    The ISU live stream for people outside of the majors countries with TV coverage is working really good! HD and no video lag or skipping!

    And FREE!


    Go Chinese, German and Canadian Teams!

    Pretty safe bet that K/C and Makarova/Kenchadze will be the ones not to qualify.

    This was the best K/C skated in ages though.

    Almost always there is a free stream to watch a competition. And when there is none, some of us have Eurosport (or in my case, a national tv program which almost always has good live coverage of Europeans, Worlds, 4CC and Olympics). Plus, there are always the youtube videos to watch later. So we who can not afford to pay for a stream don't necessarily watch figure skating casually.

    Their coach is shouting too loud when they spin. Doesn't he think it speaks not for the favour of skaters? I think it surely tells that they can't manage spins without the help from "outside".


    Ziggy is right on $12. It's just reaaly funny how people not from Vietnam or China defend the status of "big money" of 12$ pay. Never mind. Their problem afterall.

    A well known financial advisors has said that once you start thinking that something like five dollars is nothing you have lost a necessary respect for money.

    Amazing, I can get the ISU channel that's geoblocked in the U.S. even though I'm in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

    I love S/H's death spiral entrance. How his leg comes up over her body is amazing.

    Too bad about that hard fall.

    3T - she falls hard, looked <<
    3FTh - very nice
    BoDs
    FCCoSp - unison good
    StSq
    Li

    They're still adorable!

    She made a big mistake on the toe loop, but the other elements looked fine. Choreo a bit more mature, but they did seem to hold back - understandbly because lack of comp.

    She has grown, seems taller and lankier (less that a head shorter than him)

    Shame about the two falls. I don't like the music, and they could use more expression.

    Agreed, and also you have to keep in mind everything is individual. If someone eats out every day and spends $12 or more on their average lunch, ok, probably they can spring $12 if they really wanted to. Some people are not in that position. It is really naive to think they are, be they in Vietnam or the USA or France. There are people who do watch every cent that goes in and out, and that have to. I am not really one of those people, I will not lie. However, I am trying to get out from under student loan debt and do watch every cent I spend. At this time, I would not spend $12 to watch one figure skating competition even if it is worlds. I do not eat out ever. I have not purchased any new clothing in almost a year. It's a matter of priorities and mine is to be out of debt. The expendable income I have I try to put toward that and toward one yearly vacation. I don't think that makes me a casual viewer of figure skating, it just means watching it live (while a priority of mine, actually) is not something I feel comfortable spending extra money to do right now. And I think that is valid.
