    Worlds Championship on TV

    For americans, we know Universal Sport will show it. Icenetwork, will not. and many Feeds from other countries are difficult to get. SO.....

    1. Will Universal Sport be LiVE from Russia? - I think it's a nine hour difference.

    2. If taped, how much of it will we get?

    They did show some of the SP for 4CC. Will we get the SPs?

    Will it be just the last group of six? I hope it is the last two groups to skate, or is that just wishful thinking?

    What if Brezina is 7th after the SP and they only show 6?

    There are at least 15 Top Men and at least 7 Top Ladies, we may not see all of them.

    Does anyone have the plans of Unisport for handling this?

    Universal Sports' Worlds TV schedule and live online streaming (for $9.95 - I assume this will include every skater but possibly not the qualifying rounds?) information is not available yet.

    I recommend bookmarking this site - all available information (TV & Internet) will be consolidated here eventually: http://sites.google.com/site/figureskatingnotes/

    Is Universal Sports $9.95 live streaming available if you don't live in the continental United States. I'm in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Thanks.

    Thank you Sylvia. I was hoping you would come up with a consideration. I will check out the site every week if not every day.

    Just speaking for myself, I do not see any need for classifying competitive figure skating. It is what it is. It is not exactly like a baseball game, it is not exactly like a stage performance of Hello Dolly, it is not exactly like a kite-flying contest.

    Figure skating is different from kite-flying in that, although you can enter your kite in the “aerial ballet” category, you can also go for the “power kite” competition, where you try to cut the other guy’s string with yours in the air. Talk about a “real sport!”

    MM - I believe your comments are on the wrong thread.

    and btw, what I am trying to ascertain is what will the program of Universal Sport be? We know that there will be an SP and an LP and FD, but will we see it in its entirety? I do believe if it is taped, we will get an abridged version of the competition.

    TV, no; Internet streaming, hopefully yes.

    Phil Hersh's Globetrotting blog posted yesterday (tried to post a link here but apparently it's not allowed) has details for the (same day delayed) Universal Sports TV and live Internet coverage (Universal Sports for $9.95 and Icenetwork $4.95 for current subscribers) of Worlds in Moscow.

    IceNetwork has the live coverage, from what I can tell UniSports online and on TV will be tape delayed.

    Me too. I'm starting to get nervous. It'll be during hockey playoffs, now, so goodness knows how they'll sandwich it in. I'm hoping for bold to still have extensive coverage.
