Will the Nationals be on Youtube
Tried to watch the Chen girl, slowed down like Nathan Chen, the video that is. how is this being done?
I can't find any of the ladies sp skates and the juniors are slowed down-something blocking them...what is it with usfsa? we saw other events-videos posted asap. anyone got some good links? i'm searching...thankyou.
I think Ice Network owns the rights at least for now. They have been vigilantly taking down videos. I would not count on being able to see the ladies SP on youtube until at least the end of this season i.e. Worlds. It has nothing to do with USFSA other than that they have sold the rights to Ice Network.

In our era, it seems you can find so much on youtube, stream TV programs for free, etc.
But finding ice skating coverage is like mining for secret information - tricking geoblocking, listening to Estonian TV, installing Japanese streaming applications! How does the USFSA plan on raising the sport’s obscure status, if it takes so much effort to follow it? I was actually watching happily the GPF from 2011 on New Year’s Eve, instead of partying, on Universal Sports, when at midnight - the channel disappeared!
So frustrating. I found ONE video of Caroline up right now. What are people who don’t have icenetwork supposed to do? Any ideas? I don’t love the sport enough to pay for icenetwork, because I speak russian and stream all their coverage for other events. Who holds the copyright to youtube videos of Nationals anyway?
Thanks in advance.
It is not that Ice Network owns the right to the youtube video- it is that the video that people post on youtube is owned by Ice Network.

People are posting copyrighted material on YouTube. They don't have the authority to do so - thsu, removed.
As others have mentioned, NBC and Ice Network are paying for broadcast rights so they can make money from advertisements or subscription fees. If the USFSA or anyone makes video available, they are interefering with what NBC and Ice Network owns - broadcast rights.
NBC will have coverage on Saturday afternoon and evening, as well as the next 2 Sunday afternoons. This just reminds me of the 80's when the most of the competitions would be over before airing on tv - just harder to avoid the spoilers now.
Exactly. The videos taken from IN and posted on Youtube are basically STOLEN. They're giving a paid service over to a free service WITHOUT PERMISSION. I know this is becoming a foreign concept in the entitlement era the Internet has us in, but you can't always get something for nothing. Nor should you.
