Newbie Questions re Icenetwork Season Pass & US Figure Skating Membership
I am a GoldenSkate newbie (and new to the world of figure skating in general), so I apologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong forum. I have a couple of quick questions, and would love to get input from those of you with knowledge / experience!
Icenetwork Season Pass: Can anyone tell me which season pass I need to see footage / clips of the 2014 US Nationals? I think you need to buy the premium pass to stream the event live, but do I also need it to watch clips now? Their website is unclear, and since anything I buy now is only good through August, I would really rather not pay the premium price unless I have to. Also, I looked at some threads from last fall and noticed that a lot of people were unhappy with the new interface, lack of archived materials, and customer service. Have things improved?
US Figure Skating Membership: I am not and never will be a competitive figure skater! I just started taking an adult basic skills classes (I'm falling A LOT but love it!) and was wondering if becoming a USFSA club member was worth it. I know that last year members got a discount on the Icenetwork season pass and that you get Skating magazine. The place I bought my skates from said membership is mostly useful for competitive skaters. What do you think?
Thanks for any light you can shed!
