    TV Coverage

    2145-0230 World Figure Skating: Men's Free
    0230-1430 World Figure Skating: Men's Free Repeat (red button only)


    For those of us who no longer have Eurosport International since it went digital.
    (And who get frustrated by unreliable streams).

    Waiting for the rest of the live BBC online/red button coverage to be announced (for Sat or Sun). But disappointing that BBC is only beginning coverage from Friday onwards when the event starts on Wednesday.
    I have been 'searching' the website and can't find anything at all:-(

    I saw an advert last week on Eurosportplayer uk when watching the World Juniors that they were covering it and finally found a schedule for that http://tv.eurosport.co.uk/tvschedule.shtml

    First coverage seems to be 3 hours Live on Wednesday 13th March
    23:00 UK time GMT
    Figure skating
    Live Figure Skating World Champs - Ontario - Men's Short (180min)

    I watched the Juniors on my tablet and there were a couple of streaming hickups about two in an hour where I lost about 15 secs :-(?which I assumed were my tablet but I haven't had any 'freezes' on any other sports watching Australian open was fine, maybe the streaming glitches depend on where the original feed comes from? I will probably give it a try..

    I'm not used to watching Skating live will 3 hours cover the whole of the event?

    As I posted just before your post - NBC will NOT be broadcasting any Worlds coverage during the week of competition. Here is their schedule for the following week -

    SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 2013 - NBC

    Noon – 2 p.m.

    WORLD FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS (taped)

    Commentators: Terry Gannon, Scott Hamilton, Andrea Joyce

    This pretty much happened last year too, if I remember correctly. Only Universal Sports will be streaming and broadcasting live competition. Here is the schedule -

    Universal Sports

    DATE ONLINE TIME (live – ET) TV TIME (ET) EVENT

    Wed., 3/13 11:00am-3:00pm 12:00pm-3:00pm Pairs Short Program (LIVE)

    Is there any possibility to watch the Pairs Short Program live from Germany? Are there any live streams available?

    3 hours minimum is needed to complete each event, but if you're watching on Eurosport live, I'm sure they'll stay with it till the end, especially as it'll be in the middle of the night for European viewers.

    thankyou. why is there so little coverage when they cover gp events?

    and ty for time reminder...its spring ahead fall back-as my mum taught me.

    I get mad that CBC geoblocks us. Those TV morons think we want the KKK Klan or crap and refuse to broadcast skating for a new fan base. Positively makes me furious. Cable bill doubled and I cant see FS biggest competitions.

    yall know I mean the three Kardash girls not the Klu Klu, right

    edit for clarification

    Firstly, sorry that this is a bit later than I would normally wait to post the schedules. But, you can blame the BBC for that! I had to wait to until today to get next Sunday’s BBCi schedule, as my digital terrestrial box only gives listings for 7 days, and no-where else gives the complete schedule for that channel.

    I have just gone through the Europsort schedules and there is a lot of variation depending on which version of Eurosport you are watching.

    The LIVE coverage is the same on International and Deutschland. (And before you ask, I have no idea why they have split the coverage of the Ladies Free into 2 programmes! I suspect it is just for the schedules and that the coverage will actually be continuous.)

    Eurosport France is mostly the same except that their LIVE coverage of the Free Dance is starting an hour earlier. ESP France also has a few extra highlights programmes compared to International and Deutschland.

    The big difference is on British Eurosport. We in the British Isles are getting no-where near the coverage that the rest of “Eurosportland” is getting, be it in terms of LIVE coverage or just highlights.

    Now, before you start complaining about snooker, whilst the PTC Grand Final in Galway is having an effect, there is also LIVE tennis to contend with (I take it that means we will not be having Simon Reed commentating on the skating, then)

    As for the BBC, well their coverage looks more comprehensive, except that it doesn’t start until Friday!

    I should warn you that, from past experience, the schedule for BBCi should be taken with a rather large pinch of salt. It NEVER keeps to schedule, and the listings are NEVER updated to reflect changes. To further cause annoyance, if a live event over-runs its allotted time, BBCi frequently cuts away from it regardless at the scheduled time, even if it is just to something silly like something on a loop, or a test card.

    Speaking of things on loops, don’t get too excited about the very long coverage (12 hours) of the Men’s FS on Saturday. What it means is that the coverage is on a loop and the people putting up the listings couldn’t be bothered working out detailed start and finish times. This is normal for BBCi listings.

    BBCi is available via:

    Digital terrestrial (UK only): Ch. 301 on Freeview
    Digital cable (UK only): pressing the red button on a BBC channel? (I don’t have cable, so I’m not sure)
    Digital satellite (Europe):
    Astra 28.2E, Transponder 45 (10.773H. MBaud 22,000. FEC 5/6).
    NOTE: The channel you want for the skating is labelled “6390

    BBC HD is available via:

    Digital terrestrial (UK only): Ch. 102 on Freeview
    Digital cable (UK only): Ch. 187 on Virgin Media
    Digital satellite (Europe):
    Ch. 169 on SkyDigital – Astra 28.2E, Transponder 50 (10.847V. MBaud 22,000. FEC 5/6).

    BBC2 is available via:

    Digital terrestrial (UK only): Ch. 102 on Freeview
    Digital cable (UK only): Ch. 102 on Virgin Media
    Digital satellite (Europe):
    BBC2 England (Ch. 969 on SkyDigital) – Astra 28.2E, Transponder 45 (10.773H. MBaud 22,000. FEC 5/6).
    BBC2 Scotland (Ch. 970 on SkyDigital) – Astra 28.2E, Transponder 47 (10.803H. MBaud 22,000. FEC 5/6).
    BBC2 Wales (Ch. 971 on SkyDigital) – Astra 28.2E, Transponder 46 (10.788V. MBaud 22,000. FEC 5/6).
    BBC2 Northern Ireland (Ch. 972 on SkyDigital) – Astra 28.2E, Transponder 48 (10.818V. MBaud 22,000. FEC 5/6).

    Hopefully all this will help us to try to get the most coverage that we can

    that's why I have no TV!!!. The only problem is that I have to watch all events on line and sometimes it is hard when (stupid) cable companies decide not to put some events on line.

    Anyone know who is doing the commentary for Universal Sports? Just curious. When they covered Euros and 4CC, they didn't even have commentators, just someone to announce the skaters' names, and it was obvious she knew nothing about figure skating nor was she very interested in it.

    Does anybody have the Russian coverage details? Apparently two channels will be showing it and both are available through TVTeka.

    For those who have DirecTV but DO NOT have access to Universal Sports because they do not have the right sports package -

    DirecTV is offering a free trial of Universal Sports from 3/10 - 3/19 on channel 625.

    No but all channels are available through tvteka.com for 12$ per month (non recurring). Both live and on-demand later. There's also a free trial but it usually takes a while to kick in so I wouldn't bet on that.
