Can someone answer this ? re: streaming please?

Has anyone around the world had any streaming of the SEO prior to first Saturday?

The reason I ask is that there are cameras on 8 courts here and banks of monitors on every concourse in the stadium show what is going on on all the time, like livestream, except without close up shots and without commentary. Basically static cameras. Point is, this could be used to give a livestream feed on 8 courts--if they wanted.

Of course, that's what separates a 5th or 6th slam like IW or Miami where there are record crowds and ground pass sales only on first weekend from a 67th slam like Beijing where you've got livestream galore, empty stadiums and no one buys tickets. I reckon the tournament directors of "baby slams" actually do know what they're doing, but I'm honestly curious to know if anyone saw the court coverage from the Miami outer courts (1,2,3,6,7,8) this week?

I thought Tennis Channel had coverage today in the US? Euuope didn't get any feed off of that?

I had been watching Almagro-Goffin and Ferrer-Tomic, but there were more matches. Indeed, it indicates that they are streaming Djokovic-Baghdatis right now. I suppose there were also female matches, but I didn't realize.

Mariajo | Suárez | García Vidagany | Pous | Soler
Nadal | Almagro | Ferrer | Granollers | Robredo | Riba | Andújar
Torró | Arruabarrena | Muguruza | Costas | Sorribes

Very weird, but I guess that doesn't really surprise me. Tennis Channel seems to neglect the WTA in dual events.

But like I said above, the technology is in place right now--cameras are actually ON THE COURTS--all they would need to do is flip some switches and transmit the signal internationally via a satellite signal and voila, instant livestream. There's got to be a way they could black it out in the US and even central/south America to encourage people to attend while still transmitting overseas.

Apparently Serena and Sharapova's matches were shown on Tennis Channel.

For attendance purposes they'd only need to block it out in the Miami area or Florida as a whole. It's not like many people outside of there would be going or not going based on live streaming being available.

Re: Can someone answer this ? re: streaming please?

So stupid. Last week we missed the epic Vika vs. Barthel match. And now we missed the comeback matches of Kleybanova, Clijsters, and the Williams sisters. Really frustrating and we also missed Venus vs. Kvitova. But the men get streams for journeymen

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

You've got to be kidding. People come here from everywhere to vacation.

I understand how younger fans on tennis boards think but the majority of people who go see tennis in person are normal people who work hard and play hard, traveling the globe when they have time off, to indulge the pursuits they are passionate about, rather than obsess about them from behind a keyboard.

This tournament has fans from all over the globe--I've spent the first week here the past 6 years and can tell you for a fact that English is probably spoken by 20-25% of the fans in attendance here as their primary language. You hear Spanish, French, German, Russian, Czech, Polish, Serbian, Portuguese, Chinese....huge international attendance.

So glad to be of amusement...

Just how many people would have stayed home if there was live streaming though? Given the money and travel time they put into it, I'd guess that it wouldn't affect too many. But what do I know?

You never know. People are having to tighten the belt these days. And the point is, blackouts have been used to get people out to the events. Miami is not a "US" city so much as it is a cosmopolitan one, and the organizers know this. Giving product with such high demand away for free is terrible business.
