    Didn't ABC show the top three ladies at junior worlds during US Nationas?

    It's possible the Koreans will have streaming video of the juniors. It's hard to know. Last year there was almost nothing from JGPF, but this year, since the seniors and the juniors are together, I am hoping that some video will be available.

    Please be aware that in the US, Icenetwork has the broadcast rights to both the JGPF and the GPF, so the likelihood of videos making it to youtube and staying there long is not great.

    And if you're in the US, subscribing to Ice Network, provided you have a good quality high speed link, is worthwhile. They do put the archived video footage up several days later and keep it there for over a year, so you need not have time to view it just now. If you stay in hotels in the US with any frequency, you could view the footage then.

    you probably mean during the senior Worlds, not during US Nats.

    According to IceNetwork their LIVE coverage will be on Dec 12 and 13. This would indicate to me one of two possibilities:

    1. Korean TV is either not providing coverage of Dec 11 day one coverage of all the Junior short program and original dance events; or...
    2. They are not covering live, but on a delay basis (and IN plans to record and put up on their site for after the fact OnDemand viewing).

    I am hoping for possibility # 2.

    I sent an email into the customer service to ask IN if they were planning on showing the Junior competitors OnDemand or not at all and the person responded with just the URL for the Senior Live competition viewing schedule. So either they misunderstood my question or the Junior part of the Grand Prix is not going to be shown at IN at all.

    No word on whether or not it's because of a Korean TV broadcasting decision.

    Pretty frustrating for viewers since such a good opportunity of holding both JGPF and Senior GPF in the same competition venue would seem naturally to follow that you would broadcast all of the competition programming at once.

    ...Whyyyy!? This is the perfect opportunity to show JGP skaters...and I have to admit, I am dying to see the Hubbells.

    I'm sorry but it's incredibly pointless to not show it live...and just a bit stupid.

    It seems as though WebTV NTV will be showing some of the Juniors

    НТВ-ПЛЮС Спорт Онлайн channel:
    Thursday Dec 11
    10:40-16:15 (Moscow time)
    Junior OD/Junior Men SP/Junior Pairs SP/Junior Ladies SP(Live)

    Friday Dec 12
    08:25-11:25 (Moscow time)
    Junior Pairs FS/Junior Men FS (Live)

    Does anyone know if there will any broadcasts or if NTV will be showing the Jr Ladies FS & Jr Dance FD?

    Seriously, you just know IceNetwork will be removing YouTube videos like crazy, but they can't be arsed to show it live. UUURGH. Obviously there's a feed if Russian TV is showing it.

    Do you have to pay for NTV? Yeah, youtube vids of the GP don't last a day. I would buy an IN subscription in a heartbeat, but Europeans are blocked from all of the Grand Prix.
