Karma. Maybe this will FINALLY teach them to prioritise nurturing their existing fanbase, rather than going after the biggest pay packet (in the short term). That goes for the way they give out 'exclusivity' deals to US stations (the WTA accepts extra cash from US stations to NOT sell coverage of the first few days of US tournaments, which US broadcasters typically don't show, to other broadcasters) and who they give big tournaments to, too.
It's just BT vision won't be airing till Aug so ES will cover till then
Also it might be that ES will show on Weekends when BT has football/rugby

It seems like the WTA is crawling back to Eurosport now. Wonder how much they are paying now.
I think I can only change the title once we know more for the whole of Europe though?
None of us know the details between WTA and Perform/IEC. It´s more likely the contract between Perform/IEC and BT Vision has contract clauses that demand that they have to provide a certain amount of live coverage from all/a number of events or they face contractual penalties. Remember that was one of the breaking points in their negotiations with Eurosport, that the WTA wanted some broadcasting guarantees. So maybe Eurosport just lucked out that BT Vision didn´t have their own platform ready till July. Afterall BT Vision owns the broadcasting rights in the UK. Unless they breached some part of the contract, figured they want the WTA presence till their own channel launches in July or have received a substantial offer from ES they have little incentive to re-sell the rights (if they are allowed to). I doubt it´s the WTA begging Eurosport directly.

Eurosport might have felt a little pressure of their own from viewers and customers, who weren´t so keen to see the Under 16 African women´s youth football championship all year instead of Maria Sharapova.

I don't see anything on TV2Sport site or on their TextTV. AFAIK WTA is selling tournament by tournament.

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

Btw, Brisbane and Sydney will be on TV 2 Sport, after that its on a so far unknown Viasat channel...

My guess so also Norway and Sweden have coverage from 22 tournaments...

sources?

and how common is that WTA sells part of the tournaments to different broadcasters?

The time works for WTA & Co in UK with every match Robson and Watson wins and rising on the rankings. It wasnt accident that last year ESPN showed Palermo and such MM tournaments in UK just because of Robson.

And most likely the same as you would get on TV.

For some people TennisTV is the only option as it isn`t televised where they are. Last year I had the majority of Mandatory semis and finals shown but hardly any were shown live - most were shown in the middle of the night.

Before this year you actually had the option of WTA or ATP for only $70 a year. I actually held out for as long as possible before signing up for a year but gave in after bad TV coverage and streams not working very well.

Are you confusing the tennis channel with tennistv.com? They stream live, with the chance to catch up matches already streamed.
