    Ladies Free live Sunday evening 9 p.m. UK/10 p.m. CET, also fairly brief highlights of men's free and pairs free from previous evening. Cross your fingers that snooker, or skiing, depending on your provider, doesn't overrun.

    I've mostly stopped looking up the TV schedules. Because the livestreams are available, I'm not bothering with the commentary TV versions anymore unless I have to (like for some reason, I couldn't find the Ladies FS livestream without commentary, only the E2 version. Couldn't find the gala without, either, but turns out it's listed as free dance, so there are two free dances in the Player, lol).
    I was on holiday last weekend in the UK, and had social engagements this weekend, too, so couldn't watch much live, anyway. The Player streams have been great.

    I guess it was to be expected there wouldn't be much live on TV of Skate America...

    My TV magazine says that Eurosport 1 shows the Men's short of IdF on Friday evening, but the actually Eurosport 1 schedule does have Bundesliga and Ski Jumping in their list. I wanted to see that short, why???

    Just added the ESP Deutschland schedules to my schedule post.

    Don't know what's happened the Men's SP, but the broadcasts with commentary for the Pairs SP, Ladies FS and Pairs FS have been shifted over to the Eurosport Player.

    Which begs the question - why hasn't the same been done for the Men's SP?

    Watch out for the Ladies FS everyone, it's scheduled TV wise for 1 p.m. Eurosport UK and 2 p.m. CET. However the actual competition starts at 12.20/13.20 and looks like they'll cut to it once the live luge before it (12 p.m. to 1 p.m.) finishes. Don't think they've ever shown anything 'as live' but delayed before (I stand to be corrected), hence it's likely we'll miss the first few skaters of group 1. However also be aware they've sometimes cut to something early once the live sport preceding it has finished. Hence something to be aware of if recording/planning to switch on the telly at 1 p.m./2 p.m.

    Yeah, I had noticed the time discrepency.

    Eurosport have been known to show things in whole with a delay in the past. For example, I remember it happening with an Alpine Skiing race either last season or the season before. British Eurosport was showing something different to Eurosport International beforehand, and the programme on BES finished about 15 minutes into the race. So, BES showed the broadcast in it's entirity with a 15 delay. Which worked out well.

    But, the last time they did the same with figure skating, there was uproar on here.

    Eurosport were trying to join in time for the start of the group before a resurfacing. But, the programme before it over-ran by a few minutes. And when they joined, the first skater had already started. So, they wound it back to the start of the routine so that we could see the routine in it's entirity rather than joining about a minute into the routine. Which made sense to me. But, other members were absolutely outraged. Probably because they had the livescoring page open as well, and were angry that the scores were coming up there before the skater came off the ice.

    So, a couple of skaters later, they cut out the highlights to get us caught up again. And I was thinking "come on, there's a resurfacing coming up. You could have waited and caught up then".

    You're damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

    Personally, I would be more than happy if British Eurosport showed the Ladies FS delayed. If you look at the Coloured Time Schedule, there is a 25 minute gap between the end of the Ladies FS and the start of the Free Dance. So, if British Eurosport edited out the warm-ups, I reckon they could fit everybody into that hour-and-a-half between the Luge and the Free Dance.

    We can but hope.

    If I remember correctly, the Junior GP YouTube channel doesn't normally show the Final, because the whole of the GP Final is treated as one event as far as the broadcast contracts are concerned.

    Which is highly unfair if the broadcaster that has the rights in your country is only interested in showing the Senior competitions.

    So, fingers crossed that Eurosport are interested this time.

    I would love it if the contracts allowed Ted's channel to broadcast the Junior GP Final. After all, he has been broadcasting the rest of the series. And because of this, he is familiar with all the skaters and can tell us things that the commentators that normally just cover Senior events can't.

    Oh well!

    It's unlikely to be shown live due to time zone differences - GPF is in Japan unlike last year when it was Marseille. Livestream is possible as are highlights but it'd be asking an awful lot of the commentators - last year they split up the duties. Highlights of winners/medallists between senior events are hopefully quite possible though, we'll just have to wait and see.

    Ah, good!

    I didn't see much of the Junior GP Series this season, so I didn't realise.

    Thank you for letting us know.
