    ISU Web TV

    Good news is that ISU is web broadcasting in HD all Worlds events from Moscow for moderate price of $10. Now the bad news is that it does not work for my country even though the broadcaster is Eurovision.
    The link is posted on main ISU website.
    http://www.isu.org/vsite/vnavsite/pa...v-list,00.html

    Does everyone else have the same problem? I can't find any information on which countries this broadcast is for.

    I better move to Afganistan.
    Seriously though, how come I am subjected to situation when I am restricted from watching the competition because someone bought it and then refuse to show.
    There must be some law prohibitng that? I am thinking seriously about filing formal complaint.

    I wonder how many skating fans there are in Swaziland?
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    Ummm those of us in countries who don't have host broadcasters have had to go through that for years and haven't had access to services in the US and Canada because we are blocked.

    Well, personally I'm thrilled, as this basically means I'll be able to watch Worlds, which otherwise would not have been the case. $10US is a very reasonable price, particularly as the Aussie dollar is currently stronger!

    I'm sorry for those in countries who can't access this service due to prior purchase by a broadcaster, but for those of us in countries that don't normally get ANY coverage (or not since the early 90s, when all we got was a one hour highlights programme several months after the event), this is very good news.
    The ancient Egyptians worshipped cats as gods, and the cats have never forgotten.

    Hmmm I think it is what it was called after Loompa land got taken over by the Imperial forces so the Death Star could be rebuilt. I have heard it has a fantastic canteen.

    And Antarctica isn't a country last time I checked either. Wonder if the penguins have internet though.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    You could always try to get an ip blocker to trick the Internet into thinking you were from one of those countries...

    Its a shame that there is only the HD option, because in countries like Mexico we have one of the slowest bandwith (and expensive) internet, so for me the stream does play but it is like 5 seconds, pause, 5 seconds, pause, so it does not worth it even the cheap price

    Hope they could stream like in HD and standard resolution, its a shame they dont consider the internet limitations that countries like in latinamerica have. We are way behind those in Europe, USA and Asia in terms of upload-download speed

    Universal Sports is charging $9.95 in the U.S. for live online streaming of Worlds.

    The icenetwork has the gall to charge subscribers an additional $4.95 to view 2011 Worlds. New subscribers must pay the overly priced $39.95 for the season pass plus the additional $4.95 just to see Worlds. The season pass should include Worlds!!! (and aside from Worlds the season's viewing options on icenetwork are essentially over anyway). Such money grubbers.

    I live in Brazil, and I paid for it today (apparently, the access has already been activated).

    Let's see how this goes...

    icenetwork.com is only charging $9.95 to non-season pass holders to watch Worlds.
