Eurosport, 6th August, 1AM European Time
Mixed Doubles Final

Nice, guys. But still no doubles :mad:
Let's notice that this year Eurosport will show only WTA matches live (except when there are only ATP matches)

Yeah that's what French commentators said. And on Eurosport player website, it's written "All matches WTA live + all matches WTA/ATP recorded"

They showed mixed doubles final in 2005 (I should remember) and planned to do the same in 2006 as well, but decided not to do so afterall. Don't know exactly why.

this still means that british eurosport will see endless recordings of murray matches though, right? even probably when they could show live wta matches, they'll probably show recordings of murray. :rolleyes:

though i hope im wrong ;)

hmm...they will show Schruff-Makarova instead of Federer/Nadal/Djokovic vs. whoever?
Well, the WTA match I wrote is not likely to be played on any of big courts... :lol:

I think this is good news but a couple of men's matches wouldn't do that harm..

Does the International ES has the rights to show live ATP matches? If there is no interesting WTA match they still won't show Nadal or FedEx? Strange...

What *Jean* said only applies to ES France because another channel bought the rights to broadcast the US Open ATP matches.

Mixed instead of Women's Doubles ... I'm ambiguous :shrug: I wish they'd show both.
And hopefully my faves get to both finals :D

Weird. I thought Slam TV rights were only sold as a package, and there wasn't even the option to buy only the men's or women's matches.

Canal+ vient d’acquérir les droits exclusifs de diffusion en direct du tableau masculin de l’US Open. Eurosport (chaîne du groupe TF1), seul diffuseur français de l’épreuve depuis 2001 et normalement jusqu’en 2012, diffusera uniquement l’épreuve féminine en direct. Les épreuves masculines seront diffusées par Eurosport, mais en différé, les chaines du Groupe Canal + ayant l'exclusivité du direct sur le tableau masculin.

Selon nos confrères du journal "L'Equipe", la chaîne cryptée a en effet obtenu la rétrocession des droits TV du tableau masculin (pour cette année) donnant en échange à TF1 les images des championnats étrangers de football pour l'émission Téléfoot (TF1).



From what I understand it is a deal between Canal+ and TF1 (ES owner)
so Canal+ did not actually buy the rights.

Thanks for the info.

Eurosport (chaîne du groupe TF1)

Shame on me - I had never bothered to check who owned ES.

I wonder why their programming has such a clear Benelux+Germany slant when the mother ship is French. Maybe said mother ship saves the best of French sports for itself and leaves only dreck and leftovers for ES?
