Thanks for the info, @victorskid

Right now the TV broadcast listings are totally confusing. The page says the times are shown as CST (my current time zone), but by the time of Worlds we will be on CDT. Actually this is par for the course on the CBC schedules and usually means CDT
Also for the individual listings it is all mucked up. For example:

- in the time column for Pairs Short it has 2:00 pm CST, but then in the comments it says 4 p.m. your local time zone. This of course makes no sense at all. Even if they meant 4 p.m. ET there is only a 1 hour difference between ET & CT.

- for Men's Short once again the time column shows 2:00 pm CST, but the comments say 4 p.m. ET Quebec-west. Again this doesn't make sense because 4 p.m. ET is 3 p.m. CT

As always I will have to figure it out from my cable provider's schedule, which usually ends up changing several times before the event starts just to add to the fun.

Up until now they weren't showing anything so, at least, they are now showing something :) I always say to check local schedules!!
I believe when you go to the link it automatically shows "your" time zone.

When I look at it is showing 3:00 PM EST and then says 4pm local in the notes. I think the first time is the current time in my time zone, not taking into account the time change - clocks move one hour forward so what is 3pm now becomes 4pm after the time change. It's a very confusing way of showing it, but the daylight savings time change has become anachronistic anyways.

Well that is one explanation but that hasn't been the case in the past. Once the clocks change the time in the schedule doesn't usually even though it will now claim it is showing it as DST.

P.S. I could do without the time change too but only if they chose DST as the permanent time because if it were to all become what is now CST, the sun would be up here at 3:30-4:00 in the morning in the summer. Even in the winter I prefer my daylight more later in the day.
