2016 European Championships - Entries and where to watch

The 2016 European Figure Skating Championships will be held 25–31 January 2016 in Bratislava, Slovakia. Medals will be awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pairs, and ice dancing.
Skaters are eligible for the event if they are representing a European member nation of the International Skating Union and have reached the age of 15 before July 1, 2015 in their place of birth. The corresponding competition for non-European skaters is the 2016 Four Continents Championships. National associations select their entries according to their own criteria but the ISU mandates that their selections achieve a minimum technical elements score (TES) at an international event prior to the European Championships.

  1. ISU Skating Channel http://www.eurovisionsports.tv/isu/ hosts a replay of the whole competition!. So far there are Men and Ladies Short Programs there (split into 30-45 minutes clips according to the groups standing). They are not geoblocked. Way to go ISU :-)
    PS. I don't know how long they will be there.
