I finally got Sky installed and I havn't done much research but I think the last time I looked there were two Sky Sports packages to choose from. Can someone tell me the best for tennis coverage including the price?

getting all the sky sports channels is quite costly, and during the winter they only show really random stuff that no body is interested in...but during the tennis seasons they do show a lot of it, and it's definitly worth getting...but pricey!  Rolling Eyes
if you don't get the sky sports channels - you are stuck with 2 europsort channels - they don't show as much tennis, actually not as near the amount sky sports show, but it's free....nothing to pay - and they do show some tourneys...but not all....however they garauantee to show all the finals of all the tournaments!

any clearer Mark?!  Very Happy  (not sure about exact prices - i got sky about 3 years ago so all has changes with package sytems!)

Although the highlights of the Semis today were shown on Sky Sports 2 but I would recommend on getting all the sport channels and find Eurosoprt show a lot of the Women's Tour events.  Although they are good fot the Grand Slams.

Unless you like women's tennis, then you absolutely have to have Sky Sports.

They cover all the Master's Series, plus Davis Cup ( not Britain as that's on the Beeb) and the US Open with multi choice screens on most of those tournaments.

I loathe EuroSport. They are patchy in their coverage, although they do cover ATP Gold and International Tournaments, but when and who is a real lottery.

The downside of Sky is having to listen to Barry Cowan and Sam Smith. Cowan brings a new meaning to banality, so invest in ear plugs.  :P

It's not cheap, but it IS the best. Smile

Woah, Sky Sports is very expensive!

For Sky Sports 1 and 3 or Sky Sports 2 and 3 it's £13 a month on top of my £15 a month. But I don't think either of those packages are good for tennis coverage are they? So if I was to buy Sky Sports 1, 2, 3, Xtra it would cost £19 extra.

It's a lot of money Crying or Very sad

P.S. Do those prices sound about right?

'Fraid so Mark.  I think we pay around £42 per month for the full package, including movies and all sports.  Shock  I have to say, though, we very seldom watch anything but the Sky Channels now, and we defintely watch more sport than anything else.  Sky Sports Xtra is a must for tennis.

Elly's right, Mark.

It's very expensive for students, I know, but SSExtra is THE channel for men's tennis. I dont suppose you have any rich relatives?  :P

The only sport I love is tennis but I will atleast pay for Sky Sports for the big tennis events, not sure whether to pay every month though.

Yea i recently got sky sports (all the sports channels) added to watch tennis. Ive already got  cable (ntl) on the phone and computer cos of my nursing studies so adding sky cost me an extra 23 pounds. Crying or Very sad  I got a discount of 10 a month for 6 months but still on a nursing bursery it all adds up! So instead of rave ups in nottingham town (300 pubs and clubs in a 1 mile square) Very Happy I have joined the nottingham tennis center (lta and it has the nottingham open there) and play on the adult social nite. So now i can watch Murray Shock  improve my tennis stay fit and alchohol free... every cloud unfortunately still single Frown
