100% incorrect? So when I look on Skysports.com for live tennis listings I see this. Now, sure, I do recall they've shown that exo in prior years (and might well do so again), but obviously you have that scoop.
This is just an error/not properly updated from them. Unless they have changed their schedule (seems unlikely). They advertised showing Abu Dhabi at least a couple of times during WTF from 27th December. The fact Murray is playing it, it seems unlikely they would have changed their minds. And they've shown this
event for several years anyway.
Also with regard to the matter in hand, and in the UK. Is it not surprising that their seems to be an apparent deal in the UK, but such a deal is not being advertised. If it was BT Vision as seems to be the general consensus, you'd think they'd least advertise as such given it's not like everyone already has access to it. The lack of any sort of press release anywhere really seems strange when you consider the season is 1 month away.

I just emailed Daniel Franck, Joint COO of IEC In Sport to ask what the situation is with UK broadcast rights. Wasn't really expecting a reply, but got one straight away!
Thanks for your mail. Yes there will a broadcaster in the uk airing the wta but we can't tell you which one until the channel decides to do a press release about it.
Got pretty much the same reply.
I am emailing you to find out if you have any firm news regarding a broadcast partner for WTA Premier events for Ireland and Great Britain for 2013 and beyond. With the 2013 season less than four weeks away, some positive developments would be most welcome. I am aware that tennistv.com will be providing online coverage, but I would like to have the option of television viewing as well.
Yes, there is a broadcaster confirmed for next year but which one will be released when the channel decides to do a press release.
