Angry Star Sports channel is very boring.

Star Sports, one of the big name in sport broadcasting in Asia, should stop braodcasting live Wimbledon. That's my feeling. But it won't stop.

The first day of Wimbledon 2004. After rain interruption I was watching 5 different matches in hours. I'm still wondering how could they do that ? The first live match was Federer's match. After Rogi broke serve, they moved to Martina's court, she was leading 5-0 or something and when she closed out the first set, they moved to Paradorn's match, watching it for a while, but when Ivo broke Paradorn's serve, back to Martina's match and when it finished, now they showed me Sugiyama's match, then back to Paradorn's match again until the rain came.When the sky was clear. Then a chance to see Rogi closed out the match and back to Paradorn's defeat. Then they moved to centre court where Goran was leading in the middle of the first set. I'd never had a chance to see any whole match at all. Normally it should be broadcast one match at a time. They may want to broadcast as much as they could so the viewers can watch every important matches. But they forgot something I just said. Noone could see any whole match and enjoys it right from the start and never knows what is the turning point. That's very boring.

THe second day was still the same. Moreover TV commercials are always too long. When they came back, it was like 15-0 or 30-0. I was very upset. And would you believe it when there is still a live match to broadcast , they won't show live but they showed players interview. I just want to see the game.

ANy better channel ?

Anyone from HongKong ? would you tell this channel that they are doing something very boring. This upset viewers.

Re: Star Sports channel is very boring.

Yes the first day coverage was very confusing, switching from one match to another with no reason. Took away all my interest in following the coverage.

I had feedback to them through email, hopefully things will get better.

Re: Star Sports channel is very boring.

Haha, Star Sports - here in India I call that 'Cricket Channel' along with ESPN. But I won't say that the commentators are stupid though.

As per the coverage, I think they were broadcasting(recorded) other matches that happend during that day, during rain delay instead of the showing courts covered. But all this confusions will last only until the quarter final stages. They don't the Semi's and Final's live.


Isy,
I don't think email-ing such things would be any use though.

Re: Star Sports channel is very boring.

I'm on starsports too and I have to agree the programming was hella choppy! It'll get better when there're less matches though...then they'll focus. Or at least that's what happened during the French Open. I prefer Supersports, less adverts.

Anyway, everyone's big on Euro04 now...I mean they get their own channel yo!

Re: Star Sports channel is very boring.

well, I used to listen Thai commentators because I'm sick of those Star Sports commentators since they ,in my opinion, "take sides". Now I'm also sick of my own commentators as they know a little about tennis.

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

Re: Star Sports channel is very boring.

Very terrible...
For AO and french Open, I will look forward eagerly every day to catch all the live telecasts from Supersports and hear the knowledge commentators, Fred Stolle, John Barrett comment on the matches and the players' technique.

So far , I can only bear watching bits and pieces of Starsports' telecast... Simply awful and biased. I dun even think I will be eager to switch onto the channel....

US Open gonna be the same nightmare...

AAAAhhhh...I left a similar message on a similar thread in wtaworld. So glad I'm not the only one that wants to throw my shoe at the tv watching Star Sports coverage of tennis. Agree abt French and AO coverage being miles better.
The rain and the sucky coverage on Star Sports is totally spoiling my enjoyment of Wimbledon :-(

Re: Star Sports channel is very boring.

I agree- Supersports is wayy better than Starspots.

I hate the people running the show too, especially when you get to see so much of their ignorance with all the rain delays. They don't even know the URL of the wta website...AND they choose to discuss fan's questions like "I'm a big fan of Elena Dementieva. Can you tell me her email address?" Like hello?

It's just annoying. I hate to compare this to football on ESPN but the live programming there is so seamless and professional and the hosts and the commentators actually give GOOD insights, knowledgable insights.

Urgh, starsports annoys me! They need to stop being so sloppy just cuz they have "exclusive" rights.

Re: Star Sports channel is very boring.

It sucks. And I've had enuff of it for years.
The programming is sooo poor. Commentators are stupid.
Are they really think we wanna hear those stupid commentators discussing over and over? During rainfalls, Supersport would show matches recorded earlier. StarSport? Vijay Singh discussing over and over. Fuck.
Hopefully they'll lost their right this soon. Hate them so much.
