    Thank God for this coverage on NBC. We moved to Florida, which doesnt get Universal Sports, so I'll take what I can get.

    On the Universal Sports website, they say in the Orlando area its over the air on channel 38 WHDO. Well we bought a digital antenna to pick up the over the air channels & it gets alot of them, however 38 isnt one of them so we will be taking it back

    Needless to say I wrote Brighthouse cable & requested Universal Sports

    I've been lobbying Brighthouse in Central Florida for years, about adding Univeral Sports.
    No luck yet.

    Terry! Last year when I saw him at SA in Portland I clammed up and didn't ask for a pic. I'm going to try to be braver this year.

    Thanks RD.

    I wonder if the extra hour will means we get to see part of the pair and icedance competitions (at least the winners programs). Or possibly this means just more of the singles events (SP's).

    eta:
    I just noticed that only Skate America gets 3 hrs while the remainder of the GP events is the usual two hours.

    Do we mean there showing it for 3 rather then 2hrs. this year? If there also adding an extra hr. It just goes to show that your TV. Stations are indeed capable of showing ALL of their Sports...and not editing so much and doing a half A. Job.

    Yeah what a kicker that was. Here i was less then 6 hours from Vancouver and yet NBC didn't show any skating live. NBC sucks hard.

    Me...I'm happy-dancing at the changing of the guard. We get to keep Terry.

    ... and more at the switch to an informed TaraL and MikeW for commentary. Loved them on UniSports and I'm glad they got the nod and the promotion to the big show.
