A dane said without he has a good source that Canal 8 Sport in Danmark has got the Rights in Danmark, I will try call them tomorrow! But that will mean it won't be on ES in 2013.

If another channel got the rights in DK then ES Nordic lost them for sure which would mean no WTA on ES in Scandinavia.

I'll wait for your call on Monday Jorn.

Very intresting. This shows that there are very different situations at Eurosport. Nordic is at least still negotiating, while many other countries have already given up. Actually I find it quite intresting that they are still negotiating. Haven't they reached an agreement with anyone yet? That Canal Sport 8 has been mentioned many times, but nothing seems certain. And it's only a Danish Network. If they get it, that probably means Sweden and the other Nordic countries won't see any tennis. I doubt anyone in Sweden, Norway or Finland gets or even wants the rights. Maybe the price would have been better last year when Wozniacki still had some results. And maybe that's why Canal 8 isn't that eager anymore?

Canal 8 er en Canal Digital Kanal, så C More Tennis will get the Rights in Nordic countries...

Now there are C More Extreme also, C More tennis and in Sweden C More Sport, so they have channels they need to fill with sport..

C More Tennis and C8 showed this weekend Davis Cup, my guess tons more ppl want to watch Caro play more the see unknown men play

Ugh, well I can't afford to pay 500 SEK every month (or higher?) for that C more package, that's for sure.
So I guess only streams for me from now on.

Well done WTA.

Yes, but that might not be the case in other Nordic countries if the want to pull tennis fans. They'll prefer ATP any time before WTA. At the moment C More has ATP rights only for next season. I can't believe they would show both after 2013. Danes don't really care for tennis anyway and the time for promoting Caro was a year ago. This year has been just awful and it doesn't look good for next year either. That's financially a dangerous strategy to buy a whole tour because of one player who's not on form. Especially if the WTA want a multiyear deal. C More is also waiting in the future for Premiership rights, NHL rights and maybe Champions League rights and make a offer for them. A multiyear deal with the WTA would just seem so odd.

Damn, this is the first time in life I'm thankful for ESPN
Luckily most tennis tournaments that we all are interested in watching have live streams nowadays.

But very few streams come from the US. OG is the first time I've seen a non-Slam stream from the US. All of them were ES. Hopefully this MSC thing will be able to be streamed. I wouldn't care for non-English commentary if I at least got to watch.

Yuryevna,
