    ISU PPV Skating Channel

    I found this today (sorry if is in another thread) on the ISU Skating Channel

    http://livemanager.eurovision.edgesu...pay/index.html

    They have an offer of 13.50 USD ´event pass´for the Grand Prix Final in Quebec, Live and On-Demand

    And also they have under ´more products´ (Live and On Demand)

    European Championships, 4 Continents and Worlds

    each sold separately for $18.50 USD

    You will have to test first to see if your internet is capable of the stream rate and if it is available in your country

    Because Russia gets coverage through their networks.

    But I am excited. Particularly for worlds. I might even take a couple of days off work so I can watch it.

    There is no list which countries are restricted on that website.

    Is it only for Australia, New Zealand and Africa again?

    Only that we don't.

    Not full coverage anyway.

    What is really infuriating is that the ISU, which obviously has access to full coverage and can easily show full events online - becuase it's not like there are scheduling clashes with other programs, it's internet tv that can show everything - doesn't.

    Preliminary rounds aren't shown which means no record of them is going to exist because tv definitely isn't going to show them.

    As well as Europe and US on IceNetwork. For whom is this website then?

    Regarding the coverage in Russia - GP was shown on Sport 2 channel which is very rare to find in cable networks because this is a new channel and Sportbox which requires good internet connection, which is not available for everyone still, and the quality of the picture is far from being perfect most of the time.

    Anyway, I am ready to pay the money to ISU for watching this online, but I can't, and this frustrates me most.

    I think the last time they had a list of countries like all the African countries (because they are massive figure skating fans), South American countries (because they can't wait to see the Latin SD) and Antartica (because they have ice). Anyway any country that doesn't have a broadcaster who hasn't paid rights to show figure skating.

    We have not got to see any figure skating except Olympics for years.

    I don't see where the coverage is listed.

    Any chance we can get it in Canada? Probably not.

    13.50 for GPF ??

    Some inflation for last season's worlds, which was 10 bucks (and well worth it)

    I'll still probably pay for Euros and Worlds though...

    I'm in Brazil, and the FS coverage we get here is ZERO. So this kind of stuff is very welcomed.

    So is Finland, too. It´s very sad since our TV shows only the ladies event well, but from other disciplinen we get to see only a couple skaters...

    It's not listed, you have to run the test video to see whether it works for you.

    And no, no chance of it working in Canada because tv rights to ISU Championships have been bought by one of your tv networks (of course they fact that network is only going to show tiny scraps is yet another matter ).

    Unrelated to the current discussion, but I felt compelled to share anyway....

    Every time I scan the thread titles for topics I want to click on, this one catches my eye cause my brain does one of those "fill in the blanks" kind of thing, and I read, "ISU Puppy Skating Channel."

    Why doesn't the ISU channel show Preliminary Rounds?

    I mean everything gets recorded on the judges' camera anyhow, why not stream it?

    Or at least, make it available on YT, like the JGP videos.

    Somebody find a contact in the ISU that we can mail/call/whatever to take this issue up.

    It's so heartbreaking that nobody will get to see and appreciate the efforts those skaters and no record of their performance will exist anywhere (given video recording in the arena is now allowed).

    I will buy the PPV service, and there is a statement on the description of the event that they will start coverage on january 23, dont know if it is for real, but it gives a little hope that the preliminary rounds will get coverage

    Well, it seems like ISU made it quite clear at the beginning of the season that they won't be showing any preliminary rounds due to rights restrictions. The rights were sold to different countries in EU, Russia, Asia and America and these rights do include preliminaries. So no way. Except on their paid channel reserved for the countries where Euros and Worlds etc are not usually broadcast.
