If you have an iPhone you can follow the 2012 European Figure Skating Championships in Sheffield on the  Россия 2 channel on the app Russian TV. The app has a schedule, just look for the keywords: Чемпионатов Европы (European Championships) to find out broadcast times. This is the same channel that provides the internet stream. All commentary is, of course, in Russian.

The app is free but the service has a subscription cost of US 99 cents a day and will provide reminders that a subscription is due during playback.

The app may be available for iPad but iowskaters hasn’t been able to try this. It might be worth keeping an eye on this channel for future skating events.

The seventh series of ITV’s Dancing on Ice gets under way on Sunday 8 January, and the participating celebrities have been revealed on the ITV website.

From the ITV programming guide:

“Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley present a brand new series as 15 celebrities take to the ice in a bid to be crowned Dancing on Ice Champion 2012. Ice legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean return as mentors to put the celebrities through their paces, and the standard will be higher than ever with tougher and more spectacular routines to test them over the next 12 weeks. Robin Cousins is joined in this series by two new judges – dance choreographer Louie Spence, and Olympic skating legend Katarina Witt. The first group of skaters perform tonight with the phone lines open for viewers to vote for their favourite. Who will be the first pair to face the dreaded skate off later tonight?”
