You say NBC Gold will air the entire competition in the US. I’m in the US and have had NBC Gold for 2 years now; they never air practices or Galas (except maybe Olympic galas), which is very disappointing. Just thought I would clarify that point in case you didn’t know. Thanks for your site, though.
Most broadcasters don’t air practices. NBC Gold actually did stream some practices for Skate America this year. But it’s true that NBC Gold never streams galas. We’ve changed the wording in our post to make that clear.
When did the tradition of throwing things into the ice start?
Not sure, it seems to have been a thing for a long time. Probably a borrowed tradition from theater and other performance arts.
any idea what country is the best to set your vpn to in order to watch the isu videos from this season? it seems like even countries that have access to some of the videos are still restricted by sme copyright claims and the like.
Yes, unfortunately even if the ISU streams and videos are available in your country, Youtube may block them due to copyright claims on the music. The good news is that these blocks won’t affect live streams. The bad news is that there’s no good way to tell which countries the music might be blocked in. Try countries that aren’t in the Americas, Europe, or east Asia, maybe?
Hi! What does “ot” mean referred to a jump? Thank you
It’s fan shorthand for “overturn”. Basically the skater can’t hold the landing and turns out of it.
is there no livestream in canada for skate canada int? have they seriously made it so i cant watch the one gp event in my own goddamn country?
As you can see in our streaming post, TSN and CTV are only airing Skate Canada in delayed broadcasts. CBC doesn’t have the rights for Skate Canada, but they will be streaming every other event in the GP and probably the major ISU championships as well. You can try this fan stream for Skate Canada, the quality is not great but it works (you have to enable Flash). Or you can use a VPN to unblock the ISU stream.
