    So I just rang SBS. Apparently there will be NO BROADCAST AT ALL due to rights issues.

    And yet we're still geoblocked from the ISU stream.

    Angry email will be sent and it just got furious.

    What does it mean “due to rights issues”, did they just buy rights to show highlights?

    I couldn't hear her very well, but she said something about struggling to get the video content so at this rate, there might not even be highlights.

    And yet Skate Canada was totally unblocked - not that I'm complaining! but how are fans, let alone casula viewers, supposed to know what's going on?

    It's utterly ridiculous. I fired off a bunch of angry (or rather, "I'm not angry just disappointed" tone) emails tonight - to SBS, to the ISU, and to Insport. This is a joke. They think that just because we're a little country they can treat us like garbage.

    Never thought it’d occur to me as Taiwan was not on the geo block list till yesterday. ELTA used to broadcast FS events in the past few years and it seems no deal was finalized and ELTA confirmed they don’t have plan this season. Suddenly ISU put Taiwan in the list and said the deal is done but ELTA said its still in mid of negotiation. It’s good to know there’s no legal way for Taiwanese fans to watch these competitions

    It sucks

    I have totally lost my words. Consistancy is what they need, apparently.

    Good for you. Maybe angry message to ISU might work?!
    Time to send compliants to ISU!

    ^ jelly of you, Aussies. And good for you to have spoken up. I'm unclucky again, no VPN or skills for it (isn't it ridiculous how people are more or less forced to get one), and awful Czech TV coverage with no men's SP or pairs SP. But since our glorious TV is planning to include some brief highlights cut, I guess I'm out of luck with contacting ISU as the coverage must be hidden there somewhere for them to make the cut - they just don't bother airing it anywhere. To make the circus complete and me more furious, their commenters keep babbling something about parallel live skating coverages online, but guess what, there are none on their website.
    Suddenly I almost miss Eurosport...
    Well done, ISU, by not even publishing your archived streams, you're doing a massive service to fans who get shafted by their own TV channels... way to make FS popular.

    Is something up with the ISU channel? It's publishing super strange videos...

    But also:

    Full broadcasts from 2018 Worlds and 2019 Worlds!
    Full broadcasts from 2018 GPF!

    Viafree, send 1st day Cup of China here in Finland all free and live, but they do not publish everything afterwards and what they put, is available only 24 hours. If they do not broadcast something, or put the videos and I do not have time to watch live, I use VPN to watch ISU channel and I choose Signapore to make it work.

    I'm happy for the free ISU streams here, but quite a lot of the videos then get hit with copyright claims from what I assume are music companies. So I've been getting to watch, uh, half of most of everything.

    It may do! I'm not taking any credit, and it may just be a huge freaky coincidence, but I sent off the angry email at 7:01pm. By the time the ladies' SP started at 8:10pm, we were unblocked again. So take your shot!

    Mmmm. Right thing to do, but the wrong place to do it.

    You know the way I didn't watch the first 2 Senior GP's at the time. Well, the past couple of weeks I have been trying to catch up on them.

    Last week, I watched Skate America in the days leading up to the Trophée de France. And I was annoyed that as you were scrolling through the videos to find the archived stream, you couldn't avoid seeing who finished in the Top 3 of each of the segments, because they were only cutting individual videos for the Top 3 finishers.

    This week, I was trying to get watch Skate Canada watched in the days leading up to the Cup Of China (I didn't succeed, due to other things getting in the way). And despite it being only 2 weeks ago, it was a nightmare trying to find the archived streams. As well as the results giveaway videos, I was having to deal with speed skating videos as well. And then this morning when I went to watch the Pairs SP before the LIVE stuff from Chongqing came on, there were old videos to scroll past as well!

    Apart from anything else, the way these old videos are being uploaded means that they are out of sequence, mixed up in between modern stuff. So, if you are going to be looking for something specific, it's going to be a nightmare to find it.

    No, the ISU should be building an archive library on their own website rather than on YouTube. That way, it could be structured and everything properly organised. And it would have the benefit of not being under constant threat from the copyright police.

    Hey, if they did everything in-house on their own website, they might even be able to keep better controls on the geo-blocking. (I feel so sorry for our Aussie friends, and all the confusion they are having to deal with).

    What the ISU are doing at the moment on YouTube is a total and utter mess. In fact, I would go as far as to say that it is a shambles. And it does not reflect well on an organisation that is supposed to be running a number of sports.
