We can watch French Open US Open Australian Open but cant watch Wimbledon. Is there any special reason for this :confused:

Because Wimbledon is the tournament for the GrandParents and Eurosport is too modern for them so they don't show it :(

Because the BBC own the rights to it for now and they out bought eurosport, u shouldnt complain at least you get the rest of the slams while ppl with the BBC just get Wimbledon and the final of the Aussie and RG

thats nonsense :eek:

BBC have had the rights to ALL of Aus, French Open for a long, long time.

Wimbledon is not on the EBU list of sports, so everyone is open to bid for them, and Eurosport simply cant compete financially.

Someone said that http://www.wimbledon.org is doing a really good subscription livestream service. It sounded excellent. So much so that I'm tempted even though I can get BBC interactive.. ;)

Yes, but it's not very expensive for what you get - you can even download matches that you missed. BBC interactive is available if you're in the UK from the BBC website though so I'm not quite sure it's worth it for me. I'm dithering ;)

With all due respect that's bollocks!! In the UK, provided you can get BBC interactive, this year we got live coverage of the French Open for the whole 15 days :drool:
