As for IceNetwork, to me it is not financially worth spending $30 to watch skating online for just a couple of days/one competition.
In past years, the short programs (at least for Mens and Ladies) have always been shown, both on NBC and ABC. Why they decided to act as though they don't exist is ridiculous.
Would they show only the second half of the Superbowl or the chack the first four games of the World Series? Of course not. Hell, USA Network (owned by NBC) is airing every friggin' round of the Australian Open.
Interesting that the rep from Universal Sports who kept us abreast last season has conveniently disappeared . An explanation and an apology would have been nice.
