Winnie_20, Welcome to Golden Skate! Post long and often
And that is a good question. It might have something to do that Eurosport in different countries carry different things, but all use the same search database?
The assumption would be that my process as a TV watcher would be:
1. When is that figure skating on?
2. The search function says Wedsnesday at 5 pm.
3. Check my local Eurosport listings. Snooker.
4. Rats. Snookered again
5. Check Russian Eurosport for Wednesday AHH! There it is. Now how do I get it..
I guess I have become a bit annoyed with their idea of TV listings. ;-) Over here (Holland), it seems ESP2 like to air a lot of German soccer when there is figure skating on the schedule. Yuck.
Thanks for the welcome! I have been lurking for a while. Have slowly but surely become hooked on watching live figure skating these past six or so years, and this weekend I finally went to see a competition live. (The Challenge Cup. Wanted to go the NRW Trophy in Dortmund to see Yuna Kim, but alas, couldn't get a ticket).
It taught me a lot, not least of which that it's very cold when you sit so close to the skating rink, and I have the deepest respect for the judges etc.. So, so cold, phew! And I had no idea how fast those skaters really go across the ice, wow!
