On demand alpine ski racing from European networks?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have any links to websites that show WC alpine races on demand? Any Swiss or Austrian networks do this online? I have a European VPN so that is not an issue.

I'm wondering where one can stream or download WC race coverage too.  CBC.ca pretty much only covers speed events, and it looks like for Universal Sports access, this season you need to have Dish or DirectTV cable, which is a bit of a deal breaker for a Canadian with Shaw cable.  =P  

 

So with those two sites offering pretty incomplete coverage, I'm at a bit of a loss as to where else I can go to get my ski racing fix while I'm still out on a pesky injury.  Plus, I need to find somewhere to watch all the skiing at Soelden so I can get an edge over the rest of my fantasy ski racing league.  =P

The easiest way to view the races without Universal Sports is to use live feeds/streams.  I typed in Solden Alpine Skiing into Google and found plenty last night.  I watched the races live at four a.m. on the East Coast, and am now watching the one hour condensed rebroadcast on British Eurosport. 

Some of these sites may be of dubious legality thus I'm not giving out any URLs, but the Google trick works fine.  The hardest thing to get used to is the time difference.  You can view the tv schedule on eurosport.com and then figure out how many hours behind the action you are.  Granted, the original post is looking for on demand which live streams certainly are not, but the second poster wanted help just to get the races so I am offering some advice.

GG, see the other recent WC thread in the general skiing forum for how to access Eurosport. They show live races and rebroadcasts at set times; but of course these times may or may not work for you. I was able to watch the men this weekend but not the women. I'm sure some network somewhere must offer on demand, but it's probably a foreign language network which makes it hard for me find online using English search terms.

Thank you both, I had no idea about Eurosport and I managed to miss the thread you're talking about [1].  There's lots of good info in that thread, and the VPN/Eurosport solution will be quite workable.  They say they have on demand streaming, too, but I'll worry about that after I get stuff set up for myself.  Plus, with a British VPN, you can probably even get English coverage with some awesome accents!  =P  But even just finding other miscellaneous live streams could work, especially since I believe it's fairly easy to record them with VLC for later personal use, I just need to refresh my memory as to how to do that.  =P  

 

Also, to tide me over until I can get that all figured out (and perhaps you might find it useful too, Chisty), in another thread [2] jc-ski posted a couple of Youtube links.  The commentary is German, but there's no subtitles, and the uploader also posted one of the women's runs.
