    1xbet.com works for me. Suboptimal quality and sometimes soundless though... I miss that comfy, goofy british voice already :(

    Hi guys :)
    Live coverage really a desaster compared to ordinary SS tournaments...
    Can we at least find the replay somewhere? Nothing at bwf channel so far.

    You won't find anything on BWF channel for a few years, because IOC owns the rights.

    But the official Olympics YouTube channel announced that they will upload the matches after the games are finished. Better than nothing, I guess.

    I am watching from paid tv broadcast.
    We have 11 channels including 3 for badminton but somehow yesterday's match between Saina and the Brazilian girl wasn't broadcast.

    -You don't even need the proxy.- Just need to delete the cookies and reload the page :) You can see all three court in HD in live and replay

    PS: If you're outside of the U.S. you probably need the proxy indeed.

    Anyways I was really pleasantly surprised that all three courts were broadcasted live by NBC with high quality and multiple angle and slow motion. They have come a long way from London 2012 where the sound was atrocious

    I find even with a proxy it won't work for me. Maybe my proxy sucks but it works for french and British sites.

    Which browser/plugins are you using? deleting the cookies and reloading doesn't work for me on Chrome with AdBlockPlus. After 30mins it just keeps asking to Sign-in.

    It also doesn't work in Incognito mode: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/S1Ki5Yn7rzw

    When it says to sign-in after 30 min, I just delete history, reload the page and I have another 30 min. I just repeat the process. Quite annoying but better than nothing ;)

    is it ok to upload videos here? Since it's plagued by country restrictions and other issues?

    *Edit* nevermind, I saw there was another forum section for it.

    Thank you

    That sounds like heaven to me. Even if I delete history and cookies, it still asks for sign-in everytime!
