    Universal Sports

    Did anyone ever get a response from Universal Sports for not showing worlds? Any explanations?

    I don't understand - I saw Worlds on Universal Sports. They had good coverage.
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    I believe the complaints were about the online coverage on universalsports.com, specifically the missing(?) men's and ladies' free skates: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=83138

    Oh. That wasn't clear from the original post.

    I didn't watch it online, so on that, I can't comment.

    I'm thinking this thread should either be moved to the TV forum, or linked up with the old one you linked to.

    The camera coverage was quite good. The voice over commentators were awful.

    True, true. At this point, though, I'm so used to the bad commentators that I don't bother commenting about that! Except via grumbling asides to my husband as we watch.

    But they provided a decent amount of coverage, for which I remain grateful.

    Sorry, I was referring to the online service and not showing women's and mens.
