Wimbledon LIVE

as we all had some problems with finding good coverage for RG matches, i've started wondering whether to subscribe Wimbledon Live Video Service. It cost 25$ (hopefully $ is so low nowadays ) and is supposed to cover 8 different courts at the same time. have you guys considered that? or are there maybe other possibilities to find cheaper/free streamings? what attracts me the most is the fact that this will cover courts of secondary importance. and since i'm not that interested in big names, this seems the only chance to watch not-that-popular players.

Re: Wimbledon LIVE

Will ESPN be covering this online like the other slams? I find it convinent because they allow you to go back and watch the match as it were live.

if they showed it free the whole event wouldn't probably make any point for the organisers, unfortunately.

so how can we get this BBC I Sky/ Sky Courts and what exactly is that, cause nothing seems to appear in google for me

and another thing is that this won't be available in Germany and Spain from some reason...

Re: Wimbledon LIVE

ESPN and Directv will have the same deal they did for FO. With several courts covered for the first week of play.

As far as it being on ESPN 360, Im not totally sure. If Mediazone has the rights to online stream for USA, then maybe ESPN360 cant show?

Re: Wimbledon LIVE

I got Wimbledon Live last year and it was fantastic. It really afforded you opportunities to see so many matches, especially those you wouldn't normally expect to see. Unfortunately, I couldn't watch it live, as I work during the day and my company does not allow for it. But I watched a ton at home.

Re: Wimbledon LIVE

Im not sure about the later rounds, but when it starts they only replay the matches after they're

done.

Re: Wimbledon LIVE

I've done it for the past two years and it is fantastic. Great court coverage and really reliable/high quality streams.

ESPN360 is covering Wimbledon, but I think they only have 3 courts instead of 8.

No. I just meant that I got it for 5 bucks cheaper, because I subscribed last year.
