Do they show all their sports on a certain TV channel, or is it shown online, because I can never find where they are showing tennis at.

Eurosport have their own tv channel.

Nov 6th, 2002, 06:26 PM
Eurosport actually has 3 different channels;
(Henman) British Eurosport
Eurosport news

The best tennis is on the 1st one.

Nov 6th, 2002, 06:28 PM
Eurosport is available in europe obviously and SKY television in the UK and cable it think.

Nov 6th, 2002, 06:29 PM
Do they show different matches on Eurosport Int. from British Eurosport?

Nov 6th, 2002, 06:36 PM
It shows more Henman, Nina ;) I think in different countries they concentrate more on their home players but often when we start watching a programme commentators say "welcome British Eurosport viewers" or do everyone get that?

Sky channel 412 and 413

British Eurosport doesn't show Wimbledon and only show the first week of the US Open!!!

Nov 6th, 2002, 07:05 PM
Eurosport Int don't show Wimbledon either but they do show the whole US Open

Nov 6th, 2002, 07:14 PM
Did Sky Sports have all the rights to the seond week of the US Open in terms of broadcasting here in Britain?

Is there really a difference between British and European Eurosport? I always thought it was only the commenators.

Nov 6th, 2002, 10:54 PM
yeah, there are some differences. as mention above the US Open the European Eurosport showed the whole tournament while the british one showed only the first week. I know this because i sent an email to them and they told me that.

I`m not sure but think that european eurosport shows Wimbledon as well but here in UK it`s shown on BBC channels.

Nov 6th, 2002, 11:00 PM
We get BBC too, so I always watch TWimbledon on BBC.

Guys - used to work there... so....

Eurosport international - is the main channel broadcast via satellite to 54 countries in Europe and in 18 languages.

There are two regional variations of this - British Eurosport and Eurosport France. British Eurosport is a partnership with NTL and Eurosport France is a partnership with Canal+.

British Eurosport will show the exact same events as Eurosport International with tennis- but sometimes some extra's if a British player does well such as showing San Jose a coupple of years ago when Rusedski beat Agassi in the final. They will always show the same tennis except at the Grand Slams - where they may focus on more British matches if Tim and Greg are playing as the rattings are huge in the UK then.

The other difference is the US Open. Eurosport International has the full European rights to the two weeks live, but SKY Sports already had the UK rights - and as British Eurosport is carried on the SKY TV platform in the UK - they couldn't piss SKY off too much - so came to a deal where they can only show live matches in the forst week of the US Open and show highlights in the second.

Eurosport France is allowed to have a completely different schedule compared to the rest of Eurosport.

Eurosportnews is a 24 hour sports news channel which will carry live results and features from events.

Eurosport.com - carries live results too.

Hope this helps. Colin

Yeah that's right Colin, I have British and French Eurosport and at times they show totally different programmes and also in the slams sometimes I get the luck to follow two different matches.

I think Germany has their own version now too, well I heard that from somebody on another board!

Nov 7th, 2002, 11:01 AM
I have Eurosport International in Belgium but the commentators are English and theyre often talking like only Brittish people watch. Like "oh yes and its at that time CET for EI viewers".

Nov 7th, 2002, 07:10 PM
I have British Eurosport with British Commentators and I'm fed up with them!!! :)

Niratti - Its the same English Language commentators on British Eurosport and Eurosport International at the same time...

There are 10 million homes who get British Eurosport and virtually none in the UK now who have Eurosport International via English - just hotels around Europe and a few expats on the costa del sol - hence why they bias it towards UK when commentating in English...

Irma - no German version yet - but maybe in future as winter sports rates so well in Germany..

Angelica - You can have it in French, Dutch or Flemish - you just need to change your freequency of how you receive your signal so that you can get it in your own language....

I am impressed by eurosport! there are no commercials during the night sessions in L.A. no commercials between the games and that's cool. and also new

Nov 8th, 2002, 08:15 AM
They probably couldnt sell any advertising space :-))) he he

Nov 8th, 2002, 08:59 AM
They assume no one is watching
