Junior Eurovision Tonight: How to Watch Written by on November 30, 2013

Tonight, from the Ukraine National Palace of Arts in Kiev, a dozen young acts from a dozen nations will sing their little hearts out, all in the hopes of succeeding Anastasiya Petrik as Junior Eurovision Champion.

Starting at 19:00 CET (18:00 GMT, 13:00 EST), here is a list of the participating national broadcasters who will be screening the program this evening:

  • Armenia – Armenia 1
  • Azerbaijan – İctimai Television
  • Belarus –BTRC
  • Georgia – Georgian Public Broadcaster
  • Macedonia – Macedonian Radio Television
  • Malta – Public Broadcasting Services
  • Moldova – TeleRadio-Moldova
  • Netherlands – AVRO
  • Russia – Carousel
  • San Marino – SMtv San Marino
  • Sweden – SVT Barnkanalen
  • Ukraine – National Television Company of Ukraine; Radio Ukraine International

In addition, Greek channel DT and Kosovar network RTK will be broadcasting the event in a non-participatory function.  Australia’s SBS Two will be playing a repeat of the show on December 1st (so be sure to avoid spoilers, people!)

Castle FM, a community radio station serving the area around Edinburgh, will also be playing a live audio broadcast of the show, featuring our very own Ewan Spence and escXtra’s Luke Fisher.  This will mark the first time since 2005 that a UK-based commentary will be available for Junior Eurovision…maybe a sign of things to come?

And last, but certainly not least, Spence and Fisher will be serving up live commentary on the official Junior Eurovision webstream, available at  Gather the family, pop some popcorn, and enjoy the show!
