    Well, Olympic season is over, I am kind of disappointed to see nothing on the Bold schedule. I guess I can cancel my subscription now to buy myself several extra cups of coffee every month

    Gee, gopatrick , don't despair yet ...neither CBC or Skate Canada are renowned for having all the right info up well in advance. According to the listings on Skate Canada, which has been up for couple of months, Bold's programming as covers the same times as CBC..But they've always said "subject to change' notice up as well.
    Now since I'm pretty sure the people who pay for Bold can already get CBC on regular TV right across the country..I don't think this can be the definitive word, and it seems self defeating. Why would Bold pay to have PJ and David duplicating everything that's going on on the main channel ? Usually we'd have her/them for everything up to the part CBC is covering , then they switch over to Kurt, Tracy and (shudder..) Brenda Irving.

    Also, the times listed for CBC coverage on the Saturday, overlap with what should be Hockey coverage. What ? CBC drop Hockey in favour of figure skating ?..when has that ever happened ? It's before the all star break , so... I think some adjustments are probably coming . Failing all else, skatebuzz has been really good about jumping in to fill the void.

    I hope Bold has cleaned up their act. After being so good since they started covering FS, at SC they completely dropped the ball. they hired David to complement PJ then lost the sound for the first hour or more (wa there no tech on site ?) then they cut to commercials and program promos after every single skater, losing the replay and David's accompanying comments..I hope more people besides me raised a hue and cry. ( I didn't get a reply , of course..I just hope it turns out to be a goof -up.)

    I confess I am obsessed and would like to watch everyone
    As a bonus, now Bold offers HD on Channel 548, just not sure whether skating will be broadcasted in HD though.
