(updated) Australian Open tv coverage, and HK, Thai , Hopman info for ASIA.

Hi Gang- brace yourself for this. It's true- STAR SPORTS has
blanket coverage and exclusive rights for TV coverage of
the 2005 Aussie Open in all of Asia except Japan!
We'll all be seeing the lead up shows [the Official AO films]
prior to start date in Melbourne. This will be a great time
for everyone to catch up on the years of 1997-2004, especially
the HINGIS years.

We in Singapore and everyone else will suffer w/ English
tv commentary by VJ and Co. Lucky people in Taiwan, and
China will get Chinese TV commentary.

*Good news for Singapore. We will be getting delayed coverage
of all the matches from the HK exhibition; but ( duh!!) during
the first week of the Australian Open on Channel 22 singles/dubs.

Be sure to look out for the Maria/Venus match live from
Chiang Mai on January 2 on STAR SPORTS.
Also daily delayed match coverage of the HOPMAN Cup 2005.


TELESCOPE the monthly starhub cable magazine, has a nice
mini profiles on JHH, Serena and Maria; so hopefully this
means that they'll be featured as the main stories for the
AO 2005 STAR SPORTS tv coverage.

Yes, during the 1 hour official AO film show. It will be on
from Jan 9 every night. Check you local listing. It will start
from AO 1997.

We will also be daily delayed coverage of the HOPMAN Cup!

Thanks so much, Greenout. You don't know how excited I am. Could you please confirm whether this applies for Star Sports India as well, since that's what we get in Pakistan. It would be a real pity if Star Sports India don't carry these special films. The good thing though, is that we'll be getting coverage on three channels for the Australian Open.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

HI- I did some research for you and you'll also be getting an
extra show called AO 1988-1998 too; but no Hopman Cup.

Please check you local times for exact start times. Our timezones
are a tad different; but AO fever will start for all of us on Jan 9!


Go here everybody for up to the minute schedules in your area.

No. ESPN/STAR is shown in Asia.

I think you may be getting AO coverage on ESPN/ESPN2 back
in the USA; but you'll have to check your local schedules.

I'm not too sure if the Hopman Cup will be shown on the
Tennis Channel, though.

Again- check your local listing.
