    2012 Euros - Online Viewing Options

    Well what are they?

    If you know of any way of watching Euros online, please share it and I will add all information to this post, so we have it all in one place, for easy reference.

    If you already know the schedule for particular TV channels, please post it here as well.

    US - IceNetwork is not showing Euros online because they didn't manage to strike a deal with whoever has the tv rights.

    Sweden - SVT should have excellent full online coverage, as usual. It's geo-blocked though.

    Worldwide - There's a number of online services, offering the option to watch Russian tv channels online. They usually have very good coverage.

    I have used them all and the best one, by far, IMO is [url=http://tvteka.com/TVTEKA[/url].

    There's also RUTelevision and some other ones, I don't remember now.

    TRT-3 (a Turkish channel) usually has very good live figure skating coverage, however the free video stream sometimes fails when hordes of figure skating fans overload it. ;P

    CCTV (Chinese state tv) often shows figure skating and streams can be found on various free streaming websites but the quality isn't great and their coverage usually isn't complete.

    Eurosport Player is cheap and will enable you to watch Eurosport online, however it might be geo-blocked to Europe and the quality of service is very poor with a high failure rate. I would advise against it.

    You mean - Euros 2012?

    I've always thought Eurosport has the same tv schedule in every country. I was wrong.

    Eurosport France offers almost full coverage:

    Wednesday
    Pairs SP 15:00-18:00
    Ice Dance - SD 19.30-22.30

    Thursday
    MEN SP 14:00-18:15
    Pairs LP 19:30-22:30

    Friday
    Ladies SP 14:00-17:15
    Ice Dance FD 19:30-22:15

    Saturday
    Ladies LP 19:30-22:30


    and this is what other countries get from Eurosport.....

    Thursday
    Pairs LP 22:00-23.00

    Friday
    Ice Dance FD 22:00-23.25

    Saturday
    Men LP 15:45-17.00
    Ladies LP 22:00-23.15

    Sunday
    Gala 15:45-17.00

    Complete list of confirmed broadcasters for the ISU European Figure Skating Championship 2012 (http://europeans2012.co.uk/news/32):

    YLEISRADIO OY FIYLE - Finland
    Eurosport - France
    France Televisions – FTV - France

    GRERT - Greece
    MTVA - Hungary

    Uhmm yes, Euros 2012 of course.

    If some kind admin could correct that, I'd be very grateful.

    And yes, Eurosport schedule does vary from one country to another. Thanks for posting that schedule Malgosia.

    They've never shown as little as this.

    Don't think so, since SVT has no TV broadcasts at all this year, I fear they won't send anything online at all as well.

    Russia 2 will broadcast everything live, except the men´s free skate and will chack most likely the first two groups of the ladies free skate

    This channel can be watched via tvteka or webtv

    dont forget for those outside Europe, Canada, USA or Japan, you can purchase (with paypal) the Live and On Demand coverage at the ISU PPV Site

    I get Men's and Ladies' live coverage here in Japan so this covers pretty much everything. Thanks for the info!

    the issue is that if eurosport doesnt show anything then no matter if there are tons and tons of links, we will get what they have on the tv schedule and thus far the coverage is very poor

    Ok, so so far we've got two decent options:

    Estonian TV shows everything live and let's pray it won't be geo-blocked.

    Russia 2 will show almost everything live (and is available on webtv, tvteka and rutelevision).

    Sport 2 is also showing Ladies and Men FS live full versions on January 28. All the other events will be taped.

    Unfortunately TV4 bought the rights in Sweden, and they're doing a shitty job showing almost nothing online (I heard rumours they might show the gala online, but haven't found anything on their TV4Play site) and only showing men and ladies on TV4 Sport (a channel I noticed I actually have, who knew?) and Sjuan, going as far as cutting up the gala to only show men + ladies. I read somewhere they might show the highlights of the pairs FP and the FD during the zamboni breaks, but who knows. The only good thing about this coverage is that Filip Stiller will be the commentator.

    Times in CET:

    TV4 sport/Sjuan:
    26/1: 14:00-18:20 men sp
    27/1: 14-17:30 ladies sp
    17.30-18.15 ladies sp (Sjuan).

    28/1: 13:55 - 17 men fp
    18:30-22:30 ladies sp
    19-20 men + ladies gala exh bits

    TV Finland shows a little bit too:
    26/1: 15-16 men sp
    21-22:30 pairs fp

    27/1: 15:10-16 & 17:30-18:20 ladies sp
    21:05-22:30 FD

    28/1: 15:20-17:15 men fp
    21:25-22:25 ladies fp

    29/1: 15:25-17:15 gala exh

    So I'm not asking a kind admin to update the OP because I'm lazy. But because there just sadly isn't much choice out there.

    If you live in Estonia, ETV2 will be streaming everything other than the Preliminary Rounds: http://otse.err.ee/etv2/

    If you live in Finland, YLE streams everything live: http://areena.yle.fi/live

    For those living in Canada, South America, Africa and some Asian countries (a full list doesn't exist, you need to check yourself whether you can watch it from your location), you can get access via the ISU Channel for $18.50:
    http://livemanager.eurovision.edgesu...pay/index.html

    Worldwide, you can get access to Russia 2 (which will show most of the events live) through TVTeka: http://tvteka.com/

    For me the same. We dont get access to the ISU channel and our Tv doesn't broadcast anything. I'm very angry about this Eurosport coverage and about German tv.

    Probably because Eurosport has the tv rights.

    I think FarFarAway posted saying that Russia 2 will have everything live, other than the early groups of Ladies and Men FS.
