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

The is the link to the reply from Eurosport: [URL="http://uk.messages.eurosport.yahoo.com/Winter_Sports/threadview?bn=UKS-WI-general&&tid=2271&mid=2287"]Eurosport Response[/URL]
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.
L'art pour l'art
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 Nordic has the same schedule.

Medusa and KW back in the same week???? AWESOME! welcome back!
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 )
