    Yet again I'm disgusted with British Eurosport. DON'T complain to them complain to the ISU. They have sold them the rights. Pissing off the viewers is not the right way to go.

If they cared about actually getting the sport out to a greater number of viewers they'd drop the cost and/or spread it around more (or put it up on youtube or their own channel as soon as possible), since they don't I can't imagine the ISU will do anything.

    Can anyone sort this out for me ?. My Sky planner is now showing that the men's SP starts at 11 tonight on Eurosport but does not end until 7.30 in the morning !. This can't be right. Do you think they will show the pairs SP after the men's short ?. Or is that just very wishful thinking ?!

    There's no programming at all between the end of Men SP and 7:30 in the morning.

    I've just emailed the ISU to tell them how bad it is the British Eurosport are showing their usual Wednesday selection (Small boring progames) while LIVE skating is going on.
    Who runs Eurosport ?. They should be fired.

    I spotted that too - I think it's a blip in the programming - it usually goes to the shopping channel at 2am and I suspect it will do at 2am. Unless they fix the listing, though, your recording it likely to be 8hrs or more - with a good 6 hours of home shopping at the end.

    It's only available if you are in the UK and watching live at the time it is being broadcast (in other words you can't set up sky plus or tivo to record the red button). You go to any BBC channel and then press the red button on your remote control and menu comes up with different viewing options.

    Thank you. I will try that because Eurosport is quite limited.

    or
    Чемпионат мира по Фигурному катанию.
    No worries, you'll find it! If you have any problems, post here or in Pairs Short thread.
    Thank you Dinakt -- I have Sport but do not see anything like Worlds listed. : ( : ( Google translating like mad...

    I am also frantically looking for the live skating through the TVTeka website. Got the free trial, and now I can't find the right button. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    If there is anyone who can get German channel ARD they are showing highlights of the pairs short tomorrow during the other winter sports coverage through the day.
    Also, if you have a freeview box then the red button channel (UK only) has all four free skates at the weekend.
    Hope this helps.

    You still have to do your bit & let the ISU know how it is harming such a great sport. Less coverage = Less people watching = Less people skating. Also, Eurosport coverage this season has been weird. Fantastic coverage of the Grand Prix Events, Junior Worlds & The 4CC's BUT the two BIG events the Euro's & World's get treated like this. Why ?!

    Let me know if you geta response from the ISU, I bet you don't, but if you do, i'm happy to add my voice, but for now I think it's a waste of time.
