    Sorry another thread but again I think this one is important

    If anyone knows where/when the games are being televised please post here

    In the UK Tommorow BBCi are televising full coverage of

    Wales v Singapore 3.30pm
    UK v Malaysia 7pm

    I managed to catch UK v Canada today and coverage is good

    If you have NTL this is channel 999 , don't know about satellite

    I agree and what's worse is

    a)they said it would be televised
    b)they have a whole channel playing a highlight report that repeats every 5 minutes

    :(

    I believe there will be no telecast. That is what I think. Gymnastics and cycling more important than Badminton in England. No wonder the sport can never improve in England, this is why.

    I'm pretty unhappy. I've been looking forward to this all day. Amazing how they have such little respect for badminton fans as to tell us it is to be televised then to not televise it or tell us what is happening. It really is poor.

    The guy who commentates on badminton is commentating on the gymnastics, so I think thats probably what's caused this

    Agreed. This is indeed poor. I think KL98 was a much better commonwealth games. They delivered what they promised, all the time, everytime.

    As far as I know, Malaysia is leading England 2-1 now.
    Go to this wwebsite, it updates after every match is won...I think.

    http://www.manchester2002.co.uk/res...X&content=BD_TM_X_rs_2&type=event&title=Phase^Status


    I think the format of play is like this:
    Mens singles -> Ladies Singles -> Mens Doubles -> Ladies Doubles -> Mix.

    If it is not like this, then I think Malaysia has got a chance because this means one of the ladies events or mix have created an upset. But I think my predited format is correct.

    It is 2-2 now, I think England is going to take it as their mix is world class. Pity for Malaysia.

    Medal rounds

    Looks like it's Singapore, New Zealand and possibly England & Australia through to the medal rounds.

    England/Malaysia are tied as is Australia/Scotland.

    India lost a close one to New Zealand by losing all their doubles.
