Does NBC normally have broadcast rights at the start of the second week? I don't remember what they did last year.

All times EST
Monday (R3/4)
ESPN 7AM - 10AM; 1PM - 6PM
NBC 11AM - 2PM

Tuesday (womens quarters)
ESPN 7AM - 10AM; 1PM - 5PM
NBC 11AM - 2PM

Wednesday (mens quarters)
ESPN 7AM - 10AM; 1PM - 5PM
NBC 11AM - 2PM

Thursday (womens semis)
ESPN 7AM - 12PM
NBC 1PM - 6PM

Friday (mens semis)
ESPN 7AM - 12PM
NBC 1PM - 6PM

I've gotten used to NBC screwing tennis fans over, so I bit the bullet and paid the $25 for the live online coverage. I think it's worth it.

Re: ESPN/NBC Wimbledon coverage for next week

NBC is almost always heavily taped coverage... don't be shocked to see a set and a half of a match on espn, then coverage switch to NBC and have them show the match from the start once again

Actually, usually NBC will just buy the rights to a particular match, and ESPN won't be able to show it at all, even though it will be live during ESPN's time slot and taped during NBC's.

problem is that everywhere but eastern time zone, the coverage coincides, because ESPN airs at the same time eastern and pacific but NBC airs at the particular time in each time zone during the week.... so they will overlap on the west coast and I guess maybe mountain and central too, and when they overlap, NBC preempts ESPN and you get fishing and crap on ESPN while the rest of the country gets to see all the tennis. because of the $@#$@ crap that is the Today Show.

This is so confusing, I'm used to easy EST time So ESPN won't show tennis, NBC will be showing the tape delayed matches?

Re: ESPN/NBC Wimbledon coverage for next week

ESPN will be on early for that first block, from 4-7am or whatever, then nbc will be on from 10-1. espn2 will be on from 10-2 but from 10-1 will be preempted if it is like the last 2 years that i have lived out here, at 1 it should come back . whatever nbc shows will be exactly the same as it showed everyone else 3 hours before and we will lose 3 hours of espn's coverage

This is the one week a year I hate living in California

Re: ESPN/NBC Wimbledon coverage for next week

Ohhhhh okay, got it. Sorry about all my confusion.

That is completely ridiculous. Do people seriously care that much about the Today Show? lol. I never realized that I've been lucky to be on the East Coast during Wimbledon coverage, until now.

Thanks Deb

Re: ESPN/NBC Wimbledon coverage for next week

apparently they do care but hell if I know why I just wonder why NBC bothers. On Thursday and Friday it's even better NBC's coverage is at 1pm eastern, so that'd be 10am Pacific, i.e. there'd be no problem with the today show and they could just air it at 10am simultaneously with the east coast, but instead, the local LA syndicate is showing a repeat of the Martha Stewart Show AND an hour of LOCAL news and starting tennis at noon pacific. Just classic

Re: ESPN/NBC Wimbledon coverage for next week

Martha Stewart!? Are you kidding me!? I can't believe I have to be in California this particular week. The only thing NBC manages to do is wreck what should be the best tennis coverage of the year.
