No he/she is talking about Select TV, which is another brand (Is that what you call them?) of pay tv. :)

To the thread starter, would you be able to let me know how the coverage is? I am VERY interested in getting pay tv, because tennis coverage on free to air in Australia is non-existent. :rolleyes: Anyway thanks if you can :D

I've had this channel for a while, it's definitely worth the money I reckon. Coverage is pretty good. I think they show all Tier I's and Tier II's. My only complaint is they usually only feature one match per day, but they do tend to show more matches from the QF onwards.

If you're a Martina fan (like me) then you'll be pleased because they love showing her matches.

For any Aussies wanting more tennis to watch, it's the way to go. It's only $29.95 a month (pretty reasonable), but from memory I think $400 for installation.

Sounds brilliant!

I'm a huge martina fan (hence the name ;) )...so i'm really looking forward to this! :D

Just checked their tv guide on their website (only show the next week), and i can see they are showing the Warsaw semi's 10pm saturday!...looking good already!

oh, and my installation cost $250 instead of $400 because there was already a satellite dish on the roof....it just needed to be re-positioned, and i needed to get a set top box.

Yes they are showing Warsaw Semis and Finals and then from Round 2 of Berlin until the Finals.

Well done Martinafan. Your coverage is in English too which is good. It is the Eurosport Asia channel I think.

I was thinking of getting Select TV but I decided to subscribe to the French language versions of Eurosport 1 & 2 because I wanted more coverage even if it is in another language. So to get both channels it costs me about $59 a month and it is via a company called LBF.

I am pretty sure that we are getting about 4 hours a day for Berlin on the French Eurosport channels.

We are so lucky to have a choice now where we can choose to have Eurosport if we wish. I am hoping that one day the Eurosport Channel will be available via Foxtel so we don't need seperate dishes and seperate accounts. But in the meantime, I am happy with both. Fox Sports for mens tennis and Eurosport for womens! :bounce:

Here is the Eurosport TV guide link for those who have the Asia / Pacific version (found on the bottom of the screen)

And if you have the same French satellite service that I receive, via LBF, here is the Eurosport TV guide site:
