Feel free to post in this thread any updates you find regarding Live, online streaming of the 2012 Grand Prix events in the USA.
Grand Prix and general television coverage updates/discussion for the USA can be found in the following thread in TV ALERTS:
The USA has two "official" providers of live, online streaming of the Grand Prix Series:
Icenetwork.com: Live streaming of Skate America.
Delayed, on-demand ONLY streaming of the remaining GP events, available seven days after the end of each event. Requires a paid "Seasons Pass" subscription.
Universalsports.com: Live streaming of all GP events with the exception of Skate America. Live streaming is "available exclusively to satellite and cable customers who have Universal Sports as part of their television package."
Thread to discuss/complain about Universal Sports' decision to no longer allow anyone in the US to purchase access to the live streaming:
Don't have or want access to icenetwork and/or Universal Sports? You can check out your "unofficial" viewing options in the 2012 Grand Prix Ungeoblocked Online Viewing Options thread.
