Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Yer I didn't notice this slip under the radar. This is a terrible terrible decision. Very very few people will subscribe to BT Vision for the tennis. The only vague saving grace is BT Vision will get a lot of new subscribers due to Premier League football. However when all is said and done less than 20% of people who have access to Eurosport will have access to BT Vision. Alienating your fan base simply isn't the way forward. And womens tennis will probably lose more ground on mens tennis in this country as a result of this at a time it should have been gaining ground (as a result of Heather and Laura).

BT sport pledges to show 800 hours of the WTA tour from 21 countries including Indian Wells, Miami, Beijing and Istanbul. In 2013 BT sport will share the rights with Eurosport but in 2014 will be the exclusive owner to the rights. So here's the guide on the tennis action on the new channel shown in the first four days of launch which is covering the Southern Californian open:-

Well that's one major advance on Eurosport - BT will actually show live tennis through the night which Eurosport would almost never do outside the Aussie Open.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

that's already an improvement- BT will cover matches at night.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

There are numerous pages of this thread missing.

EDIT: I'm thinking of the ES won't show tennis outside Slams thread.

Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK

Wow that looks very good. Not showing the night matches live has irked me for years with Eurosport.
