    As to what US Sports will cover:

    Universal Sports will broadcast every event with more than 14 hours of television coverage. Primetime coverage begins April 27 at 6 p.m. ET with the men's and pairs short programs. The broadcast team includes Andrea Joyce (play by play), 1984 Olympic silver medalist Peter Carruthers (men's and pairs analyst), 1998 Olympic champion Tara Lipinski (ladies analyst) and Judy Blumberg (ice dancing analyst).
    I thought Judy did a nice job with 4CC's, so I'm glad she'll be doing it!

    I guess there's no limit to what they can show on cbcsports.ca. If the main network doesn't have much I don't mind watching online (I don't get bold).

    Tweet to me from PJ Kwong yesterday when I asked her about Worlds coverage:

    "@skatingpj...they will be shown on CBC - sked should be out soon - and will also be on CBC's BOLD in its entirety...pj "

    So it sounds like 100% coverage as normal on bold and then some on CBC!

    What would 'Artistry' Fans do if the SPs are not shown on TV? They would have deliriom tremons(sp) until the LP is shown. The greatest of Art since the classic periods. Just kidding

    btw. How much in a given competition will great artistry emerge? Will 10 skaters show it?

    Define artistry

    If you are talking about sequins, short dresses and tight pants along with endless renditions of "Carmen," "Phantom of the Opera" and "Requiem for a Dream," then YES, CoP skating is chock full of artistry.

    Trewyn, I'm in the U.S. Virgin Islands and can't access Universal Sports because it seems to think I'm a foreign country. Not true, but that's another story. Anyway, I have an Icenetwork subscription and I was able to sign up for the $4.95 worlds programming. In the states/province list, it says non U.S./Canada at the very bottom. Click that and then click your country, New Zealand.
