Re: Austrialian Open TV to stream Live Grand Slam tennis for $15!?

For all non-American and Australian (possibly Russian too) residing tennis fans, I advise you to go to Hills and watch 6 court coverage for free.

The website looks awesome...

and it appears that they will infact be streaming every match online for $15(pre tournement pass)...along with posting the regular daily roundups, interviews, etc for free.


Thoughts?

Isn't this the one that's available everywhere except the UK and US? If it is, it's no good for me and I will be taking jayjay's suggestion.

Smart move.

Many many of these countries are those with government controlled/state run television, which will never shell out for the AO.
Of course in a handful of these, the government also monitors the internet, but seeing as tennis is hardly political propaganda I can't imagine they'd block it.

No wonder it's $15 -- cheap by Aus standards, bu = 5 days's worth of pay in some of these place. :sad:

I continue to place my faith in the Eurosport website, even though it is still ominously quiet on the subject.

I love that they charge US dollars for a service THAT IS NOT AVAILABLE IN THE US!

I have ESPN360.com, and nearly wall to wall coverage on TV. I'm not sweating it.

For UK users BBCi is covering it every weekday morning, live coverage and "best match of the day". The first weekend there is limited coverage on BBC2 on Sunday, both singles finals (not live) the last weekend.

I'm sweating it - no ESPN360 (love my Cox Cable internet provider) or live stream available - longing for the good old days at Wimbledon and live stream/on demand matches IN the US.

HOw are you getting wall to wall coverage on tv in the US? all I see that I can count on is the wonderful coverage from ESPN2 which means if an American is not playing they might decide to show bowling instead. And The Tennis Channel looks like it will show an hour or two some nights. If you have found something bettter I'd love to know about it.

None of the above applies to where I live, since we get ESPN2 AND ESPN International on our cable service.... and no....we do get paid considerably more than USD $15.00 for 5 days pay.. heh, a fast food snack box is equiv of $9.00 - $11 US... and they are VERY well patronised... lol

.. but we are included in places that can get AO/TV

Yes, the "many many" would discount wherever you live. I don't think St. Kitts either has money issues. ;)
