Live Coverage of Qualifications
Can I watch qualifications online?
So far this hasn’t been in any way successful but perhaps check out this link from FujiTV who are filming at Worlds. Jordy from the IG forum suggested downloading this program to watch live Japanese Television. It’s possible that some other live streaming links will appear. We will of course post them if they become available. In the meantime you can check out the streaming links in our Coverage Post.
