WCSN sucks

I subscribed. So, where is the coverage? Here it is, Sunday morning, perfect time to watch - and there is absolutely nothing available to watch going back to 2/24. No men's downhill from Kvitfjell on 2/29 or 3/1. Where is the content? Why is WCSN so chronically late providing the video coverage?

And WHY on Earth do they spoil the results in their opening screen and side frames????? It's too stupid to believe!

Yeah.. I finally broke down and had to view the results because I couldnt wait any longer for the video. Not sure what the deal is, but I guess I'll have to try to watch the SG live.

They are usually pretty good about posting on-demand vids the same day its been frustrating this time! I wonder if there is some contractual thing where the races are being shown in some TV channel in the US.

As for the results, I just go directly to www.wcsn.com/schedule and that way you can avoid looking at the main page and any announcements there .
