One asked if ES can get more Mens 500'er , they can't because like now with the womens the Rights have been sold one by one (mainly) and the Nordic Canal Digital own by Telenor, don't wanna share the coverage with ES...

Both are premium TV channels (I'm assuming MCS is) and probably won't be to happy if their premium content is available on a free to air station.

The whole structure of ES International and the country specific editions could still mean some versions will still have WTA tennis next year. For example in the past few years British ES has shown slightly more tennis then ES International.

Overall I do think this is a bad move from the WTA. Probably some media rights company has been telling them their rights are worth more then what they currently make with the ES deal. In the short term this could be the case, in the long run it'll mean less coverage.
The same thing happened in 1999 when Eurosport lost the Super Nines (renamed Masters) tournaments and a Swiss company called ISL bought the rights to distribute to pay channels. ISL promptly went bust in 2001, however, pay channels took coverage which was a pity.

But now with all of these online streams it almost doesn't matter anymore, picture quality is not always the best but at least there is access.

Sub-Saharan Africa probably got the WTA wet, we know they love any place with no freaking fans. Wait till Premier Mandatory Madrid becomes Kinshasha in about 3 years with two spectators and some corrupt dictator in attendance for the final.

They're "expanding" the tour to new territories

No official word yet but don't count on them showing tennis next year. ES International is the version shown in countries in Europe that don't have their own country specific version of ES. For instance here in Holland we have ES International.

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

really bad news. i'm someone who can't stand crappy live streams, so i guess this means i'll only be able to watch the slams (minus wimbledon) next year.

Post of the week.

but also sadly true. The WTA clearly has been paying way too much attention to suits presenting Powerpoints with bullshit about "emerging markets".

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

The TennisTV stream doesn't work on my laptop for some reason but fine on my iPad and then through apple tv.

The streams drive me insane. As that is all I had for Olympics apart for the final.

Production manager on Swedish Eurosport just said info is not correct, TV companies are in negotiations atm and nothing is yet certain!

It was also said in the OP's post... they are still negotiations... so we'll see...

Where did you hear or read this? Email? It could be that Eurosport Nordic has a decent chance.

Didn't the German response already say that they won't have WTA next season?

What if Eurosport is considering making a move when the ATP rights are up? That's after next year so maybe they don't want a multiyear deal with the WTA? I also think that's a reason why it could be very difficlt for WTA to reach a good deal with any network.
