Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

If true, what do I have to get myself to watch it? How does the BT Vision works?

It looks like they are going to be fragmented accross different channels as ESPN has bought the rights for Estoril and Strasbourg & Sofia

No, they're not WTA Premier events. While their televising is welcome, they're tournaments that weren't part of the main WTA package anyway.

That refers to 2012, but hopefully they'll continue to show tennis in 2013.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Slight aside - don;t know how many people have seen the following news that the BBC is reducing it's Red Button service - http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcintern...n_changes.html

This means only one option on the Red Button at Wimbledon, rather than the 5 now - very bad news imo.

Ouch. That will really ruin week one at Wimbly, but at least

Good news for UK fans, but sadly not for non-UK fans, as the online Wimbly streams are UK only.

Well spotted, Wally1.

By this, I presume they mean the App that's now available for Smart TV's that lets you watch the live streams & clips from the BBC Sport website on the TV via Wifi.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

If BT Vision are to be the people bringing WTA Premier events, then it looks like they're going to keep us waiting for a while...

Oh, I have no problem with that. I'm planning on getting BT Vision. At least the deal has been made and finalised.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Do we know for sure they have got the rights - has there been an official announcement?

Though given we're weeks away and have heard nothing from anyone it would make sense for BT to have bought them since why bother mentioning it until closer to the launch of the channel in Summer.

If they do have the rights they could always resell them for the next 6 months at a cheap price just to get some money for them - that's what Channel 4 are doing for the World Athletics Champs next year - maybe British Eurosport would take them.

Someone has bought the rights, but there's no obligation on them to announce it until they want to. If it was Sky/Eurosport/ESPN, then it would most likely be announced by them. BT might well be happy to sit on it until much closer to their launch, meaning we might not see any WTA prems until the American summer swing. Agreed, reselling the rights to UK Eurosport until the summer makes sense, but maybe they can't/don't wish to.
