It depends on what device. I got my laptop in August and it doesn't work very well there. But if I use airplay off my phone it works very well on my TV. No problems at all since doing it that way end of September.

Unfortunately the catchup option isn't available on a mobile device. Not everyone wants to watch it on a laptop or plug the laptop into the tv and not have the laptop available at the same time.

If Sky covers the WTA in the UK next year it probably won't be on tennistv in the UK though. Any tournament that is on the telly in the country where you live is blacked out on tennistv. Better check out first before you sign up.

The big negative is Kevin Fisher for me. If anyone has heard him they know what I mean. He obviously doesn't commentate every match but he says the same things every match and he is normally commentating on his own.

So if there are tournaments next year that will only be covered by tennis.tv do you think that there will also be coverage on sites like livescorehunter? If not, I'd take a subscription to tennis.tv into consideration.

Thanks, that sounds promising.

Sky covered all the ATP 1000s this year (as they have done for the last few years) and I had full access to all those events via tennistv, had I chosen to subscribe.

Chrissie-fan, as you seem to have used tennistv, what is the catch-up service like? I did take a look around the time of Basel and Paris ATP events, and it seemed that full matches were only posted up hours after the live match ended, and always with a picture of the winner.

On another topic, credit to them for saying how many matches they cover at each event, but there's a lot of variation. Rome gets 26 matches, Madrid gets only 13!!

I would never go with tennis.tv subscription, they usually miss some matches and start they coverage late in the tournaments even for some ATP events

First they had 5 or 6 matches from Brisbane, now 16 and starts from day 2. So they may add more matches in other tournaments...

and it may be tennistv or nothing...

Pirate streaming sites almost cover everything that has TV feed or official streaming source.

Also betting sites, like bet365 covers literally everyting. Of course their quality is not that good.

Thats more of an ATP thing. And usually because domestic broadcasters have a (free) video streraming platform too.
