    GPF on TV

    Eurosport apparently is barely showing anything . I couldn't see figure skating on their Friday schedule at all, even though they have lots of non-live slots that day, and there's very little on Saturday (most of it not live, so it'll likely get pre-empted). They do appear to be showing two hours of something on Thursday - I'm guessing it would be from the JGPF - and the gala or tape-delayed content on Sunday.

    Does anyone know about other broadcasts? My cable company does carry all sorts of international stations so this would be very helpful...

    I might end up subscribing to that Russian feed.

    But we should keep our eyes open, those Koreans were very inventive last year with free live-streaming - also from the GPF even when it wasn't in Korea - maybe they repeat the favour this year.

    Some updates about Eurosport's schedule:

    Thursday is not GPF coverage, but some kind of exhibition, I think from Germany (Medusa - any ideas what that might be?)

    Saturday morning (8:30 GMT) is the free dance. I'd rather see the men live, but dance is my second choice this season so at least there's that.

    Saturday's taped coverage remains a mystery.

    Thanks for the links and ideas, I'll keep my eyes open. My internet connection at home is not great, so I'm probably not going to watch too much. Hopefully there will be videos somewhere on the internet.

    I payed for the Russian feed now. Currently watching NBA - should be good for my Russian skills too, though until now I don't understand more then "very" "good" "please" "work" "strong"... Now I need to find out if they plan to broadcast the JGPF.

    NTV+ announcer Soloviev says so on his blog:

    It's not in the TV listings yet.

    NB: I feel somewhat reluctant about helping webTV to support their customers. I'm not a client, they don't pay me, I'm not working for them. Yet, thanks to me, they have a large client base (international figure skating fans).

    Well, I thank you very much, though I won't pay you either. Except of course for a nice thankful smilie

    And I guess they earn a lot because Icenetwork doesn't allow us lower humans (read: non-Americans) to use their service. And yes, I know that I can't watch Icenetwork because they just own the rights in the US - and not because they tried to spite every lower-human figure skating fan. Me is still miffed

    I just hope they update their program soon, I need to plan my thursday... I would love to cheer for Amodio live.

    Never expected you to :o

    But if they don't show JGPF, don't blame me!

    I bet IN secretly hates webtv, or at least I like to think they do.

    Still not sure about my plans for tomorrow, but if I know something I'll PM you. Unless some good Samaritan posts it here or on that other board.
