    Anyone know if Kayo shows the World Cup or will I be stuck with Foxtel? Or is there a recommended stream with a VPN?

    Foxtel hasn’t shown Swiss events, or ¿?Austrian events in a few years, which is impossibly tedious of them
    I found that if I entered “world cup skiing” or similar into a search in youtube just before the race was due to start, it might be possible to find a link to someone streaming it
    @Heinz knows ways of finding WC events via Austrian tv

    I've been using a German site https://schoener-fernsehen.com for a few years now which has a range of European channels mostly German language and importantly includes Austrian channel ORF1 which broadcasts all races live. You do have to register and from memory is about 10 Euro for 6 months. It suits me perfectly as the Austrian coverage is just what I want, but probably wouldn't suit most. I guess there may be an English equivalent somewhere but I haven't seen it.

    CBC showed every event last season, either with comically bad Canadian commentary or just the silent stream. VPN required.

    VPN is not required. You have to first register on the site. There are a few free channels, but most including the Austrian ones require a Plus membership. This is 1€ for 1 month, 5.60€ for 6 months or 10€ for 12 months. The payment bit is a bit crap though. You have to buy credits from another site (we-love-tv.com - link takes you there). There are a number of payment options, but several are only valid in Germany. I used a HiPay wallet option where you can load up various amounts of credit. You can then use that credit back on the original site. You then have list of German, Swiss, Austrian, French, British and American channels.

    Have you signed up to euro sport for the northern winter? and if so have you been able to get getflix and euro sport to work on any devices other than a PC?

    UK eurosport and getflix, although as far i know you can only get eurosport to work in a PC web browser that might have changed on the Ipad safari with IOS13 but the app won't work because it requires location services to be switch on (there might be a work around for this on android but in think you need a jailbroken apple device to get around it on apple)

    Getflix does a 2 week free trail, gives you access to many other streaming services, uses smart DNS and also has VPN
    Every now and then appsumo and stacksoical offer "lifetime" (35yrs) getflix subscriptions for $39-49USD
    https://stacksocial.com/sales/getflix-lifetime-subscription (currently not on sale)

    Just tuned into ORF and the regular early morning Wetterpanorama is on. This has been going for many years - long before you had webcams on the internet.
    Grabbed a couple of snaps.

    Forecast is for a fine, sunny weekend in Sölden. Quite a contrast to the last 2 years when race was cancelled due to the weather. It has been a warm autumn in Austria.

    Prize money for Kitzbühel increased. https://sport.orf.at/stories/3054669
    Winners of the downhill and slalom each get 100,000 Euro and Super-G winner 68,500 Euro.
    Still fairly low numbers compared to some other sports with much less risk.

    anyone who watched Gruen last week might have seen Mikaela’s cameo at the beginning of the Barilla ad featuring Roger Federer
    I’ve never seen the ad on actual tv

    I should have mentioned that I added some €s to my credit for this channel two weeks ago but when it didn’t appear in my account I discovered that it doesn’t start until 1 November
    I’m sure someone thinks that makes sense

    German commentators* interviewing Vicky Rebensburg
    they’re probably not asking her if it makes her feel old, being beaten by a 17 year old
    jeez, Mikaela is 24 now
    they interviewed her too
    one of the Germans had to translate ‘the takeaway from this race ...’

    *one of them is Felix Neureuther - apparently he’s retired now

    Yes, Felix retired end of last season. I really liked his sense of humour as a racer. Might have to try and catch some of his commentary on German TV, though I normally find the coverage on Austrian TV is far better.

    Here is Felix doing his first camera run.

    Took a bit to find this in a NZ paper. Seemed to be dominated by something else...
    https://www.odt.co.nz/sport/other-sport/otago-skier-alice-robinson-makes-history

    Just last weekend SBS showed highlights from the NZ winter games from August where she finished 2nd in the GS.
