    I emailed the people behind the Swiss Open website regarding my trouble viewing the streaming after paying for it, and they kindly told me that they have been recording the matches and will send me a copy of the match of my choice. My problem is that I haven't heard much about any of the matches so I don't know what to pick. Could anybody suggest what match I should request? I would prefer a mens singles match but if there were any fantastic mens doubles or mixed matches then I wouldn't say no to those either. Anyway suggestions would be appreciated...

    How is that insane? My email has 1GB storage so it can take the file easily, I transfer it to my computer and delete the email, where's the problem?

    i have an idea. everybody who paid for the streaming will ask for a different free game, and then when we put them all together, we will have all the games!

    what i'm refering to is that you paid for a service as advirtised and it's not delivered "live streaming".

    I don't dispute that you can watch it later or <cough> share it with others but getting a 1gb email after the fact doesn't seem right to me.

    well, this is very new for them so bugs are expected.
    however, the replacement is not too bad.
    if u feel not equivalent, u do have the right to decline their replacment offer and to ask for a refund.

    look at this way, if live streaming become popular, this will put sparkles in the eyes of tv network executives and want a piece of the action.

    I would venture the best match SHOULD be the MS finals between Gade and Hafiz. In fact if you do have a copy of the match, I love to have a copy of it. YOu can maybe, ftp for members to download?:D
