    British Eurosport Schedule

    I have just checked the British Eurosport schedule and it is very disappointing, very poor coverage once again.

    Wednesday 15th
    BESP 2 19.30 to 21.00 - Short dance
    BESP 1 23.00 - 30 min highlights of short dance

    Thursday 16th
    BESP 2 19.00 to 21.00 - Free Dance
    BESP 1 23.00 - 30 min highlights of free dance

    Friday 17th
    BESP 2 19.00 to 21.00 - Ladies Free
    BESP 1 23.00 - 30 min highlights of ladies free

    Saturday 18th
    BESP 2 19.30 to 21.00 - Mens Free (not live)
    BESP 1 23.00 - 30 min highlights of mens free

    Sunday 19th
    BESP 2 20.30 - 22.15 Gala
    BESP 1 22.15 - 30 min highligts of gala.

    No coverage (even highlights) of the Pairs event, very very disappointing. I would even take highlights of the Free programme but they can't even provide that. Even for the other live events we are not getting the full event, I wonder what we will get from in Sochi? Not expecting the best.

    Ah, somebody got in before me!

    I was planning on making out the post about schedules tomorrow morning, so I haven't checked all the listings yet. But, given that there is Tennis and Snooker tournaments both on this week, I was expecting the skating coverage to be very small.

    I'm not sure, but I think it is only British Eurosport that has the rights to the tennis. So, we might be lucky and find that the other versions of Eurosport show more coverage of the skating than British.

    I'll find out in the morning when I go through all the websites.

    So, I reckon that спорт-2 will be our best bet for comprehensive coverage (if somebody can find a stream that isn't geo-blocked to the UK...!!!)

    Well, I can tell you now what we will get from Sochi - NOTHING! Eurosport are not showing the Olympics this time round, I'm afraid. See this comment I posted in the media rights thread a couple of weeks ago:

    Sorry to be the barer of bad news.

    British Eurosport dumped the Europeans last year. Even worse coverage this year.
    Just awful.
    PLEASE contact British Eurosport & complain.
    I like Tennis but don't want OR need 18 hours a day of it.

    As you all probably know by now, Eurosport is having minimal coverage of the Europeans this year This is largely due to the Australian Open tennis in the mornings and afternoons, and the London Masters snooker in the afternoon and evenings. All the Winter Sports they show are having to be fitted around these, and it is the Figure Skating that is missing out.

    For a change, all versions of Eurosport are doing the same amount of coverage during the Championships. The only differences are with the middle-of-the-night highlights programmes.

    British Eurosport are showing them half-an-hour later than the other versions of Eurosport (BES 1 is providing a buffer of 30minutes between the LIVE snooker and the Dakar Rally, just in case the snooker over-runs).

    On Eurosport France, the highlights for the Short Dance will be 1 hour instead of 30 minutes, while the 30m highlights for the Free Dance will be on Friday afternoon instead of Thursday night.

    I take it you were looking at the BES listings. Well, if you look at the listings for Eurosport Deutschland instead, their descriptions for the Sunday programmes say they will cover both the Pairs Free and the Gala. Which I suppose is something.

    And given that the Sunday evening programme is being broadcast at exactly the same time on all versions of Eurosport, I assume that it will be the exact same coverage on all versions. I know it is dangerous to assume where Eurosport’s concerned, but hopefully it will be right to do so in this case!

    In conclusion, if you want watch everything, find a livestream of спорт-2 on the internet, and then flick over to Eurosport when your language service starts their LIVE broadcasts!

    That's what I'll be doing!

    Sorry, but the German Eurosport shows an average of 17 hours of Tennis from the Australian Open per day. And that's not even counting in Esp2, which does the same. So it should be similar for all other Eurosports except B.Esp.

    We have the same amount of EC coverage here as in the UK, a.k.a. "SP? what's that?"

    Yeah, I know that now. I found out about the Tennis this morning when I looked through all the schedules that I use to make out my usual Eurosport schedule list... which I posted a few seconds before you posted your comment!!!

    But 17 hours is rediculous, isn't it?! Even the most hard-core fan would find it hard sitting through that much!

    (Says the guy who spent the whole of Christmas week watching figure skating pretty much non-stop!)

    Aha. Ha. Ahahahahahhahahahhahah!

    I can't decide which is funnier:
    "In case the snooker over-runs", or
    "a buffer of 30minutes"

    (As if Snooker will not overrun.
    As if 30 minutes is even remotely enough "buffer" for said overruns).

    I am shocked that Eurosport are not showing the olympics, they have been such good supporters of the winter sports for years. I assumed from all their Road to Sochi ads that they were broadcasting it again. I really enjoyed their London 2012 coverage.

    I would be something if the Sunday evening broadcast would show the Pairs free but if it is combined with the gala it might only be the final flight. The scheduling seems a bit strange, would it not have been better to have the Mens free Saturday afternoon and the Pairs free Saturday evening just like the schedule for the rest of the week.

    It was the only chance to see the lower-ranked skaters. So sad how bad British Eurosport treats the Europeans. It's been l.ike this for three years now.
    Also, when they get the chance to show a bit of skating we have missed they just repeat something we have already seen.
    I bet the Monday highlights program will just show the three main shows from the week & not the Pairs event.
    Who makes these decisions ?.

    The Italian broadcast has always shown everything from the very first skater but this year they decided to skip the first two hours =___=

    Very Funny!!!

    But, I suppose we should think ourselves lucky that the Europeans are starting today and not yesterday.

    There was a power cut in the area of London where the Masters snooker is being held. So, the afternoon session did not start until 1h20m after it was scheduled to. And it was a long match!

    If that had happened later in the week, the LIVE evening coverage of the skating would be starting even later than it already is!

    Somebody who wants to brag about how many sports they have the rights to, without taking into consideration that they have only 2 channels to shove them all into, and there are only 24 hours in a day...

    Eurosport have forgotten that it is quality, not quantity that is important.


    By the way, if you want to take part in the Predictions Game for Europeans, you have less than 2 hours left to get your predictions in, i.e. until 09:30 CET (08:30 GMT)

    Here is the thread: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?43719

    I'm just getting a bit concerned about the number of entries for the Europeans Round of the Predictions Game.

    For anybody that is planning on doing predictions for Olympics and Worlds, just remember that Europeans and Four Continents are part of the same Game. So, if you don't join in for Euros or 4CC, you will be starting on the back foot compared to those that are playing.

    We are in an Olympic season, they should give more spaces to Olympic sports... With all the respect, who cares about snooker (at least outside GB).. And considering how long a snooker game is, they could show highlights of it instead of figure skating
