    Could Eurosport Be Providing Better Coverage Of The Rescheduled World Championships?

    Somebody emailed Eurosport to find out how they would be covering the rescheduled World Championships. This was Eurosport's reply:-

    "Thank you for your email.
    With regards to the Figure Skating World Championships, our schedules were not confirmed until last week as this event was rescheduled at short notice due to the disasters in Japan. We have tried to fit as much of this event back into our schedules as possible and the full outline for this event is as follows:

    Wednesday 27 April
    1745-2000 LIVE Pairs Short Programme on British Eurosport & Eurosport HD

    Thursday 28 April
    1610-1815 LIVE Pairs Free Programme on British Eurosport & Eurosport HD
    1815-1900 Men’s Free Programme on British Eurosport & Eurosport HD

    Friday 29 April
    1745-1900 LIVE Short Dance on British Eurosport & Eurosport HD

    Saturday 30 April
    1730-1900 LIVE Free Dance on British Eurosport & Eurosport HD

    Sunday 1 May
    2200-2330 Gala Exhibition on British Eurosport & Eurosport HD

    While all information is accurate at the time of writing, schedules are subject to change."


    The is the link to the reply from Eurosport: Eurosport Response

    Hence, no coverage of the men's short and it would appear that they will not be showing any coverage of the ladies event at all

    So the question is, could Eurosports coverage be better?

    A friend of mine has posted this in another forum. I am posting it on this one as they had difficulty in registering on this site.

    No Ladies at all and measly 45 minutes for Mens?

    This poll is a joke, n'est-ce pas? It should be a rant thread, until further changes by Eurosports.

    I probably won't be watching Worlds live on Eurosports but I like hearing from different commentators on youtube.

    eta. I know Great Brittain has no interest in Singles but don't other countries also broadcast Eurosports in different languages?

    Thanks. Unless people protest, nothing is ever going to change. The lack of TV coverage is killing the sport.

    This has to be a joke! Tell me, that I can pay for some Russian TV and watch that... 45 Minutes for the Men? 45 Minutes - and those aren't even live! It's Thursday morning till early afternoon, what else can be so important to broadcast?

    Eurosport a joke (THEY HAVE 2 CHANNELS, WHO IS THE CONTROLLER THERE HE/SHE IS A NIGHTMARE, WHAT IS THE POINT OF EUROSPORT 2)

    SNOOKER IS B***** BORING

    The BBC (also in GB) is also not showing the skating, their schedule of the skating now also seems to have been cut (In particular dropping Barry Davies from the team in 2009).

    I have to say that skating now is dead on TV, and online is the only way.

    The only way we would get full coverage is at the Olympics (every 4 years )
