Thank you Dramahkween, (And my Facebook friend, Ira!)
Just going to re-post this with labels for which stream is which.
The first five links all go to different pages that show the exact same stream of Eurosport International 1 (so, if one goes down, they all go down! ):
For times for when Eurosport International is on air, see the schedule for Eurosport Deutschland in my post in the other Nebelhorn thread
I'm just getting a black screen on the following pages, so they may be geo-blocked:
Not getting a screen at all on this page (not even a blank one!), so it may be geo-blocked, or just not working:
The following is a torrent, and I don't want to download the required software, so I don't know if it works or not.

Hope this helps make things clearer

Ladies SP Thursday
I have to make a small addition to my previous post as the technical delegation has been moved to the middle of the ice so no more blocking by Camera´s and Juulia cant sneak through her combination anymore.
Group 1 Warm up is on all Skaters present
Combo was ok-ish, small struggle. Did run out of steam a bit at the end.
Nice programm good ice coverage, but might could go a bit more into the "danger zone". Jumps were ok, but quite early in the programm - she was reliefed when she did land her last!
Cow Bells at Oberstdorf, her programm was not bad - sadly she fell on ther last jump. 3-2 combo
Really lovely Programm, she went into that danger zone a lot more. She sticked to the plan and did a 3-2 combo, the last jump required a lot of work but she did it! I did it my way was here skating music and she just did it her way, really great program, lovesd the step sequence a lot - she just did it her way and had that fitting expressing to that on her face.
Aww, she has such a lovely program I really loved her expression on the face when the middle part of the music hit, with those haunting vocals. She was smiling all over her face! Sadly she was also almost crying when she couldnt perform her combo ... only 1 valid jump for her and she really had to try hard to hold her act´s together at the kiss & cry. Poor thing...
She had a great ice coverage and performed her elements spread over the whole ice, very clean jumps as well - very enjoyable SP.
Oh Dear, what happened? She looked so solid the past 2 days and now she seemed to have struggled with her nerves quite a lot. She is a wonderfull personality and skater, but today wasnt her day even though she never stopped smiling.
I probably sound like a broken record, but the step sequence is fantastic and very much in sync with the music. Loved her "Carmen" outfit as well!
First jump was 2 footed, in general the programm wasnt going so well for her and she seemed to be quite in a hurry all the time.
Great attitude on the ice, it was like she wanted to ask you for a dance which is a cool thing, I mean women can ask guys too right? Throughout the programm a nice connection with the crowd and she definately had a great harmony in music and choreographie. Sadly the jumps were a bit of a disaster...
She also tried to keep the connection with the crowd, btw. there are quite "a lot" of people here now. When Miki skate it was really crowded and I hope people will come back to support the other skaters as well.
Inga 45.74 SB
Inga, Inga... you are really a great Skater and I love watching you, but you could really smile a bit more. It is a bit like she would skate in her own world which is a shame. Nevertheless a very clean program, the ice coverage could be stronger though. Also to note is her dress, red with a golden belt and bracers - looked lovely. She needs to work hard on her "B" note in my opinion, you can do it Inga!
Alina 41.40 SB
I liked her piorett´s, if you consider her size and all that quite an achievement. Combo was clean as well.
I like her programm because she interacts with the crowd and not only the judges. She comes very close to you so that you could theoretically shake her hand. I was told she is originally from the USA, but she totally does look like a person from India to me.
Elizaveta 50.93 SB
Great program, clean jumps and good ice coverage, loved her green dress but I wish she would be a bit more outgoing. She is so shy...
She was finished quite early with her program, combo looked clean to me, also a nice coverage of the ice.
Her first jump was quite shacky, the sun did shine not only on her Federation dress. She is a nice skater in my opinion.
Not entirely sure what to make out of her skate to be honest, same goes for the jury that really needed a lot of time for their judgement this time.
Wow that was really shocking, there just was too much pressure on her small shoulders. Damn! She was wearing a lovely dress with a big flame, her starting position was great as well so was her ice coverage and you could feel the heat when she was very close by. I definately believed her that she was borning, at least inside as she just doesnt smile a lot sadly. She is more the introverted type of person, but I am 100% sure that she understood her role in that programm. But, yes there is always a but... the jumps just didnt work.
I felt it was inappropiate to play Candy Men while she was sitting on the "cry couch" - as there was no candy today for little Juulia and unless a miracle happens, no spot for Finland at Sochi at least for now.
I love her personality, she is a fighter and when she worked so hard on the combo right infront of me, all you want to do is give her a little push so she keeps going on, but no help was needed - Tina is strong!
Sadly her first triple was really strange, she was almost vertical to the ice - no way that she could land this one and made her name "Stürzinger" at least at this moment some "honor". (Sturz = Fall in german) Her ice coverage was great as well, sadly the judges didnt give her a lot of points :(
Really a lovely programm, I loved it. She was like a feather on the ice, great choregraphie especially the step sequence. She had a little wobble at the end of her Combo but nontheless, really lovely performance by Anne.
Woot what a fantastic skate, I am really really excited! Great choreographie that worked very well with the music. She can Bling Bling too without her green dress :D She performed a 3-3 combo and I loved how she played with the music - she was really into it and I got to say I was as well. She really takes you on a ride that you wont forget so fast - brilliant ice coverage! For me the best programm so far!
Reyna & Lejeanne in a bit
She had her hands infront of the head but that honstly wasnt necessary. It was a nice program! Whatever people say, I think she is really improving but the olympic games are probably out of reach.
She started with her step sequence, which I think is really something else - not in a negative way. Most Skaters do it at the end, once the jumps are all in. She could spread her jumps very well because of this, but unfortunately she didnt execute them that well.
Such an elegant Skater, did you know that she took a break for 4 years until she came back in 2010? She seemed to slip a bit after some of the landings, especially the first jump really wasnt good and she kissed the ice. I would say that she can still qualify, her programm components are always rock solid, but it will require more stable jumps and it depends a bit on how those classified infront of her will do. Good Luck Fleur!
I am honestly impressed with Nathalie, she doesnt seem to have any nerves. That she is a great personality is no secret, her exhibiton skates are really hot and entertaining to watch. In her SP she was a real lady, loved her attitude. Solid jumps, and performance. Looking forward to her LP, but I am sure she will do fine.
Brooklee 48.74 SB
I always like it if a Skater can come up with a new SB or PB. Her programm wasnt as clean as in her practice sessions but nontheless good.
Someone should tell the DJ that you dont play happy music after a not so happy ending on the ice. We heard Saturday Night... Then again, what to play for a young lady that has so much potential but just didnt use it? Anita struggled heavy with her jumps, but she also didnt seem to impress the judges with her program as she only received about 18 points. What a pity, she can do so much more.
Our Cruiser from the morning, well she had a gutsy performance. She even tried a 3-3 but sadly couldnt land it and I guess it was downgraded anyways. What I liked was the flow with the music, her movements were really nice and she fit my personal taste with it.
The Austrian is always trying so hard, but doesnt get the rewards for it that often. I liked her programm, the jumps were well placed within the routine. She did deserve more PC´s in my opinion.
Elena Radionova 64.69
Wow, what a performance. If that young lady isnt a big talent then who is? Her flexibility is incredible, almost like among those "snake women" that you can see in the circus. Her Ice Coverage was the best to me, she really was everywhere, like a little whirlwind. The jumps very well spread and rock solid - the costume fit well to the programm and her performance as well, to me an almost perfect skate.
Almost? Yes, during her routine she was a bit too focused at some points - but afterwards she was smiling and waving and kissing.... a bit more of that during the programm and I think we have a future gold medal winner in the seniors. Choreographie and Interpretation is where she lost points compared to Ando, but she is just 14 so this is not meant as criticsm - especially if you consider that she has it all in her. Seen her Exhibition skate at Milan this year? That shows this very well!
The touch to her head after the programm said it all, it seemed like her brain took a small siesta a few times, causing errors that were really silly and cost her quite some points. But there is still hope and if her head doesnt take a siesta again during the LP then she can buy one of those fancy russian wool heads and book her flight.
She is a very feminin skater, I like watching her. She struggled a bit with her jumps, nontheless a really nice Skater in my opinion.
Her combo was really good, but the other jumps didnt seem to work today. The rest was typical for Sonja, she is just like Fleur a very elegant skater.
Elena Glebova 46.27
I told you before about kitty Elena but she can jump into many different roles. Today she played a film diva of Hollywood - damn she was looking great! Her coach didnt seem to be that impressed though, he demands a lot of her. I always like her performances, yes there are better jumpers but to be honest with you, I just love great attitude and charisma on the ice and she has all that.
Yes! I am so happy about her performance, I knew she had it in her. The jumps rock solid, yes the PC´s could be higher but damn I just love to watch her skate and she really deserves a spot at Sochi! All she needs now is a good LP and I really hope that her nerves wont get into her way! Small girl, big in town gogo Isadora
