It's the only GS tourney that they seem to ignore. Being EUROsport, they should voluntarily cover it with or without permission. :lick:

Basically, the EU has a rule whereby countries can choose their five (I think) most important sporting events, which have to be available on 'free-to-air' TV channels. So the BBC has the rights to cover Wimbledon, so Eurosport doesn't. And thank heavens for that, terrestrial coverage of tennis is bad enough in this country, we wouldn't want to see Wimbledon disappear onto cable/satellite.

why can't BBC share it with other sports channel? If Eurosport could broadcast the US Open, Oz Open, and RG Open, why not this Wimby.:mad:

I think wimbledon costs more because it's seen at the tournament of tournaments by (non) tennis fans

I wouldn't like it if the Wimbly coverage changed from BBC to Eurosport... BBC is so much fun to watch, the best coverage from all slams IMO

Don't you receive BBC BasicTennis?

Indeed, even if it was raining they kept it entertaining.... or maybe that was due to the fact that I was supposed to be studying instead of watching? Everything gets interesting at that time, no?

I only get BBC World and BBC Prime. :sad: , which BBC channel is it?

Eurosport needs to fight for this...they're not EUROsport for nothing. :rolleyes:

The belgian one is really boring and sometimes I get the impression that he has no clue what he's talking about. Then you the Dutch woman, she has some good stories, but here voice is nasal (don't know if the spelling is correct) and annoying
