Thumbs up Wimbledon Live pay service

Just wanted to say we ponied up for the Wimbledon live pay service this year:

http://wimbledon.mediazone.com/other/index.html

and we've found it pretty sweet so far. This is the first time I've gotten one of the pay livestream services and I ain't complaining thus far. Nice picture and good court selection. Sometimes the popular matches seem to load slowly or you need to reload a few times to get it started but still, pretty great if you are hooked on Wimbledon. Thumbs up from us so far (though it's only the first day).

Thumbs down Does Not Support Mac OS systems!

Doesn't work for Mac users. MediaZone gets a demerit and more hate mail from me.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

$24.99 is the price.


That sucks about Mac, how can they just ignore that whole side of the market?

Re: Wimbledon Live pay service

24$, with how low the dollar is in comparison to the Shekel, is a great bargine

I love it, I can peek from work, the quality and operation is easier than ATP TV, though I do think the picture was crispier last year.

If you are in the US, you can watch for free on ESPN360 which has a really good feed as long as you don't have Comcast.

Haha hell no, it's not any kind of advertising. I meant me and my girlfriend, both of us addicted to watching tennis. I just wanted to let people know that this service is pretty good. We always watched on TV or livestreams but this was the first time we tried the official pay service and we think it's worth it so far.

Re: Wimbledon Live pay service

Heh, you said it habibko, it was painful to give up that cash, wouldn't normally do it but this time couldn't resist. Anyway for most of the big games there will be free livestreams that will be the same or better quality probably.

Plus I might watch the final on an NBC livestream for the Johnny Mac commentary.

Just FYI to y'all, I'm in Europe now so can't get ESPN360 (well I could try with pr0xies but who knows) and can't watch on network TV. Only on Sky/Eurosport here.
