    Lightbulb 2011 Four Continents TV and Online Schedules

    To watch
    Fuji TV: download Keyhole TV (link 1, link 2) and click on "フジテレビ" or "Fuji TV" in the listings and then click the "watch" button.

    CBC TV: This is a TV station broadcast in Canada. Trying to find a stream link, maybe someone will show the dance broadcast with justin.tv or something similar.

    CCTV5: If you use a P2P (peer to peer) program like Sopcast, TVU or TVAnts you can watch CCTV5 through the P2P program.
    Stream links: http://delicast.com/tv/CCTV_5
    http://guzei.com/online_tv/watch.php?online_tv_id=2519
    (more links to be posted later in this thread as they are tested)

    There are rumors that Skatebuzz (from Canada) may show Four Continents live, but it will probably be geo-blocked to Canada only. no skatebuzz coverage, see below.

    The Chinese CNTV full live streaming of Four Continents is an internet-only channel and I have not gotten it to work here in the USA. Hopefully someone will stream using a justin.tv-like alternative or make youtube videos.

    J Sports Plus, a premium channel in Japan is showing the singles (ladies and mens) events live. They will show the pairs/dance/gala in March in a later broadcast. J Sports is the network that had better live coverage of US Nationals than NBC. Hopefully some good youtube videos from this broadcast.

    In Taiwan there is also full live coverage like in China, but it is probably geo-blocked. Elta TV, Videoland, and hichannel are broadcasting.

    If anyone can find streams to access the Canadian, Taiwanese, Chinese, and Japanese coverage it would be very appreciated.

    Universal Sports TV/online has the USA rights for 4CCs from the ISU but is choosing not to broadcast/stream 4CCs.
    If you are try contacting them on twitter at @universalsports and @unisports_skate. Twitter hash tag for 4CCs is #4CC.

    UPDATE: Universal Sports is looking into streaming 4CC. Stay tuned for any updates.

    Just google "CCTV5 streaming live" and you can get some streams.
    CCTV5 is also on some P2P players like Sopcast and TVAnts.

    I am going to post the streaming links tomorrow. Bedtime now

    Thank you!

    Will Fujitv be in English? Are any of these to watch online in English (besides the potentially geo-blocked Canadian one)?

    I am FUMING that UniSports has the rights but isn't showing it! It makes no sense to show the entire GP season and Nats and then not the 4CCs! I don't have a twitter acct, so I'll try to email them.

    No, it's a Japanese TV station.

    Thanks for compiling everything that's known at this point, HisWeirness!

    Unhappy

    skatebuzz on twitter:
    Sorry all, we were not able to secure the stream for #4CC and will not be streaming it...watch @cbcsports for an Ice Dance special Saturday
    (((Canadians)))

    So, besides the CBC one-hour dance special, there is no coverage of 4CCs online or on TV in North America. This can't be good for the sport.

    I don't see why the programmers would not want to show something where a lot of Americans or Canadians will be winning medals or in contention to win medals.

    Too bad!
    We North Americans will be searching the internet for coverage, as usual.

    Obviously skatebuzz gave it their all... I wonder what was the fly in the ointment ?..( someone's greed seems probable )

    CBC is giving a token amount of time to ice dance . Annoying enough..but I really don't know why they couldn't have at least given a similar token to the other disciplines as well. Gr-r-r-r. I feel a complaint coming on.

    We should all send them emails. I already did and I don't have much hope that they will answer but if they will I'll post it here.

    I sent them one as well. Shockingly, no response yet.
    I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.

    I hate that Universal Sports has the rights when it comes to Euros, 4CC and Jr. Worlds. We got them all streamed in their entirety (albeit on demand iirc) on IceNetwork two seasons ago. I don't see why US can't at least post online if it doesn't give airtime.

    And boo to whoever was greedy enough to prevent the Canadian stream. This sucks.

    It does suck that we don't get any coverage, but it's not like I could watch the overwhelming majority of it anyway. All of the events are either in the middle of the night or while I'm at work.

    Universal Sports has been asked via Twitter, and Facebook for an explaination as to why they are not covering the event when they have the rights to do so. Total Silence! I can only assume they have no reasonable response. If they did they would not be hiding under their collective desks.

    In the future U.S. Figure Skating should seek for the ISU to alter broadcast/webcast rights to require all contracted ISU events be shown by the rights holder or they don't even get to bid for said rights.

    Can you tell this is one Pissed Skating Fan?
    There is nothing more captivating in this world than a woman's form gracing the ice in skating boots. It's simply sensational!
