Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

I don't know about the reruns but Sport1 has been showing WTA from IW and Miami live. Coverage for Miami started on Monday (three days after Supertennis). Most of the WTA matches haven't been shown...

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

A satellite dish aimed at hotbird (13E) and a receiver that is HD capable. If you have those then you can watch Supertennis.

Re: WTA Paris coverage?

Sport1 is showing Paris starting on Friday (14.00 Sport1 Extra1). But they're also showing Davis Cup which is getting priority over WTA Paris. As a result on Saturday coverage starts at 17.30. On the...

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

I was under the impression this was one of the tournaments that would be shown on ES Int. But I had a look at the schedule for ES Germany and ES NL and neither are showing any matches from this...

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

It's SD and their channel dedicated to tennis is only available on cable and a few other platforms (not satellite).

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

Fingers crossed indeed that they will show earlier rounds also from other tournaments. It's annoying that there isn't a full schedule available online what they intend on showing. From the tournament...

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

Yes it's available free in HD, so you need a receiver that is capable of receiving HD. The channel can be found on this transponder: 12476.00H 29900 3/4. I'm still hoping a FTA German station will...

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

What does the text in Italian say? Last year supertennis was available FTA on hotbird in HD. Will it remain FTA or will it become part of a Sky package?

Where is it that you see those adds where they are promoting WTA events on Sport1? I have yet to come across any information about their coverage. I still have my doubts about Sport1 when it comes to...

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

Those are the two reasons why I don't see tennistv.com as a real alternative to watching tennis on TV. I know I can hook up my laptop to my TV but still. Also I like to capture matches which I won't...

It did appear in some TV shedules that British ES would show it. But it has since then been removed from the schedule.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Actually they had a year to arrange contracts on a country by country basis. The deal with Perform was announced at the end of 2011. You could argue that the WTA should've acted when they saw only a...

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Admittedly it's somewhat of an oversimplification. The only tournaments ES can acquire the rights for in 2013 and beyond are the international ones. The WTA has made a deal with Perform to sell the...

Re: Roland Garros Tickets

Tickets for court 1 are numbered, so it's best to assign a day to each of you and your friends so you'll have seats that are located next to each other. I had the cheapest tickets for court 1 and was...

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

Yes Sport1 has bought the WTA rights here in the Netherlands. It's a pay channel which costs 15 euros a month (which includes football, basketball, golf). At the moment they already have the ATP...

Re: WTA CEO Stacey Allaster said....Eurosport deal was because of Serena.

When Puma signed Serena the owner of Puma wanted to be sure the matches would be shown on tv. So he reached out to his connections and the deal with ES was made. That's in short what was said by...

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

That might very well have something to do with it, if they also bought those rights. At the moment I still have doubts about the level of commitment from sport1, will be interesting to see what the...

Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams

Not unexpected but still it's sad that today will mark the end of the WTA/ES era. 14 years of tennis on ES. Perhaps ES will pick up some of the smaller tournaments next year. Unless they can put...
