  1. They in theory work for me as they go to the right site. But you need Flash 10.1 and to be in Sweden. All I can get here in the UK is the correct program page

  2. The links were actually provided by someone in Sweden. It’s the Swedish side of Finnish site YLE Areena. I can only test they go to the live broadcast page – until I am next in Sweden for a synchro competition 🙂 – because they are territory restricted
