View Full Version : Eurosport coverage is terrible !

In the first week they will only start at 10.30 PM because of Athletics WC. :fiery:

I'm interested in the WC as well, but in Germany we have full coverage of it anyway in ARD/ZDF, so it's wasted time on Eurosport. :mad:

poor u guys
we're ok here with Sky Sports doing it as they have main rights for UK

I'm gonna be watching both... really mad with the timing of both at same time :mad: :fiery:

I hate this coverage (eventhough I like athletics, but they will be already covered on so many other channels ...).

When is the final (women) supposed to be? Because I can't find it live on Eurosport schedule, only taped.

From the US open site

The ladies final will "Saturday, September 6 at 8 p.m EST" which I think means it will be 01:00 in the UK and 02:00 in mainland Europe.

This is one hour earlier than last year to put it on prime time TV in the USA.

I'll only watch the athletics until the tennis coverage starts on Sky.

how can they show the boring Athletics WC? :eek:

this is full bullshit

I think rtl 5 will show the whole tournament live and if they threat it the same as they did with wimbledon then I am more then satisfied:)

Eggy, Kajsa will have restraining orders put on you LOL!

I love athletics, but I hate all those stupid head sets they wear. I keep expecting Colin Jackson to break out singing Like a Virgin.

Anyway Im glad we get goos coverage through Sky in the UK.

Wow the 2 best sports clashing I'll have to cut 10 secs out of Amélies matches if they interfere with Miss Merlene Otteys races - she's only the oldest ever World Athletics Championships participant at 43! *soon to be oldest medalist too*
