Thumbs down DISGRACE !!! No Wimbledon final for German viewers !!!

Scandalous behaviour by the ARD.

Instead of showing the final, they are showing the 1st day of the Tour de France, which is also on Eurosport. :retard:

Even worse is that they are sharing the rights with DSF, and they would definitely show it if they were allowed to. But no, ARD is sitting on the rights and all tennis fans are screwed.

I think this is the first time in many many years that we are not getting to see the final LIVE. There's not even a chance to see the complete match anywhere.

Please, join me and complain, the e-mail is sport@ard.de, or use this link: http://www.sportschau.de/email/

Eurosport actually did that during the latter stages of Roland Garros and it REALLY annoyed me!

@PaulHopkins: Yes I know, but Eurosport showed the woman final after three games played, but ARD want to broadcast at 6pm, three (!) hours after the match begun.

Re: DISGRACE !!! No Wimbledon final for German viewers !!!

My e-mail:

Ich möchte mich über Ihre skandalöse Wimbledon-Berichterstattung beschweren.
Anstatt das wichtigste Match des Turniers, das Herren-Finale, zu übertragen (das immerhin die beiden Top-Gesetzten bestreiten), zeigen Sie die Tour de France, die sich in ihrer 1. Etappe befindet und zudem GLEICHZEITIG von Eurosport übertragen wird.
Dies ist eine Unverschämtheit, denn ich kann nicht begreifen, warum Sie sich die Rechte für Wimbledon sichern, wenn Sie offensichtlich kein Interesse daran haben, den Tennisinteressierten eine angemessene Übetragung zu bieten.
Und daß Sie es nicht fertigbringen, dem DSF die Übertragung des Finals zu überlassen, was dieses sicher ohne zu zögern übernehmen würde, ist der Gipfel an Mißachtung Ihrer zahlenden Zuschauer.

Da Sie es offensichtlich leid sind, sich mit Tennis abzugeben, bitte ich Sie hiermit inständig, sich von allen Übertragungsrechten zu trennen und sie den Sendern zu überlassen, die echtes Interesse an dieser Sportart zeigen.

Re: DISGRACE !!! No Wimbledon final for German viewers !!!

Wrote the same stuff...diese beschissene Zuschauerredaktion arbeitet anscheinend gar nicht, andauernd besetzt, ich glaube die haben einfach den Hörer daneben gelegt und niemand arbeitet, obwohl die "täglich" da sind...klar!

Ich kann´s nicht glauben, dass ich Roddick´s erstes Wimbledon Finale verpasse. Scheiß ARD.

Re: DISGRACE !!! No Wimbledon final for German viewers !!!

Holy cow. That's soooo bad of ARD then.
Here in the Netherlands I already find it stupid that in general the newspapers and sports channels spend more time on Tour de France than on tennis. But broadcasting a 2nd day tour de france and not broadcasting a Wimbledon FINAL. That's almost the most pathetic thing I've ever heard of.

But can't you view BBC in Germany?

Re: DISGRACE !!! No Wimbledon final for German viewers !!!

ARD really sucked on that one

Fortunately i still had the BBC and swiss TV, so it wasn't a problem for me but i sometimes changed channel to check and was really estonished to not see the game there. Poor german tennis lovers :/

Good luck to: King Roger, Marat, Andre, Guga, Tim

Queen Justine, Daniela, Elena, Jelena, Tatiana, Babsi, Manu and Timea!
