    I Love, Love, Love Universal Sports

    I don't even know what to do with myself with respect to the schedule starting today through the weekend on Universal Sports. On the roster per Comcast:

    Today, Wednesday at 11 PM EST, The women's team final
    [*]Tomorrow, Thursday at 11 PM EST, The men's team final
    [*]Saturday at 12 MN, The women's all around final

    Feels like a mini-version of the week in January where we have Euros and US Nationals at the same time.

    I have to say I love Universal Sports but I'm stressing, we had it in LA and moving to Las Vegas we still have it. But in Feburary we will probably be moving to Orlando, Florida and they have it over the air?? Does anyone watch it on tv that way? Or know how to get it over the air? I guess I will be complaining to the cable provider to get it. It sooo makes me not want to move to Orlando. Forget the heat and humidity, I can deal with that, the lack of Universal Sports is the deal breaker

    Here is where Universal Sports TV is broadcast. Orlando has it over the air (WHDO over-the-air 38).

    I believe you can pay in advance. The cost is $14.99 for the whole GP Series and Final (but NOT Skate America). Try this link.

    The west coast times are 3 hours earlier than the eastern times.

    On the Universal Sports TV schedules below you can change the timezone easily.

    I hate Universal Sports. I feel like because of it all the NBC broadcasts just go there instead. So I don't get any. We don't get it over the air, or by cable.

    Very sad.

    Looking at their schedule, I SO wish Universal Sports were more widely available. Here's hoping one of the satellite services adds it to their nationwide programming soon. I think it would be enough to make me switch. Not really happy with Comcast anyway.

    It's been crazy-great! I've been up and down the stairs so many times the last few changing discs back and forth between gymnastics and skating that I've gotten quite the workout (my best DVD is upstairs...) Tomorrow is a bit of a toughie since the HD broadcast on NBC coincides with the MSP/FD, but HD has to take precedence and I'll catch the other on repeat.

    Whew! What a weekend!! TY to Universal and NBC! You are

    Hope someone sees this who could answer my question. I didn't think it was worth a new thread.

    I don't go on the boards daily, so can anyone update me - last winter in Massachusetts no one had Universal Sports. Now my friend at work gleefully advised me that she spent the last weekened in her jammies watching Skate Canada on Universal Sports. She has Comcast. I have DirectTV. I guess things have changed. I adore my DirectTV and it's cheaper than Comcast. Go figure, I originally switched to DirectTV because they didn't have Oxygen, and skating (Worlds LA) was extensively covered that year. I can't win....

    Bonita, you should check to see whether your local NBC station is broadcasting Universal Sports on one of its sub-channels. There's a good chance it is doing so, since Comcast has added the channel in your area. In that case, you may be able to get the channel with a cheap TV antenna. I can't provide specifics on this because I have Universal Sports through Comcast, but others have posted here on FSU that they've been able to get the channel over the air.

    From what others have posted, DirectTV doesn't seem too interested in adding Universal Sports to its channel line-up.

    I don't even know how to get real TV without cable/satellite, but I'll ask my husband. I haven't had real TV without cable/satellite since the early nineties, LOL. I am a dino, however, and remember the tenny on the roof. Though my family was "rich" - we had an early remote control TV (a toggle control that you could flip through all ten or so channels/cost my dad quite a bit of a paycheck). My how things have changed. DirectTV is really cool, so I don't want to ditch it, but I've just gotten "yessed" to death WRT adding Universal Sports when I spoke with an actual human being.
