It says it's for UK only but maybe someone can tell non-UK people how to access it by hiding their location.


Anyhow, I was watching the Hantuchova vs. Camerin match but it's stopped by rain and they're showing highlights of the 2004 final.

I'm using Windows Media Player and there's a problem with the sound but only for the commentators. Their voices are slowed down! They sound like whales. I'm giggling a lot because of that. :lol:

is the quality better than at wimbledon live?

It's the same, I think. A lot of pauses and buffering. :(

Is anyone else having the same slowed down sound problem with Windows Media Player? :lol:

"Beeeeeeeep!" "Faaaauuuullttt!"

It's the 2004 final right now and Maria's and Serena's grunts and shrieks sound particularly amusing and the commentators are hilarious. :haha:

I doubt you can ´hide´ your location as every computer has its very own IP-adress which tells the country your accessing from.

You can hide your location for sure. I know for a fact that people use it to watch the US-only ABC stream of the TV series Lost from outside the USA.
