Talking USO Coverage (Aussies Only!!)

Hey, does anyone from Australia know whether any of the free-to-air channels will be showing the USO this year??

I know that channel nine used to do it but last year they didnt and it really pissed me off!!

The funny thing is though that they still showed it on the country channel (It's called WIN here in perth.)

If anyone knows can you tell me!

Thanks.

What you talking about? We have US Open coverage on Channel 9 last year! Also, Optus/Foxtel had coverage of the US Open!


Inspiration is for amateurs

Oh that sucks!! They didnt air it over here in Perth last year on channel 9, only on the country channel WIN.

I hope they do this year!! I will find out soon enough!

And if they dont, i will be sending them a strongly worded letter!!

Perth didn't receive US Open coverage in 2002. The Eastern States Channel 9's buy the coverage rights to the US Open as a package deal (so they have more money pooled together), while Channel 9 in Perth has to work out their own deal and couldn't afford the coverage rights. That's kinda sucky, if you ask me.

Hey perth is cool!!

I saw an advertisment for the USO on channel 9 this morning, during the PGA Golf telecast, they said that the USO will be on next week starting on Monday, they did not mention that it will not be shown in Perth so i can only hope that they do.

I'l just have to wait until saturday when we get next weeks TV guide.

And if they dont show it, i'm going to send them a letter because thats false advertising.

If they weren't going to show it here in Perth, they should have put a note at the bottom of the ad to say that!!
