No online coverage of Wimbledon matches by Mediazone this year!!

What a terrible news! Mediazone provided the best coverage over the last few years for Wimbledon. I now have no way to watch Wimbledon live. It looks like ESPN360 took the license away this year.

I live in Canada. ESPN360 and Eurosports do not work for me. And I do not have cable TV. Is there any other paysite for live streaming of Wimbledon matches?

From the Wimbledon Live page of the Wimby site:

Quote:
Live online coverage of Wimbledon may be provided by NBC/ESPN in the US, CTV/TSN in Canada and ESS in all other countries listed above except for Germany and Spain.
Is that any use to you?

They just broadcast the shitty ESPN coverage on cable.

They did have 'online coverage' of AO; you could watch archived semifinals and finals on the TSN website (from the ESPN coverage, of course). Doing the same thing is probably all that statement on Wimbledon means, at best.

Thanks for your reply. But I don't think TSN/CTV provides live streaming over internet. I could not find any such option in their website.

Re: No online coverage of Wimbledon matches by Mediazone this year!!

I quickly panicked thinking that it meant that Wimbledon Live was no more.

Looks like I'm one of the lucky ones that will still get access to Wimbledon Live. But it looks like a couple of courts less than usual.

Yea i had used it the last 2 years. Was great being able to select the matches you want to watch and even interchange between them at the click of the mouse. Even better was that some courts had no commentators.

Will have to settle for foxsports coverage this year

NBC Sports Streams Wimbledon With Silverlight
Written by Ryan Lawler
Monday, June 15. 2009 at 02:00 PM EDT

When the 2009 Wimbledon tennis tournament begins next week, NBC Universal will stream matches live online using Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) Silverlight's Smooth Streaming technology.

Tennis fans in the U.S. will have access to live coverage online from NBCSports.com, including one high-definition (HD) stream and four other standard-definition streams of matches during the tournament.

The Wimbledon Live service will be powered by Microsoft Silverlight and its "Smooth Streaming" adaptive bit rate technology. Smooth Streaming allows publishers to encode various quality versions of a video file.

When the file is requested, the streaming server determines the highest-quality version to send based on an end user's broadband connection, and updates the bits that are sent as conditions change, ensuring the highest-quality bit rate that is available.

The Wimbledon coverage will be a bit of a testing ground for NBC, which has already committed to using Silverlight Smooth Streaming for its 2010 Olympics coverage at NBCOlympics.com. While Smooth Streaming has been available and in use for on-demand video for Canadian broadcaster CTV and Italian public broadcaster RAI, Wimbledon will be the first major live event in which the technology is used.

Also in on the Wimbledon live streaming project is iStreamPlanet Co. , which will handle content acquisition and encoding for the event. iStreamPlanet also built the video player and will provide management of live and on-demand video assets through its iStream Director product.

iStreamPlanet will use encoding equipment from Inlet Technologies Inc. for the event, and Akamai Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: AKAM) has been chosen to deliver the video streams through its content delivery network (CDN).

The thread title is misleading. Wimbledon Live is still going on but is restricted in a lot of countries - but you'll still be able to watch it in Australia. I hope they have on-demand matches, it doesn't say anything about it.

Quote:

Wimbledon fans will be able to watch live coverage from Centre Court, No.1 Court, No.2 Court and three other courts throughout the Wimbledon fortnight with Wimbledon Live.*

More details will be available soon.

*Please note Wimbledon Live will not be available in the following territories:

United States, Canada , Germany, Spain, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Chica, China (P.R.C), East Timor, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, New Caledonia, North Korea, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam.

Live online coverage of Wimbledon may be provided by NBC/ESPN in the US, CTV/TSN in Canada and ESS in all other countries listed above except for Germany and Spain.
