Hmm, I don't think that would be 2014 -- first I noticed that it's labelled as BMO and I just figured someone would get their wrist slapped over it (it hasn't been BMO in a few years, I don't think, and this year it is definitely Canadian Tire). But the dates are off, too. January 12 is a Sunday and the last day of the gala. Thursday (January 9) is a practice day only. (But thank you for looking and for posting! )
There is nothing yet on the Skate Canada site regarding the broadcast schedule for 2014 Canadians (beginning on Thursday, January 9th and running through the 15th).
I don't know what sort of coverage is planned for the short programs but if you look at the competition schedule you'll see that the free skates are split - most skaters skating early and then the final groups in each discpline on later - those will probably be broadcast live - just a hunch.
Still nothing on the TSN Figure Skating page......talk about leaving it to the last minute to schedule!
No kidding! what is it that they don't know about their other programs that is causing this delay?
Any news on the schedule yet?
There are now two times listed on TSN.ca. Friday Jan 10th at 3 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m.
ETA: I also see a one hour slot on the CTV.ca schedule on Sunday Jan 12th at 5 p.m.
This begs the question, when are they going to broadcast the free skates?
The full TV schedule is now posted on the event website: http://www.skatecanada.ca/en-us/eve...antirenationalfigureskatingchampionships.aspx

This is the schedule a TSN audience relations rep sent me:
Fri. January 10 at 3 p.m. ET: Women's & Ice Dance Short on TSN
Fri. January 10 at 7:30 p.m. ET: Men's & Pairs Short on TSN
Sat. January 11 at 2:30 p.m. ET: Short Program Recap on CTV
Sat. January 11 at 4 p.m. ET: Pairs & Ice Dance Free on TSN
Sat. January 11 at 7p.m. ET: Women's & Men's Free on TSN
That list includes a CTV short program recap on Saturday rather than the event recap on Sunday, otherwise it matches what is posted on the Skate Canada website. For what it's worth, my on-screen guide matches the Skate Canada listing, ie. it has the Sunday recap on CTV but nothing on CTV on Saturday.
Well you never know - yda the Sunday recap on CTV was not in my listings but today it is. Who knows what tmo will bring. There is a 1 hour TBA on Saturday at noon CT. Talk about waiting to the last minute - what a mess. Can only hope that some other country bought the rights to the broadcast and we eventually get access to the rest of the skating. Last year I think it was shown in full on Spanish TV or something unexpected like that.
CTV main network is broadcasting the NFL playoffs Sat and Sun afternoons so I doubt they'll be able to adjust scheduling to accommodate more than an 1/2 hour recap. Very happy that TSN is part of my cable package!
