BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

It looks almost certain that BT Vision will be announced as the new Broadcaster of the WTA Tour. The WTA will announce this news very soon.

Sad for Eurosport, but BT Vision have all the money at the moment to buy everything.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Does that mean we have to have one of those BT Vision boxes

How will it work? Will they have a separate channel?

Care to explain please

Quick Wikipedia check suggests they also got rights to 38 PL live games starting next season for over a billion euros. I take a wild guess and say they pay the WTA more for the UK rights alone than ES paid for the whole continent.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

No no no. I am NOT going to have to buy one of those FLOP boxes just to watch fucking tennis. The absolute fuck?

I don't even have the choice. BT Vision basically doesn't work where I live. Neither does Virgin.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Nothing is decided yet and ES may get some WTA's also...

ONLY info to find is that they shows 1 ATP 250

Please visit my Caroline website.

Caroline Wozniacki Result page

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

WTA is soooo stupid
To get Money for the TV right is One Thing, but the Sponsors will Not be happy when just a Minority can watch it
And will People Pay for a Box just to watch womens Tennis? I gues Not

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood
