    Here in Indonesia is very hard to get badminton live.
    Even I already submit Indovision, they didn't show much Badminton live.

    While astro which show more, has desided to closed their business.

    In Indonesia, I hope First Media will broadcast HKG Open like last week for China Open.

    First Media broadcasted China Open for SF & F. First time I see this cable TV broadcast the tournament from 20-15 minutes before and after the match when the stadium empty.

    Unluckily no free TV Station in here broadcast any badminton this time :mad:

    Yup, we'll see this weekend whether First Media will air HKG Open or not...As we know INA National TV Station only will broadcast badminton programme LIVE when INA is the host such as TUC 2008 and INA Open SS edition.

    That was I experienced.
    I wanted to submit first media, and it upset me when they said, sorry your block wasn't covered yet.
    You know what, just in front of my house they have the first media installed, they said, different block already :eek::eek:

    Perhaps Sopcast would be able to help? I haven't actually tried it myself but I might look into it..

    Hi Arslan,

    Yes, by using Sopcast, you can watch the match LIVE. Sopcast will be showing Semifinals and Finals, this Saturday and Sunday respectively. If you wanna watch, you gotta download Sopcast (free software). install it , then run it.. you just click on the right channel --- GuangDong Sport ( or GD-Sport or sth similar ), of course at the right time.

    Hope it helps. I've started using it recently and am happy with it.

    cheers

    on Sports Channel 150
    This channel usually showed sport picture only when no programs

    I used ASTRO before RIP, just 2 weeks ago subscribed first media, surprised they broadcasted live China Open on Saturday & Sunday feeded by CCTV-5.
    I heard they brodcasted Japan Open this year too when ASTRO (Nusantara)didn't broadcasted it.
