UK - BBC Interactive?

Is it only running for the "night" sessions, or have they introduced it during the day session too?

Re: UK - BBC Interactive?

Thats bad, as much as I like euros commentary; bbc has a nice quality 16:9 broadcast, the best of any tennis coverage

Cheers


As for anyone else, do they find it annoying you can't automatically set interactive to come on? You have to manually turn it on so it's no good if you want to set your vcr. It means you have to record on eurosport

Totally agree with you Adam That's why I always look forward to the US Open as much and every year pray Sky will take the Australian Open. I guess though due to the timings they never will due to a lack of viewers in Britain.

Re: UK - BBC Interactive?

I think the channels for BBCi (on Freeview anyway) are 301 and 302. Messing about this evening I got snooker on 301 and cricket on 302.

It might be worth trying setting the video to record one of these channels and seeing what happens.

Perhaps somebody with cable versions of interactive could investigate and see if they can come up with channel numbers.

Re: UK - BBC Interactive?

The problem with sky, is that the sky boxes don't allow you to view the interactive feeds. Every other box allows you

And that's good news about Murray but what about everyone else we want to see?

Yeah I guess

Hopefully we get Roddick instead of Mauresmo, but I won't hold my breath

Re: UK - BBC Interactive?

Guys, does anyone know the schedule of what we are likely to see tonight? I am able to stay up for the two weeks, but I am guessing with no interactive you can tell what is going to be shown? and whether it's worth staying up for

Reallly? I have a Sky box but also a Freeview one - will it work on there?

They better not show Mauresmo over Roddick or I'll be

Re: UK - BBC Interactive?

Hi

I just checked the schedule and I notice Tsonga is playing Roddick. So I hope so too, very much I enjoy watching Tsonga (even though he is going to get a lesson today). PLEASE Show this match Eurosport Not boring WTA Matches (which you have a reputation for showing).

Re: UK - BBC Interactive?

WTA Buttfuckers strike again This is going to be an awful match. They need to get their priorities sorted, and start showing the men more. Especially considering no interactive.

Another night of tennis ruined, because of bad choices by the coverage.

Re: UK - BBC Interactive?

On the Eurosport livestream, you can get the Roddick match. Ok it's not free, but at less than £4 for the entire tournament - with the facility to see matches you have missed - it has to be a pretty good deal.
