded Clutch Brigade will be out in full force Saturday at 10pmish (ET).

    Well, UniSports.com was going along swimmingly, then I found I couldn’t find video feeds without the damn billboard ad anymore. I did fire off a firm email to them complaining that paying subscribers shouldn’t be subject to ads that take of a third of the screen. Anybody else notice this? Any solutions?

    I got the billboard add during the gymnastics worlds. Sometimes it was there and sometimes it was not. It's annoying, esp. when you are a paid subscriber.

    No idea on how to get rid of it.

    Yeah I get it too! At first it wasn't there all the time so I'd keep refreshing until I didn't get it but now it's there ALL the time! I should send them an e-mail too. If I pay for this I shouldn't have to see a huge ad all the time.

    The Free Dance is on now "Presented without commentary". Perhaps in response to posters here who want that. It would be neat just as a change of pace, however you can hear soft commentary in the background....almost sounds mumbled, so hopefully they will either fully mute the commentary or just leave it in.
