The ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships 2012 takes place at the Scandinavium Arena in Gothenburg on 12 to 14 April. The short programme gets under way on Friday 13 April at 17.30 CET and the free programme starts at 15.00 CET on Saturday 14 April (see event schedule).
Live web streaming of both days is to be provided in Europe by Swedish broadcaster SVT and Finnish broadcaster YLE. SVT can also be viewed on the iPhone/iPad app SVT Play.
The event’s official Facebook page reports live coverage is as follows on SVT: short programmes on Friday between 19.30 and 21.15 CET; free programmes on Saturday between 18.250 and 20.10 CET. This limits live coverage to the top 11 of 21 teams on Friday, and the top eight teams on Saturday.
The official website says live coverage on SVT should be available outside Sweden throughout Europe. However, this was not the case on the Friday or Saturday, with the broadcast suffering from restricted geographic access via the web version of SVT. The broadcast, however, was still viewable in the UK on the iPhone/iPad app SVT Play.
If you’re lucky the selected clip of the free programme will work for Sweden1: Team Surprise, the overall winner of the event. Other clips have restricted access.
