    Schedule & TV Streams Winter Olympics

    Here is the link for the figure skating schedule that is on the BBC website:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/winter-ol...figure-skating

    You have to go through each day individually, so I have put it all together into a list like I usually do for Eurosport's coverage of the other Championships.

    Unfortunately, the BBC’s listings do not tell you which channel or livestream each event will be shown on. The only TV listings the BBC have on the website are for their normal terrestrial channels, and they only go up to next Friday.

    When the details of the livestreams become available, I will paste them into the list below.

    I am hoping that some, if not all, of the BBC livestreams will appear on the Freeview and Sky EPG's at the start of next week, as then we might have proper listings so that we can plan things out and set timers.

    But, as soon as I find anything out, I will post it in this thread.

    Am pretty annoyed to see that neither the (Dutch) NOS or the BBC bother with the team figure skating next Thursday. At least I cannot find anything about it in the TV guides listings. I had assumed that since there are only a few sports on that day, they would air it live. No such luck.
    I hope the livestreams are running on Thursday already!

    The BBC plan to only show 2 extra channels in SD but 6 in HD.
    I can't afford HD yet so I'm losing hope of watching all the skating.

    My TV EPG is listing the skating team events on the Thursday on BBC red button (channel 301) from 15.30 - 18.55 and 18.55 - 22.00 so we may have a chance to see some (all?) of Thursday's skating! Not managed to find an online schedule for what is being shown on red button at other times though.

    If you put figure skating into the BBC website and choose TV & Radio Programmes (under categories on the LHS) you can see when there might be skating shown on BBC 2 (and hence iplayer). It is only showing listings for 8th and 9th of Feb so far and only seems to show BBC 2 stuff (not all live) and not anything on red button.

    I wish the BBC website was clearer about what is being shown when.

    I was just there to write down times. I no longer get TSN so this is going to be a pain in the butt for me. I will have to catch the Olympic Daytime slots for most of the FS.

    I'm hoping to watch the events live on NBC Sports Channel, but have a somewhat silly question - does anyone know the approximate times for event completion - meaning about how long the SPs and LP (or SD and FDs) are - like 2 hours, 3, 4 - just trying to figure out if I will have to sign up for online and sneak some at work time to view the comps live. Thanks.

    I hope the posts below from the OG figure skating schedule thread will help. You will have to convert the Sochi local times to your time zone.

    Do you know if CBC will stream Olympics on the internet or does it only on shows it on TV?

    I read that CBC would have twelve streams going at some points.

    The EPG on my Freeview box only does 7 days, so I waited until today to check it. And, I just had a look through, and the listings and their descriptions do not make sense at all.

    Here are the figure skating listings for BBCi1 (Channel 301 on Freeview)

    Thursday 6th February 2014
    BBCi1 15:30 – 18:55 Team Competitions
    BBCi1 18:55 – 22:00 Team Competitions

    Saturday 8th February 2014
    BBCi1 15:30 – 18:00 Men's, Ladies and Ice Dance Free Programmes


    I assume that the listings for Thursday mean they are going to show the Men's and Pairs SP's Live, and then repeat them at 18:55.

    However, I cannot work out what they are showing on Saturday. For a start, the description is completely wrong. The Free Programmes for these categories are not until Sunday! It is the Short Dance, the Ladies SP and the Pairs FS that are being held on Saturday.

    But, are they going to have LIVE coverage starting in the middle of the Short Dance, and then show all the Ladies SP LIVE, but not show the Pairs FS at all?

    Are they going to use the 2.5 hour broadcast window to just show highlights of the Short Dance and the Ladies SP?

    From past experience of the BBCi channels, anything could be the case, and you have no way of finding out until it is on!

    Also, there is no mention in the Freeview listings of any figure skating between Saturday and Wednesday! Like, these are the days when the Team competitions are finishing, and the Individual competitions are starting.

    So, I don't know. The best bet might be to just keep an eye on the BBC's online livestreams whenever you know there is supposed to be figure skating on, as the TV listings seem to be totally unreliable.

    COME BACK EUROSPORT, ALL IS FORGIVEN!!!

    Good news! Do you have the link of the stream? I'm not going to be home during the day, but I'm hoping to catch some of the events on my computer. Thanks for the help
