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!

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.

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! :mad: Do you know what time they'll show Roddick-Ljubo?

Thanx for the reply! :)

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.

:mad:

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!


:fiery::fiery::fiery:



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

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

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 :sad:)...I hope someone capped the match and will upload a torrent. Thanks in advance to that person :D

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.

Here in India, we are able to see all matches of the Masters Cup live. Its the same broadcaster, Star Sports. Guess its different for other Asian counries. They should be showing LIVE all across Asia. Thats their job.

It's actually sis, bro! ;)

Hay, yun nga, I have to wake up pa ng madaling araw just to watch a little tennis. Grrr, kainis yang star sports! Alam mo yon, sobrang konti na nga lang ng coverage ng tennis sa Asia at sa 'Pinas tapos madaling araw pa nila ipapalabas! Pero, bilib ako sayo bro, tinapos mo lahat ng replays.:cool: And super super thanx sa pagpost ng sched! :worship: :worship:

That was just it, I have to wake up in the middle of the night just to watch a little tennis. Grrr, I hate star sports! Tennis coverage is so small here in Asia, especially in the Philippines and what do they do?! They show replays and matches in the middle of the night. But I admire you bro, for watching all the replays. And super super thanks for posting the sched!

*Whew, that's almost a word-per-word translation! ;)

Hmm, according to your sched (w/c I printed already), the Live matches for tomorrow is at 730 & 900. Whose matches are those? Damn, I won't be able to watch Roddick at 12pm!

Lucky you! Maybe the live matches schedules there do not collide with the football sched..

Right now, Nalbandian/Ljubicic just started their 3rd set & Star Sports is broadcasting....football, what else? :ras:

Funny, I saw an ad of the Tennis Masters Cup Shanghai in Star Sports during the break and they didn't even have the nerve to check who the 8 qualified players are...Marcos Baghdatis?!? He's not in Shanghai! Puh-leeze Star Sports, if you can't even care to show it live, at least get the players list correct! :smash:
