    Hi guys!

    I work for a website called www.gbsport.tv. We stream live events of all different sports from around the world and this weekend we are covering the BWF Hong Kong Open from 9am GMT. So tune in!

    Cheers,

    Luke

    Outside the UK most of us will have the YouTube live streaming service by the BWF. Of course in Denmark I imagine you are "stuck" with TV2Sport ...

    demlidor can't get on tournament software all day today, you? Was the first session today 1xWD-1xMS-1xWS-1xWD in that order 3 and 1/2 hours worth(thats what i got)? Just wondering seems like to few a matches and doubleing up on bad games(WD) for the telivised part seems strange.

    No problems here (perhaps http://www.toernooi.nl/sport/matches.aspx?id=6ADDD331-4C98-4B84-A2ED-3F0B93881018). That was the first session yeah, only 4 because of the w.o. for Cai-Fu in the all-CHN MD matchup :rolleyes:.
    I guess no or too few takers for putting badminton on their tv schedule during prime time to make it worth the cost. Will agree the scheduling could be better for tv but probably not for the audience on location with separate tickets for each session I believe.

    There "never" is an international feed for the first three days of an SS tournament so how could they? SS is last three days (QF) and SS Premier is last four days (R16) [​IMG] with regards to mandatory broadcast.

    I meant first 3 days of main event, disregarding qualifying. They only cover 2 of the 5 days of main draw

    And the BWF channel only covered 3 of the 5 so how was GBSport supposed to cover 5 out of 5 again? [​IMG][​IMG]
