Why not? SuperTennis encrypted its programmes only in two occasions (Davis Cup) a couple of years ago. From then on, it's always been FTA whatever they broadcast. Btw DubaiSport and AlJazeeraSport televised Wta Tennis for years, always FTA

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

major concerns regarding Supertennis channel are two.
1. With three tournaments at the same time in the same week, they will see only a handful of games and jumping from one tournament to another
2. Supertennis channel has never broadcast in native HD, its transponder capacity for very low bit rate

another question.
what is the point that the wta sell the rights for each country when Supertennis transmits the games free and you can take in all Europe?
maybe crypt some tournament?

In the netherlands and denmark wich channel/frequency/bouquet/encoding are visibile the wta tour?

Anyone has news from spain and germany?

Fingers crossed indeed that they will show earlier rounds also from other tournaments. It's annoying that there isn't a full schedule available online what they intend on showing. From the tournament of champions they also showed only the SF and final.

Didn't Supertennis also use encoding for the WTA tournament in Rome a couple of years ago? I remember them doing so. I'm not sure if they can easily switch on encoding for an entire season. They'd have to be part of some subscription station. Otherwise how are people going to get hold of viewing cards. I agree it's odd that for now there is a FTA option available in Europe. Even if the commentary is in Italian.

The channel dedicated to tennis from the Dutch station Sport1 isn't available on satellite. They might show some tennis on sport1 select but that's no guarantee as to what and how often they'll show tennis. The Sport1 channels are encrypted.

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

After several different mails to tennistv i finally got this answer:

"The website wrongly says as WTA Premier Tournaments are not available in Europe.

We can assure that the website will be updated and correct information will be shown soon.

We can confirm that the WTA Premier Tournaments are available globally in 2013."

For people moaning about European coverage, Canadian coverage excels itself again. The final will be on but shown the next day.

sry I can't go through the whole thread - did any opportunity presented itself? I am willing to pay for some online service accessible in Europe (Poland) if necessary. Anything?

SuperTennisTV got all the rights for the 22 premier events + YEC, they usually stream and broadcast free, it only remains to see if they'll crypt something now or if they'll continue this way.
