BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK
 
It looks almost certain that BT Vision will be announced as the new Broadcaster of the WTA Tour. The WTA will announce this news very soon.

Sad for Eurosport, but BT Vision have all the money at the moment to buy everything.

Does that mean we have to have one of those BT Vision boxes :confused:

How will it work? Will they have a separate channel?

Care to explain please :)

Quick Wikipedia check suggests they also got rights to 38 PL live games starting next season for over a billion euros. I take a wild guess and say they pay the WTA more for the UK rights alone than ES paid for the whole continent. :tape:

I don't even have the choice. BT Vision basically doesn't work where I live. Neither does Virgin.

WTA is soooo stupid
To get Money for the TV right is One Thing, but the Sponsors will Not be happy when just a Minority can watch it
And will People Pay for a Box just to watch womens Tennis? I gues Not
