I think that's very probable

BT Sport gonna be only place to watch WTA in UK & Ireland. Seems like good coverage tho!

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

800 hours per year. Take out the off-season, slams and a couple of empty weeks in the schedule and you're looking at about 24 hours a week, so something around 12-14 matches a week maybe?

Well not the only place because:

The new sports channels will be made available to Sky viewers but will also be aggressively marketed to existing BT customers, with deals for those who also subscribe to its telephone, broadband and television services.
. From which I gather the BT channels will be launching on Sky as well. I'll admit to not understanding how this works though, it seems a bit fractured, how will Sky incorporate BT sports into their existing packages?

Does it say anywhere in the article that the deal is exclusive? The reason I ask is that British Eurosport has been showing promos saying they will be broadcasting WTA all season long.

So does that mean they are divvying up the tournaments between the two channels? Or are ES gonna have to retract their claim.

As the BT channels aren't supposed to launch until Summer it's possible that it is a 4 year contract starting next year.

It's not really fractured at all. All the WTA Premier tournaments (at least) will be on the BT Sport channels for 4 years. The channels will be available via the BT Vision, Sky and, presumably, Virgin platforms.

BT Sport won't be part of Sky's packages. They will be additional subscription channels just like ESPN is now.

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

Eurosport will share the coverage with BT Vision this season as BT doesnt launch till Aug.

Hearing its £5 for BT customers but £20 to subscribe to the BT sports channels if you are on Sky

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

I hope they will find a proper solution asap. The current situation in terms of WTA-tennis live on tv in Germany is a complete nogo.

£20 seems quite steep for a channel that doesn't seem to offer much more (qualitatively) than ESPN does at present. Doesn't bother me as I would pay that for the tennis alone, but I can see it deterring many people.

£20 is very steep, especially if you are already paying Sky Sports to watch the men's. You'd have thought they would start off priced low to attract subscribers.
