Contemplating Buying Eurosport Player for Aus Open: Questions!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Basically, my laptop is SHIT. The internet switches itself on and off for the fun of it and it constantly crashes. Its like brand new too. Fucking piece of shit.

Anyway, I go back to University right when the Aus Open starts but, obviously, I am desparate to watch what I can. I have borrowed my friends' laptops on a number of occassions to watch tennis in the past. As the Aus Open is on through the night here, I know I would have access to a working laptop...so I can easily afford to pay the fee and use the player on SOMEBODY ELSE'S laptop.

Now here comes the question I want answered more than any other:

How does the subscription work? In terms of, if I sign up do I have a USERNAME etc that can be used on ANY computer at ONE time only...or does it HAVE to be used on a DESIGNATED computer, i.e. the one I sign up with?!

Anyone who can catergorically answers this question...well...I love you.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

Re: Contemplating Buying Eurosport Player for Aus Open: Questions!

Well I registered fine, it all seems to work. BUT NO FUCKING TENNIS.

I've got the option of "TV Shop" or Eurosport 2, which is news. Do other people from England get this? Or have I done something wrong?!?!

Re: Contemplating Buying Eurosport Player for Aus Open: Questions!

I'm pretty happy with it. The quality on the Murray re-runs was better because it had a high-res option which they should also have for the AO. £3.99 isn't bad to have up to 5 courts a day. If its crap then no great loss.

WTA event has proper feed.

dunno what events, it might be all the WTA events they have rights for.
TV schedule doesnt matter cos they showed Sydney live all way through and its not on TV.
5 courts from Aus Open next week, will be great when Eurosport does its Murray love-in .

Good luck to my favs
