    ^ Yes, it's so strange. In Denmark, Eurosport 2 will only show Men and Ladies FS live, and gala delay. They don't even plan to show the other segments later.

    So illegal streams and videos on youtube are our only options, but that hardly seems to be a smart way to keep interest in figure skating floating. Couldn't ISU be allowed to not geo-block those segments to us, instead of letting Eurosport hog them?

    I would think ISU practically owns the footage since they own the competition. How do national broadcast rights prevent them from showing it online? Don't the networks buy the rights to air them on tv from the ISU?

    The more difficult it is to get access to the broadcast, the more put off people are to watch the sport. Out of sight, out of mind.

    Illegal for the sender, but not for the viewer. Unless you are in Japan or the Phllippines, it is not illegal to view the streams.
