    Found this article in the liberal-green newspaper taz.

    Apparently the taz asked Eurosport about the lack of coverage and Eurosport answered, that in the year of the FIFA World Cup, they prefer to broadcast the Africa Cup. The guy who is in charge of the German Federation said that he was disappointed and that it's because most men who make the decisions at Eurosport, know nothing about Figure Skating.

    And apparently Eurosport gets good viewing figures when they broadcast figure skating. Which is kind of surprising to me.

    I have no objection to showing African Cup of Nations matches - obviously many people are interested in this event, and yes, it is a World Cup year (though surely they are aware that it's also an Olympic year?! ).

    What does annoy me is that Eurosport is not showing live skating in the evening, in order to broadcast, among other things, taped horse jumping, taped golf, Planet Amrstrong, tennis magazines, and god knows what else. Live events should come first; why couldn't they show the horse jumping after the end of the pairs FS?

    I think it is a concious choice to show the taped events just after the actual live events because Chris mentioned it was a way for the network to save on expenditures made to broadcast it (live vs not live). What is more annoying though is that they only show the top 5 in the LP now, meaning just the last group!! Even if it's live, look at the time schedule for men, starting at 21.50 that means only the final group!!! What is this? Besides, last nite they showed the taped version of mens SP top 6 but it was not announced anywhere as far as I remember. It's like they don't give a fiddler's fart.

    I got an answer from Eurosport Nordic. No real answers, other than that Europeans is at the same time as Australian open, Africa cup and other olympic winter sports like biathlon, ski jumping etc. (My point was that these other winter sports are world cup competitions, not championships.) I read this as they can't afford the cost of Europeans too.

    As for OG and world's they say that "there will be broadcasts from all competitions again." Nothing about LIVE.

    I am not that surprised. It's the "silent women masses" who watch FS. If broadcasters learned to see this, and made use of it, they would get more interest for their products. The lack of figure skating in TV and other medias is for sure a gender issue.
