No Official Live Streaming!

According to the AO website:
"Unfortunately, LIVE content is not available in Australia, Canada, Europe, New Zealand, United Kingdom and United States due to rights restrictions."

That sucks! Yeah I know I can find "non-official" streams but the picture quality of those is generally mediocre

Scully "No! You're bat-crap crazy."

It's amazing to see how dumb people are when it comes to tv rights. Of course live streaming on the AO website is not available in Australia because the tv rights for Australia have been sold to Network Seven and wheter any live stream is provided to the locals is up to them. The AO website can only offer live streaming to those parts of the world where the local television stations have not bought the (internet) coverage rights. ESPN has them in the USA, Eurosport in Europe etc..

Dumb you say? Really?

IMO What is dumb is people who put up with that sort of corporate inanity or, even worse, justify it.
What is dumb is penning a contract that stipulates you have to give up streaming on your own website for your own event.
What is dumb is you not realizing that contracts for TV rights can be structured in any way that the parties involved agree upon.
What is dumb is you not knowing that, for example, at the USO 2010 ESPN had TV and streaming rights and yet the USTA maintained their own rights to live stream.

And what is dumb - really, really, really dumb - is thinking that your opinion means more than any other opinion.

I wasn't justifying it, I was explaining it.

I do realise it, i know exactly that the tv broadcast rights and internet streaming rights are seperate and have to be negotiated as such. Where the hell do you take it that i don't know it??

I do know that. It is standard practice in the US for event organisers not to give TV companies exclusive deals thereby keeping their options open to themselves. In the rest of the western world however, TV companies tend to get exclusive deals.
