Star Sports (english commentary)

Star Sports is having more or less full live coverage (the 4th QF will be tape delayed).

Use P2P Streaming Tools such as TVUPlayer, SOPcast, PPmate etc. (see download link).

TV times (in CET)

Friday, 7:30 pm (QF #4 tape delayed), 9 pm (SF #1)
Saturday, 1 am (SF #2)
Sunday, 24 pm (Final)

Sport Live 5 (chinese commentary) Don't know the real name, but that's how it's called in PPmate.

Use PPmate. (see download link).

in 16:9!

They're broadcasting in 16:9, but using the wrong 4:3 aspect ratio. To have the 16:9 format without those "egg heads" you can open the stream with the VLC player with http://127.0.0.1:18988/ps/1/2/3.asf and change it to the original 16:9 signal. Of course PPMate must still be running in the background.

CCTV 5 (chinese commentary)

Use TVUPlayer, SOPcast, PPmate etc. (see download link).

CCTV 5 is probably also having some coverage, but it's currently unknown how much they'll show and if it'll be live or tape delayed only.

So you gotta check yourself.

The Tennis Channel (english commentary) Live coverage ended

Use the P2P Streaming Tool TVUPlayer or PPmate (see download link). The channel is called "Tennis (sports)".

TV Times (in US ET)

Saturday, March 24
10:56 a.m.-11:00 p.m. ET live

Funny that this tournament is sponsored by Sony Ericsson but there's no WTA coverage anywhere. I'm sure there will be in the USA once ESPN2 picks it up. But today you have Sharapova, both Williams sisters, Hingis and other top seeds playing and I don't think it's on TV anywhere. :o Thank god TTC is at least showing the men.

Yappa
03-24-2007, 06:19 PM
Yeah, that's probably true. If that was ATP, then I'd be disappointed. But since it's WTA, I don't care that much about it. Of course I'd watch possible Henin-Williams matches.

Of course I'd watch possible Henin-Williams matches.Yeah I don't much care about WTA either, but I'd still rather watch one of the Williams or Sharapova over Vince Spadea. I just find it strange that Sony Ericsson runs the womens tour and this tournament and yet there's more mens coverage on TV than womens. Why doesn't equal pay advocate Larry Scott do something about that?

Well, I'd be interested to watch it, but it really looks like there's no way to see it. Looks like Eurosport will show Hingis playing against some noname instead.

Someone on WTA World posted (http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=291619) that TTC announced on-air last night that they'll show women's matches after 9pm today, which would be Serena/Safarova.

Anyone else hear this?

If true, they must be switching to Eurosport coverage. Add to this that if true it's also kinda sucky that they wouldn't do it for Shriekapova/Venus.

Yappa
03-25-2007, 03:30 PM
Guests can't do anything with that link.

Well, of course it's possible that Eurosport will show more WTA than they originally planned, but it's probably more likely that the ES coverage doesn't have anything to do with it. TTC will probably just use the same satellite feed which Eurosport usually uses.

How does that help to keep the trolls away? They have to register anyways, if they want to post.

No news regarding that on WTAworld? Guess we'll have to wait then. As expected the Sharapova-Williams match seems to be a good one. They'll probably put highlights on the ATP Masters Stream site.

TTC hasn't been showing any live womens matches, so I hope when they come on tonight they show Williams/Sharapova. Barry McKay and someone else are doing the commentary so it's not a Eurosport feed.

Yappa
03-25-2007, 11:31 PM
I was talking about the broadcast signal. Eurosport is only showing one match per day anyways and that was the Hingis one. So of course TTC has to use their own commentators.

Why? Not allowed to install TVUPlayer at the place where you are right now?
If you just want to watch the stream with the Windows Media Player, then you can try using this link http://127.0.0.1:8901
Though this only works with TVUPlayer running in the background.

Nice, they're broadcasting in 16:9 but changed it manually to 4:3. To have the 16:9 format without those "egg heads" you can open the stream with the VLC player with http://127.0.0.1:18988/ps/1/2/3.asf and change it to the original 16:9 signal. Of course PPMate must still be running in the background.

Also, the link does not work for me, not sure why. I tried it with PPmate running.

Yappa
03-30-2007, 04:57 PM
16:9 is basically the Widescreen format you have on your Movie DVDs and it's more and more also used for TV (Sports) broadcasts. Ok, with some countries like France being the exception. In other words: in a few years it'll probably be the standard format for most broadcasts in the bigger countries.

More info here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspect_ratio_(image)

Are you sure you actually used the VLC Player (google) to open that link?

MaryWalsh
03-30-2007, 07:12 PM
^^^ thanks for the info. I only tried the link you posted, but my format has always been okay, I think it is going directly into WMP if that makes any difference.

But now I seem to have a new problem. :rolleyes: There is a new PPmate download today, which I installed. Now it seems my livestreaming is less sharp on several channels I tried. Anyone else having this problem?

Yappa
03-30-2007, 07:43 PM
Of course it does make a difference to use the Sport Live 5 channel on PPmate without VLC Player.
You just probably don't notice that there is a problem. Don't you see that the scoreboard at the lower left isn't completely to the left like it should be if you had a normal 4:3 screen? The aspect ratio is off when you compare it to a normal 4:3 signal. Good for you, that it doesn't bother you, of course.

MaryWalsh
03-30-2007, 08:16 PM
^^^I'll pay more attention next time :)

Meanwhile, I uninstalled the latest PPmate and reinstalled the former version and it was no better so I went back to the latest. I also tried TVU player. Seems a little bit sharper but I prefer the bigger screen of PPmate. So I am back where I started :)

Really, the quality is generally the same, so it's hard to say which of those programs is better. So just get both if possible.

Germany is the biggest market with no Masters Series TV coverage, yeah. Certain channels are interested, but they're not willing to pay the price.

Star Sports is having more or less full live coverage (the 4th QF will be tape delayed).

Use P2P Streaming Tools such as TVUPlayer, SOPcast, PPmate etc. (see download link)..
