French Open on BBC Interactive

I don't know if this has been posted already or not.......


French Open on BBC Interactive

The French Open will be live on BBC Interactive.
For the first time BBC Interactive will allow digital TV viewers to watch action from matches for the entire duration of the event.

Coverage begins on 29 May and runs right through until the 11 June from 0800-1800 (approx) every day.

Digital TV viewers should press the red button on their remote at any time during live action from Roland Garros in order to access the service.

Rafael Nadal will be defending the men's title he won last year while Justine Henin-Hardenne will be looking to do the same in the women's event.

Fantastic news! Thanks. This might kick Eurosport in the backside. Their lazy coverage and disrespectful scheduling and sudden cut aways to tedious repetitive ads drives me nuts!
