WTH is wrong with Star Sports Asia?

At 1pm Shanghai time (Manila time also), they were showing a car race in Beijing and after that some more f***ing futbol?! I was so looking forward to Fed-Nalby match!

Re: WTH is wrong with Star Sports Asia?

Fed-Nalby will be shown later at 2am, and at 12noon tomorrow.

I dunno why they're not showing the round-robin matches live, but I know they'll be showing the semis and finals live.

Re: WTH is wrong with Star Sports Asia?

That's what I saw earlier as well so now I had to wake up at 2am just to watch a match that should be shown live since it's in the same time zone! I'm so damn mad! Do you know what time they'll show Roddick-Ljubo?

Thanx for the reply!

Re: WTH is wrong with Star Sports Asia?

according to my cable guide Roddick-Ljubo is going on at 4am and 2pm tomorrow. I have a gut feeling they're going to start earlier because Fed-Nalby ended half an hour before the allocated time slot, and Roddick-Ljubo ended half an hour outside the timeslot.

I have no idea why would they repeat today's matches twice, thus taking over tomorrow's live matches' timeslots.

Star Sports sucks!

I can't watch the live matches because I need to get up at 5 am to prepare for my classes. There will be replay at 12nn but I'm sure they're going to cut some portions of it to fit into an exact one or two hours air-time.

Re: WTH is wrong with Star Sports Asia?

15 minutes to 1pm yesterday (Sunday, Manila time), the electricity went off. 15 past one, it came back on. I was sooo pissed thinking that I missed the first 15 minutes of the Federer/Nalbandian match only to find out that Star Sports Asia decided to be an ass and skip the LIVE broadcast of the TMC.

STAR SPORTS ASIA DOWNRIGHTSUCKS!






Any of you guys have an idea if they are showing a replay of the Blake/Nadal match tonight? Thanks!


Let's rearrange the letters:
DORMITORY - dirty room
THE EYES - they see
A DECIMAL POINT - im a dot in place
SNOOZE ALARMS - alas, no more Zs
ASTRONOMER - moon starer
MOTHER-IN-LAW - woman hitler
ELEVEN PLUS TWO - twelve plus one
ELECTION RESULTS - lies, let's recount

Re: WTH is wrong with Star Sports Asia?

it's called willing to pay for live .

Please see here if interested in downloading tennis matches.

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards. Do try and understand the difference (TARDS)! Don't get me started on Choke-ovic though. Him I do despise. And his TARDS are the lowest of the low .

Does it cost them more this year or something? We had live matches last year.

Tomorrow at 12 pm. astro.com.my has the schedule.

As long as you're in Asia nothing beats football, they don't care about other sports. :/

I think until halfway through the year, they used to broadcast tennis masters series live with replays the following day. I used to have faith in Star Sports knowing that whatever men's series events come up, I know I'll be able to watch it. I would read similar grievances by other people in other continents and am glad we have Star Sports here. Too bad, the network people suddenly turned retards...

I used to regularly check the sports sched in their website too, but for as long as i can remember they don't post it anymore at all.

Thanks silverarrows for the sched (can't watch it though )...I hope someone capped the match and will upload a torrent. Thanks in advance to that person

So much for improving visibility and access to the sport in the region - the big Sports broadcaster can't even be bothered to show the event live.

They were doing so up until Madrid, I think. Heck, they had replays of Cincy like woah.

It's football season. Euro qualifiers, the English Premier League, etc.

I loved StarSports' broadcasts though, they rarely went to commercial break and we get to see stuff that happens in between games.
