Any live online Roland Garros Coverage?

There's probably a thread on this, but I'm not too keen on digging through all of this.

Is there a subscription service this year to watch live men's matches at Roland Garros? Of course, in Canada I don't have access to Eurosport.

Any ideas appreciated.

Re: Any live online Roland Garros Coverage?

I haven't managed to get ESPN 360 to work with a p roxy. I can get to the Media Player but then all the videos won't load/are blank. Is anyone else having the same problem?

Re: Any live online Roland Garros Coverage?

You will get coverage of RG on TSN if you live in Canada - it starts with a preview on Sunday and then most of the coverage starts at 9:00 am. I am not sure which part you live in but I watch the matches also on www.bet365.com - great online coverage.

Re: Any live online Roland Garros Coverage?

TSN is crap of course. bet365 - does this have coverage of different courts? I'm looking for something as comprehensive as that. ESPN360 just plain doesn't work. I haven't tried pr*xies for the other two US services. Can anyone confirm that this is doable?

No subscription for RG on eurosport.com like last year?

Can North American users watch the matches on TennisChannel.com? I looked on the website but can't find any answers to this.

Have no idea, I was surprised I when found that they will be streaming but for who and from where and how yet to be seen.

Has anyone tried watch-sports-live.com? There's an ad for this, but I'm not sure if this is good or a scam or what.

Have you recently tried this yourself, Heretic? This trick doesn't work anymore. I manage to get to the video player but none of the videos load up, it stays black. It looks like they've added another security feature to the videos themselves which is incredibly annoying.

If anyone figures out how to get it working, please help me.

Re: Live streams, TV's and satellite feeds for Roland Garros

For US viewers:



ESPN360 is broadcasting live matches from PC, SL and Court 1 starting tomorrow. Dish Network is offereing additional court coverage on channels 473-477. DirecTV is doing the same on channels 701-706.
