Does anyone know why the Tennis Channel only seems to play taped delayed matches?

I'm losing patience with this channel.

I think you are a lucky man, we cannot even see a match of WTA. Although you do not believe it. :haha:

I agree but it would be nice to have some matches live. They are showing Justine at 10:00 tonight, along time after she is finished. I like the channel and all but please get some live tennis!

My guess is that the channel in canada has the contract to the live tennis.
only a guess, considering that they use their commentating

Well maybe just hold off going online for a few hours (GASP!) and then it will be new to you. Be glad you get to watch it.

Most weeks they go live, but the Toronto stuff has been on tape delay to avoid conflicting with ESPN's coverage from Cincinnati. It's probably a contractual stipulation of their US Open Series deal.

I wish i the tennis channel. I have to rely on Eurosport for my WTA matches and that's no fun. Motor sports or cycling programmes that cut short tennis matches... repeats of the SAME matches like 3 times, when they could show other matches... showing repeats of cycling when we could see a live tennis match.

But.. it's better than nothing.
