Why did skysports stop broadcasting the aussie open????

Its really bad they stopped last year and now i have to watch it on eurosport and eurosport2.The worst thing is u used 2 be able to press the red button while watching it on skysports and have a choice of picking a court to watch out of like 6!!!And now you have to watch whatever match eurosport decide to show!!

Re: Why did skysports stop broadcasting the aussie open????

I expect that because of the time difference and most of the matches being played during the night here, the viewing figures wouldn't justify what Sky would have to pay for it so they leave it for Eurosport.

It's a bit of a shame because Eurosport don't do the multi-screen thing but it's better than nothing.

excatly.

At least we can have Wimbledon (the bbc stop EVERYTHING for two weeks to show Wimby! ) and USO (Sky Sports Interactive )

We just have to settle for eurosport for AO and FO. Its better than some countries I suppose.

But seen as not at home with no sky I wont be able to watch ANY of it

I have eurosport but will defo go for the BBC non advert coverage of the night matches and finals,best way to watch BBC by the way is a freeview box and good outdoor aerial because I was reading online sky compress the BBC channels and its not the quality of freeview which is a surprise,if you compare the two at home you can see the difference in quality,the BBC did have full day coverage of the FO last year and wil prob do the same this year.

Re: Why did skysports stop broadcasting the aussie open????

what i want is for BBC Radio to be available on the TV at same time whilst watching the matches on BBCi (like they do with football matches)

one major downside of BBC coverage is that they've got John Lloyd and Chris Bailey

Re: Why did skysports stop broadcasting the aussie open????

Does anyone know if Eurosport will have a highlights show, like the old Australian Stories style highlights? I used to really enjoy that, it's nice to get the interviews and a look at what goes on behind the scenes, not just match after match all the time.

Re: Why did skysports stop broadcasting the aussie open????

At least this year they're doing a highlights show in the evening. It's just one hour long, but I guess if there's an especially exciting match (ie anything that includes Andy Murray) they'll run over their allotted time.

Last year, I recall, they only showed the live tennis.
