TV Coverage of the Women's Worlds - list

Hi all.

I've been through the TV listings for the upcoming Women's World Championships in Beijing, China. Much of it will be covered on US sports channels, and I thought I'd share what I found here.

All times listed are in Eastern Daylight Time.

Sat. Mar. 18
1 am, Draw 1, USA vs Scotland on Universal HD
7 am, Draw 2, USA vs Sweden on Universal HD
9:30 pm, Draw 3, a TBD match on NBC SN. The actual draw begins at 9pm, so they're joining this one late or delaying it a bit, owing to the length of the event preceding this on their schedule.

Sun. Mar. 19
9 pm, Draw 6, a TBD match on NBC SN. US plays Canada in this slot, so I'd guess that'll be the one.

Mon. Mar. 20
7 am, Draw 8, Canada vs Switzerland and/or Germany vs China. Universal HD
9 pm, Draw 10, Canada vs South Korea, Universal HD

Tues. Mar. 21
7 am, Draw 11, USA vs China, Universal HD

Wed. Mar. 22
7 am, Draw 14, USA vs Russia, Universal HD
9 pm, Draw 15, Canada vs Italy and/or China vs Sweden, Universal HD

Fri. Mar. 24
7 am, Page Playoff, 1 vs. 2, Universal HD

Sat. Mar. 25
7 pm, a delayed TBD round robin match on NBC SN (why?)
10 pm, Bronze Medal Match, Universal HD

Sun. Mar. 26
3 pm, Gold Medal Match, NBC SN. This is delayed 12 hours from the live event at 3 am.

As you can see, there are lots of gaps. Fortunately, World Curling TV over at youtube will also be covering at least one match in every draw (except perhaps the round robin tiebreaker should there be one), however, some or all of that may be geoblocked in the US due to some US TV networks having some rights. We'll have to wait and see what happens on that score.

Also, for me personally, I bristled at first at seeing most of it on Universal HD, as that's on a tier I don't normally pay for, but I checked into it, and found that DirecTV has a promotion on right now where you can get this channel and a few others for three months at no extra charge, and dump it at no cost at the end of the three months if you don't want it anymore. ($5 a month after that if you do.)

TSN has been being rebroadcast on ESPN3 lately and it seems there will be TSN coverage of the world championships, though I'm not sure if this will also be on ESPN3.

I'm pretty sure ESPN3 can't carry any of the World Championships. NBC Universal has the rights for Worlds in the states, but not for the Brier/Scotties, etc.

I'm happy to see Universal Sport died and that the programming is being picked up by other NBC channels. It would be great to see more of Worlds on NBCSN, instead of Universal HD, but even if Universal HD is usually on a more expensive tier, it's at least carried on more systems than Universal Sports was.

It's a nice step to get live coverage, and hopefully there's enough viewership that more shifts to NBCSN next season.

TSN is carrying almost all of Canada's draws, missing only 2, and also the playoffs and medal rounds.

ESPN3 can't relay their coverage this time, as yes, NBC's family has the rights.

I strongly suspect this will all repeat itself in the same pattern for the Men's tournament in April.

Team USA themselves have a more handy link to the TV coverage list for this, and for the men's tournament in April too. Here it is:
