Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Why is this all cloaked in secrecy?

I wonder why the hell they just don't announce it one way or the other. These 'sources' must have come from somewhere.

Fuck you very much WTA. they may have got more money but will this really improve the popularity of the Tour if many people can't watch the fucking sport?

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

I hate BT. I'm not going to fork out for BT Vision, so no WTA for me anymore.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Awww fuck. I thought this was going to be a new channel (like a replacement for ESPN) and be available for Sky and Virgin customers.

So you actually have to buy BT Vision to get it? I can do with missing out on a few football matches a season, but disappointed to lose out completely on the WTA.

Would have thought Sky Sports would be the preferred bidder, what with the growing interest in Watson and Robson at the moment.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

It seems EU countries with no coverage can watch the tennistv.com coverage. (Atleast now there are also Premier events shown as highlights, where it before was ''covered'')

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Since I don't know what BT Vision, a quick wikipedia says it announced a deal with Eurosport on November 8th. Maybe they'll get the rights and decide when and how to air content, and have a sharing deal with ES?

Yes it's a joke. I wanted subscribe next year. But its just ATP and a little bit WTA, beside from the Internationals. So 90 € a year is to much if you just want watch WTA.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

tennistv.com is not going to be a proper second option for all of us. The WTA plan is more and more turning out to be a total flop.

Wait people still haven't posted sources. Have BT Vision got the rights or not and if so what is the package outline?
