Ooh, here's hoping then. Fingers crossed they don't run into the same roadblock ($$$ I assume) that Skatebuzz did.
I don't even know why they are being so stingy with it! For TV reasons do they not want to pay commentators? I forget which GP but they aired one live without commentary for an hour. Skate America?
This is a major competition and to have no Canadian coverage on TV, let alone live stream, is unacceptable. Of course I have to accept it, but am not doing so happily.
I was thinking of complaining as well.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.
Sigh. I think complaining to the CBC is not the right move. Cranky fans are more likely to make them wash their hands of the whole thing. I wish we could see more but I am glad that at least we get something.
I now have the luxury of being able to watch competitions in the middle of the night if I want without worrying about work the next day so I really would like the chance to see them. Unfortunately it just isn't going to happen.
Too bad SkateBuzz won't stream it because, even for those who cannot watch live they were immediately archiving the stream for on demand viewing at your convenience.
Hope springs anew...maybe even in Canada, since skatebuzz has piggybacked from Univeral Sports' feed in the past...
With Alissa's, D/W's, and the Shibs' terrific placements all season plus the excitement of Bradley and Y/C, I just cannot imagine no TV broadcast
Skate Talker, there is some truth in that old adage that "honey attracts more bees than vinegar", but then lol sometimes "the squeaky wheel gets the grease". lol Who knows what to do>
*Sighs* this is so frustrating... 4CC is not an inferior championship anymore.. All the A-Teams are going (Except for US Men and thas because the A-Tean ended up being a bunch of newbies so the actual B-Team here is arguably stronger). The level at the top will be way higher than Euros yet this event is always treated like it doesnt exist..
At this point I don't care. I just want to be able to view it live SOMEHOW from Canada. I'm cool with non-geoblocked-foreign-language internet content!
Do we have a winner as far as that goes? I need to know if I should start taking my uppers later this evening...
^ The first post in this thread lists the live coverage available.
Right now, CCTV 5 is showing pairs SP live 6:30am - 8:30am Eastern NA early Thursday AM.
Hopefully tonight I can work on finding reliable CCTV5 streams. Everyone is welcome to help with this .
The only events with potentially live coverage (for those in North America, etc.) are Pairs SP and FS (CCTV5) and Mens FS (Fuji TV).
Hopefully Universal Sports will come through and provide a stream, but nothing is certain at this point.
I guess I'll have to wait till tomorrow to see if I'm staying home on Friday because I got up in the middle of the night on Thursday.
Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.
