Re: US Television Schedule

So you mean, we have to watch the whole block and hope they show some and not the other sports?

Right, and since most of it is tape delayed coverage, they can pick and choose when they want the matches in each block. Hopefully they won't just shove clips of match points into the middle of some horrendous boxing coverage, but....

Thank you!
Not a ton of it, but at least its not just in the middle of a block. It seems we'll get full matches at times.
Can't wait! But isn't NBC streaming from their website every sport, too?

gone

Re: Olympic Television Schedules

In Poland there will be five channels showing Olympic Games - TVP1, TVP2, TVP Info, TVP Sport and TVP HD so there is a chance that they will broadcast whole matches, not only parts.

There will be also a live streaming on the site - pekin.tvp.pl. There will be a channel showing tennis, table tennis and badminton. But I don't know if people from abroad could watch it.

Re: Olympic Television Schedules

RTS Serbia showing all matches of Serbian players. I'm sure they'll find a way to do the same at the Olympics as well.

Stay away.

are you talking about THE tennis channel, because they don't have the Olympics on their schedule.

No, I mean “CCTV-Golf&Tennis”, this is a channel only shows the Golf and Tennis matches.
