    Often when you download videos from this forum, the matches are guided by English speakers. Most oftenly Gillian Clark and/or Darren Hall. Now here is my question:

    Which television channel produces live badminton matches with the English commentaries?

    I know you can watch badminton on CCTV-5 or AstroMedia, but I am looking for English commentaries. Thank you.

    the ASTRO Supersport Malaysia and TransCorp aren't boardcast with English commentaries. So mainly my question is who does Gillian Clark work for or who does she do commentaries for?

    In Singapore, our broadcasts are mainly in English although occasionally we do have some in Madarin, even by the famous Zhao Jianhua when he was residing here! :)

    Aerotus100JP oftenly records the matches for BadmintonCentral and he's for Singapore. All the matches are in their own native language.
