    TV coverage of 4CCs

    Is there any possibility for European Skating fans to watch 4CCs?

    So far I've only found coverage on

    - Universal Sports

    - IN

    - ISU skating channel: http://livemanager.eurovision.edgesu...pay/index.html

    But none of it works for me, because I'm blocked out on each of them. It's very annoying, because I'm actually willing to spend money on the coverage (regardless of the channel).

    Eurosport isn't covering 4CCs. Is a Russian TV station, CCTV or a Japanese TV station covering it? Or do I have to wait until a kind soul puts it on youtube?

    I just checked. CCTV5 will have live broadcast. Finger crossed for access.

    Jsport-4 will broadcast LIVE boys and girls. But this channel is not available online to my knowledge.

    How come we Europeans can't watch 4CC on ISU's PPV channel? Has anyone bought the rights? I live in Denmark and can't imagine that someone would have done that.

    A few years ago, there was a Turkish television station that was broadcasting skating events. I think they were available everywhere.

    I read in another forum now that Fuji TV also plans to air 4CC.

    The supposed live broadcast times by CCTV5 do not correspond to the event schedule.

    Why should N. American non IN customers stay past midnight to watch an event in the US, live or close to live? Not fair!

    I hope CCTV will make some corrections.

    eta. I got this Beijing time schedule from a Chinese forum:

    Feb 10
    Men SP 09:45

    Feb 11
    Ladies SP 04:00
    Men LP 10:00

    Feb 12
    Pairs SP 04:00
    Dance SP 06:30
    Ladies LP 10:00

    Feb 13
    Pairs LP 03:00
    Dance LP 05:45
    Gala 10:00

    This Beijing Time live schedule does not match CCTV5 live broadcast times. Come on, now, CCTV, live means live.

    Fuji won't show LIVE, unlike Jsport: http://www.fujitv.co.jp/sports/figur...012/index.html
    But again unlike Jsport, Fuji TV is available on KeyHole to watch online. The quality is not so good though.

    CBC will be showing some in Canada on TV over the weekend. They may also have online streaming, but I'm noy 100% sure of that.

    According to this time table

    CNTV will be doing some full live-cast while CCTV5 will stream portions. Quite a week for Chinese skating fans with 3 days of re-cast of GP SA, TEB, and GPF before the 4CC.

    I believe CCTV5 can be accessed. Both can be viewed via SOP and maybe some other means.

    The schedule converted to EST:

    Men SP
    Feb 10 CNTV 9:45 - 14:20 ---> 8:45 PM (Feb 9)- 1:20 AM (Feb 10)
    Feb 10 CCTV5 12:30 ---> 11:30 PM (Feb 9)

    Ladies SP
    Feb 11 CNTV 3:45 - 8:30 ---> Feb 10 2:45 PM - 7:30 PM

    Men LP
    Feb 11 CNTV 9:45 - 14:30 ---> 8:45 PM (Feb 10) - 1:30 AM (Feb 11)
    CCTV5 12:30 ---> 1130 PM (Feb 10)

    Pairs SP, Dance SP, and Ladies LP
    Feb 12 CNTV 03:45 - 14:20 ---> Feb 11 2:45 PM - 1:20AM (Feb 12)

    Replay
    Feb 12 CCTV5 8:35 Pairs SP ---> Feb 11 7:35 PM
    Feb 12 CCTV5 14:55 Ladies LP ---> 1:55 AM

    It's great for most skating fans that more countries are involved in the sport and more interested and invested as their skaters are doing well. The Chinese network won't be showing Dance LP but now they showing Men with Nan Song and other young ones showing great potential and winning chances. The more broadcasts and livestreaming there are, the more we are likely to get to watch live and complete competitions.
