For those who plan to ever purchase atpmastersseries.tv subscription

Just know that you will only be able to watch the matches live, and you will not be able to watch any of the matches if you were unable to watch them live. I'm saying this, because I live in California, so with the time difference I cannot watch most of the matches live because of the time difference. I thought it would be like the Wimbledon Live, where we could watch streams from previously played matches for the tournament...wrong....you only see a few minutes of highlights. For the price, I feel ripped off. I just thought I'd share this bit of info with you (that is not listed on the site before purchasing) in case you get the same impression and waste your money.

You should have assumed that there are no matches on demand because it isnt listed in their ad. It does however say match highlights and they do provide that so i dont think they are to blame.

At the beginning of the year they did advertise matches in full re-live. Didnt work though for some reason.

Re: For those who plan to ever purchase atpmastersseries.tv subscription

One of the very many reasons I stick with FREE livestreams, despite the poorer quality - I don't want to get ripped off in any case.

Re: For those who plan to ever purchase atpmastersseries.tv subscription

Question?

is it worth it to order a sports package with Fox sports network + tennis channel for $12 additional every month?

directv is a piece of shi#. I cant order the tennis channel by itself.

The quality, highlights and features are well worth the price.

ATP Pay Stream >>>>> Free Stream

And if you want to record Streams,while not being at home, use a tool like WM Videorecorder.

You can't exactly set that up on time delay or do it remotely though - can you?

An archived stream would have been great, but I enjoy atpmastersseries.tv too.

At the moment an annual pass is $49.95, E34.95

That is a special offer, $20 or E20 off. I paid full price early this year

I don't have Sky or Eurosport though so for me it is well worth it.

As a matter of fact, they used to offer full matches, and they do advertise that there are archived matches, which is limited and doesn't include any matches from 2007. And my point is not to discourage people from purchasing the service if they are able to watch the matches live. The point is to make people aware that they are not like Wimbledon Live and there archived matches do not include this week's or any of 2007 matches.

Re: For those who plan to ever purchase atpmastersseries.tv subscription

I bought the year subscription this week (that equals to $5 a tournament for 10 tournaments, worth it to me). I mostly bought it so I can watch it while I'm at work, while recording it at home. It came in handy on Tuesday and Wednesday when one of my DVD recorders decided to not record off the timer, I had watched it online at work and didn't feel I missed that much. When I come home from work, I usually don't have time to watch what I've recorded, usually that happens on the weekend. I also watched the matches that were on the second court that weren't shown on TTC, so that was quite nice. I also like that I don't have to listen to crap commentary. Now THAT is terrific!
I did look at the archive on there and there are some older matches in full, not a terrific selection, but there are a lot of highlights of older matches. Nice to watch since I missed a ton of matches between 2000-2006, I was kind of out of the tennis loop.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.
