    Universal Sports?

    Does anyone know if Universal Sports will be offering online streaming of Worlds? I know that I could probably get it on Rosiyah 2 through WebTV, but the WebTV player does not get along well with my anti-virus software. It thinks that WebTV 3.4.0 is a virus and won't let it run until I disable my anti-Virus software. AVG thinks that WebTV 3.4.0 is a virus, so I am looking for something else other than WebTV where I will not have to shutdown my antivirus software to watch.

    corporate battle for carrying this or that blah blah..... people lose interest when they're not committed.

    I hope so, but .... I'll search for that Turkish TV feed before I "surprise" myself enough to find it on Universal.

    Such a shame. Boooooooooooo

    The Universal Sports schedule is up. I wasn't able to post a link so check out the figure skating page on Universal Sports. Worlds will be streamed live and will also be on TV.

    Turkish Tv doesn't broadcast figure skating anymore. You might as well look for other options now.

    The icenetwork is also live streaming Worlds online I think. If so, which is better - Universal Sports or Icenetwork?

    I got Icenetwork for 4 continents - dead silent, no commentators. Then found out I could have gotten 4 continents on Universal Sports with the commentators that was televised. Wonder if Universal Sports (which is also live streaming) will have the televised version.

    skaterdelightgs, welcome to Golden Skate! We hope you post long and often!

    Sometimes IN has commentary, but not always; mostly for US Nationals.

    Just saw today on the 24th that Universal sports is offering a free trial period during the exact dates of worlds!! So, for directv customers you dont have to pay the 12 bucks a month charge. I did that last year and had an awful time canceling it after worlds. It's such a racket with directv. Interesting that they are giving it free during worlds.
