I recently visited the NBC website in hope of finding out details about the Turin 2006 competition. There is absolutely no information on NBC yet. Does any know, or can give me a link to a site, with the following information:
* Who will be the anchors & the figure-skating analysts for the 2006 NBC telecasts? [Is Scott Hamilton well enough to return as the main skating analyst, for example? Will it be Sandra Bezik and Vern Lundquist in the booth, once again? If so, Russian skaters better run & take cover!]
* Will the NBC Family of cable channels offer more in-depth coverage of skating, a-la the 2004 Athens broadcasts? It would be great if we could see more than 7-8 performances in each event!!! Better yet, how about letting us see an entire field of skaters, a-la Eurosport?
* Also, as in Athens, will NBC be offering high-definition coverage of certain marquee events? In the case of Athens, lucky viewers with HD could see the ENTIRE gymnastics event (mens & ladies artistic, as well as rhythmic). Maybe we skating fans may be offered the chance to see the ENTIRE skating competition, in some form, at a premium cost?
I would be willing to pay up to $500 (maybe more) for the privilege & joy of seeing the ENTIRE skating competition (pairs, men, dance & ladies) as it happens, live, commercial free, from the comfort of my living room. How about you?
