    www.universalsports.com is listed as carrying all of Skate America live online. You have to register but there is no charge. It will also be carried on selected cable channels.

    http://www.universalsports.tv for cable listings.

    Well....was suprised by this a bit.

    I sort of forgot that universalsports.com carries figure skating now

    I wonder if they will just do Skate America and more importantly if there is commentary and who will do it

    From what I've heard no commentary. I've never been on the site before except to register so I hope the information I got was correct.

    Try some proxy ip software.
    www.hide-my-ip.com

    This software will assign you an American IP address to your computer, and therefore you'll be able to watch programs restricted in the US. It has a 3-day trial period, so time your schedule.

    Awesome! Does anyone know if this will also be available on-demand? I won't be able to watch live. Also, any info on if they'll be carrying the rest of the grand prix? I won't be paying for ice network.

    They are carrying the entire Skate America competition. I'm guessing they are seeing how it goes for SA before deciding if they carry the rest of the grand prix events. I subscribed to icenetwork and this is my backup.

    And they are already not playing nice. An article on Evan accompanied by a not so flattering pic of Johnny. Must be that rivalry thing.

    Well, I just e-mailed them asking if they will carry the rest of the GP series as well so hopefully I will get a reply because as of right now I can't afford to renew my subscription to icenetwork

    Lucky for me, I have universal sports on my cable system so I can watch it live on television and not online!!! I can also record it and keep watching it over and over again. I am assuming that they will have someone commentating (is that a word???) on the television broadcast.

    Also for people who have cable...go to the website and see if you cable provider has this channel and if they have it in your area. They do have it here in the Philadelphia area, comcast channel 249.

    I think Icenetwork is having some kind of technical sound snafu where the commentators are sitting in the studio somewhere and their voice over is the only sound that's making it through the live feed. I sincerely hope that when the video on demand comes up that they've managed to capture the competition audio and managed to incorporate it into the video.

    Bleh!!!
