    Does anyone know when the Latin World Championships are broadcast and on what channel? A friend of mine saw an advertisement but didn't get the details.

    DId the friend remember if it was a USA or Canadian channel? (Not sure if you could be getting both at your locale)

    He didn't know but just said he saw it advertised, which was not a lot of help since I get over 400 channels (many more are availabale but I don't get them all) with probably about 65% being U.S., 32% Canadian and 2% British or other. Cable t.v. was actually invented in my city and my parents were one of the first customers. Wow, seems like that was forever ago now.

    Usually the Ballroom comps come on PBS or WQLN from the north U.S. so I think they may be a good posibility.

    If I do find out when and where I will let everyone know.

    I think A&E did a show once...but you had to through the bad, cheesy commentary.

    Looks like WCFE is a PBS station out of Plattsburg NY. So if you don't get that particular one, check listings on your PBS station, and if they don't carry it, call and request they do.

    Checking into WSRE (my local PBS) without luck. The search of their tv schedule and of the pbs.org main site turns up nothing. Drats!

    Ok, maybe I just noticed it, but seems those showings are for 2007, not this year, no?
