    Television?

    Is this being aired at all on any mainstream channel? Like NBC?

    I've flipped through the schedules on NBC and the other (Canadian) channels and can't find a thing.
    I'm assuming USA won't give anyone airing rights and that they're airing it on some obscure American channel, yes?

    Thought I'd double check before scouring my PVR just in case

    NBC on Sunday has the men's LP and the FD Live.

    As far as I can tell, it's only on NBC on Saturday b/c they are airing the Rugby World Cup final on Sunday. My DVR says it's on that day from 3-6 PM EST. Other coverage on TV is scheduled for Universal Sports. Sunday coverage included repeat coverage from 1:30-4:30 PM EST and live coverage from 4:30-7:30 PM EST. IN is covering the SPs live and early groups of the LP and FD on Sat and Sun and will have all events posted online as usual the following week.

    I have not seen any figure skating schedules on there. I can get past geoblocking with the sophisticated subscription proxy I use to get geoblocked content on CBC sports, and have done so in the past, but there nothing shown for Skate America on the CBC site. I have a subscription to Universal's online coverage for the rest of the GP. Why Universal does not include online coverage of Skate America in their GP package is beyond me.

    It's definitely not on CBCsports.ca - not Skate America.

    I seem to think that getting rights to SA is proving next to impossible - so silly!!!

    Anyways, I can PVR the NBC stuff - thanks guys!!!!

    CBC's schedule is here: http://www.cbc.ca/sports/figureskating/broadcast/

    CBC has the rights to the non-Skate Canada ISU events, so they are covering Skate America. CTV has Skate Canada and Nationals, I believe, so finding things this year will be a flip back and forth between broadcasters.....At least they look like they'll all be covered.

    Skate america schedule:
    Sat Oct 22 - 3:00 PM - Championship Figure Skating on CBC: Grand Prix Skate America - Dance Short & Men's Free Programs
    Sun Oct 23 - 2:00 PM - Championship Figure Skating on CBC: Grand Prix Skate America - Women's Short, Pairs Short, and Dance Free Programs

    Universal Sports will probably have it streaming on demand after the event, but you have to pay.
