Anyone use tennistv.com? « on: August 23, 2011, 01:52 PM »

Hi, I currently watch tennis on Sky Sports but as I am trying to save some money (it is the only sport we watch) I was wondering about tennistv.com. Is it any good/cheaper than sky? Does anyone on the forum use it?
Cheers, muzzamad

Hi! I have used it but now use Bet 365. Advantages of tennistv is that you get a full screen which somehow I've not managed yet on Bet 365. But Bet is a only fiver and you get the choice of many more matches. Also, I've found the quality of the stream better. I found tennistv quite limited in number of matches it showed.
Think you can buy a tournament for a small sum, so you could try it?

I use it and yes you get a full screen. Quality is usually good. Now we get all the WTA matches as well. And way more tournaments. They used to focus only on the Masters. They have a chatroom also.

I've been using TennisTV.com for at least 3 years now, and I'm very happy with it.  I certainly wouldn't pay out for Sky TV just to watch tennis!  The only problem with TennisTV is that they don't cover the slams, presumably because they are not ATP tournaments.  The BBC has coverage of 3 of the slams but not USO, so I'll be searching around for dodgy streams for the next two weeks.

ETA - I understand that the USO is on Eurosport, so I've just taken out a month's subscription to Eurosport player for £3.99.  They are now showing highlights of last year's final.

I'm sorry, blueberryhill, that you have wasted your money.  I am extremely disappointed that Eurosport player have not shown Andy's match nor any other British players.  I shall be writing to tell them that they took my money under false pretences.

Not sure how they can stream matches of the British women when the courts they are on don't have TV cameras on them.

What are the best free streams for the US open? I use the selection from www.fromsport.com - various companies streaming mostly Eurosport. Wii Cast is usually quite good quality, though you can't tell who is streaming it till you hit fromsport's link.

Sometimes I can find one with english commentary, sometimes foreign only and sometimes none at all. Anyone found a free stream that always has english commentary>

Update re Eurosport Player - this is the email I've received back from them today:

Due to rights restrictions, not all events broadcast on Eurosport are available on British Eurosport, that is the case for the US Open. However, this aspect of the service is under regular review with new events added as rights become available. We do apologise and are refunding you your monthly subscription.
