hi countyrman RaDicrarlgirl :D

i purchased cable tv before, but i cut them when knowing that they have no more ESPN and starsports which means no tennis but sadly cable tv still keeps FO which is my favourite :mad:

yeah, i am worried that NOW has cheated us :mad:

mimi, StarSports won't show USOpen this time. But in HK, your cable tv sports channel will show it, the same channel as which showed FO :)

But I still don't know which channel for me or even none :sad: I'd much preper StarSports to show it coz they have the full and best coverage compared to my damn poor and disgusting local sports coverage :mad:

Mimi
08-01-2005, 05:37 AM
hey yanchr :wavey:

i did not have this cable tv sports channel, it belonged to another cable co (the one i paid for before i changed to NOW cable tv which said they show AO, wimby and us open :mad: :mad:

Hi Dude :wavey:

You are wrong. I'm also from india.
Ten Sports got the rights for the US open. :mad:
That means ESPN-Star Sports will not be covering this yr US open :sad:
I'm bit worried about Ten Sports. Their coverage sucked during the FO :(

Mimi
08-01-2005, 06:55 AM
thanks people :wavey:

confirmed: no us open in starsports, it gonna be shown by the old cable tv, what bad lucks of me coz last year, when i was with old cable tv, they did not show us open (coz the starsports channel was bought by NOW TV), so this year i changed to NOW TV wanting to watch us open, but they have fooled me, they changed back to old cable tv :mad: :mad:

can someone explain me, is is the fault of Starsport :wavey: , it paid too low that the us open tennis authority sells the broascasting to the other company :confused:

It may be due to the timing of the US open match which doesnt suit Asia. Star Sports might have not got sponsors for the US open due to the time(its not prime time in Asia). Also, i feel that, Ten Sports might have paid so much money to get the exclusive rights of the US open. I think Sania mirza's success made Ten Sports to buy the US open rights. :cool:

Mimi
08-01-2005, 07:11 AM
thanks kosi :D

then you are still more lucky than me, coz you can watch in free chanel :wavey:

guess starssports did not pay enough monies to broadcast us opens :mad:

then on second thoughts: how come the old cable tv has enough monies/sponsor to broascast this us open :confused:

and does this mean we will never see us open from this startsport :confused: :mad: , if so, may be i need to shift from NOW TV to old cable tv which is moer expensiev again :mad:

Its not a free channel. But as of now, i'm getting it in my cable. Dont know when they are going to cut the Ten Sports. If there is cricket during the US oepn, then it wont be a problem. Because, there are so many cricket fans who will make the cable operator to buy the Ten Sports at any cost. ;)

oh.. good :wavey:

The best thing for you is buy both the cables(old and NOW) if it is not costly. Thats what i did last yr. In one cable, there was no sports and i bought another one which had Start sports. So, i had both cables. But the worst thing happened was during the US open both cables didnt get the Star Sports signal. Now i have the DTH tv to over come all cable problem. So far, i didnt miss any sports action this yr. :)

There is no reason for star sports to cut AO and Wimb. Becuase, those timings are suits Asian time.

French : Usually, in FO, no big players were playing. I mean no popular player, IMO (players like sampras). Thats why Star Sports were not interested in FO. i guess ;)

Not sure about the way they will cover it coz the FO signals were sent by the French and we don't know what signals will the American send this time.

It's another sports channel of the satellite TV here, sometime they do broadcast some tennis, mostly WTA. But they broadcast RG this year while I was worrying about Starsports has no broadcast of RG, and it did save me. I don't think Hongkong cable TV will have this channel, unless someone also install the satellite TV.

Broadcasting here is terrible :o yes, some sports channels will broadcast 4 GS, but they don't broadcast the full-day matches. I mean if the matches are in the late mid-night sleeping time, they won't broadcast anything :( And if you don't install satellite TV which is paid, then you can't watch Sportsplus, that means you can only watch very few matches (only 1-2 i think, coz most USO matches are in the sleeping time to us) of US Open per day by the local Sports channel. Besides, the commentators are terrible :haha: So we always envy Hongkong have 卫视体育, 许乃人 is :yeah:

First of all Sampras is retired and you probably didnt see him playing in 13 or so FO since he had early loses in the tournament. Buang KA!

What i meant was, all those big players didnt do well in FO. That may be the reason why star sports was not interested.

hi novarnoa :D

oh i forgot the name of that woman commentator :confused: , but she commented a lot duiring the clay court season, i really cannot stand this 通過發球, what is 通過 :confused:


"罗迪特" & “休一克 :mad: :p :eek: , then better to turn off the sound, just watch the tennis :devil: ,

i remember they showed FO and us open from semi to final a few years ago, but now, only showed wimby :mad:

thanks, i feel better now :wavey:

:haha: @ "他將通過自已發球局取勝"..... who is this woman? a Hongkong local tennis commentator? does she watch Rafa's matches when comentating? :rolls:
I still think Starsports commentators are much much better than our local ones. Don't want to scare you away, but some one even said "罗迪特" & “休一克” :rolleyes: really sucks....


this is really poor......:eek: cheer up, mimi :hug:

通过发球 means "by serving or relying on serving", eg. 通过发球赢得比赛 means “win the match by serving or relying on serving”, seems like this.

this 通過發球 is not phrasing well :wavey: , she should said "他跟著保到自已發球局就可勝出比賽" :devil:

Got the sense!!! :devil: I had thought what she mean is Rafa has very good serving, and can even win the match by his serving :devil: :devil:, that's why i was doubting if she watched the match or not when doing the commentating job. Did she say it in Cantonese or in Mandarin?

yes...Jiat, I feel sad that more and more tennis fans here began to be against Sania just because this Sania mania :sad:. I know Starsports wants to popularize Asian players, but sometimes it did too excessive. They really don't need to emphasize her so much, coz many people do like Sania by watching her tennis.

:haha: I think she meant Nadal can Serve it out / Serve for the match. Poor poor...But I guess you can't blame her, coz you have to use 16 Chinese characters to explain 3 English words, SERVE IT OUT :lol: ;) Is she 徐美燕?

So true! I actually love this girl. She is very pretty. She plays beautiful tennis. But 物极必反. Just like Paradorn at a moment.

HaHa,you're talking about Xu Meiyan?I think she is pretty lovely.Star Sports' tennis commentators are much better than those of CCTV-5.

Mimi

she say in Cantonese :wavey:

no she did not mean rafa has very good serving, she just wanted to say "Rafa will be serving for the match" but always 通過 :confused:

hi yanchr :D

hey she can simply said in English, 拿度現在 serving for the match, many chiense understand enlgish :p

oh yes, seems her name is 徐美燕, i think she does not know too much about tennis skills, just like mimi, coz she always say the same thing for a good shot "好美" ;) but whether the shot is a forehand, top spin, low spin, volley, she did not mention :devil:

Hi mimi :hug:

It's said the she was a badminton player before so is not very professional about tennis. She is actually much better than the commentators with CCTV. You can imagine what we have to suffer when watching tennis on CCTV :rolleyes: But ya, she should at least more professional than you and me to be a commentator ;) :devil:

Mimi
08-04-2005, 05:21 AM
oh my god, she is better than those commentators with CCTV :eek: , then poor yanchr :wavey:

i guess starsports is a miser and offers small sums of monies, so no good commentators, may be they gonna ask an ex-swimmer to comment on tennis later :p :devil:
