    You can watch online also, I think someone posted this link before, but I can't find it. Anyway it's free from Tue - Sun.
    I remember you could watch for free last year as well. Good website.

    ah, the swiss are the best.
    that's the way to promote badminton!
    i'm sure it doesn't cost the badminton associations too much to fund these livestreams.

    have you opened the link? it says free from tuesday until sunday, which means from the first qualifying day until the final.
    as for one court or more, i don't remember it very well, i think they showed 2 courts last year.

    Now I understand z3048018's confusion, hmm, sounds like the English version of the website is directly translated from German or French.

    Here's the German Version:

    LIVE-STREAMING.


    GRATIS VON DIENSTAG BIS SONNTAG.

    Internet. Livestreaming.

    Allen Badmintonfans, die nicht nach Basel kommen können, bieten wir über www.swissopen.com eine attraktive Möglichkeit, von Dienstag bis Freitag Livebilder (ohne Kommentar/Grafik) aller vier Courts zu sehen. Zusätzlich wird auf Zattoo ein SwissOpen-Channel eingerichtet, der - ebenfalls live - die besten Spiele zeigt. Unter www.zattoo.com kann man sich dafür kostenlos anmelden und den Player gratis herunterladen.

    Auch am Samstag und Sonntag kommen Fans, die nicht vor Ort sind, Dank unserer Partnerschaft mit Zattoo voll auf ihre Kosten. Alle Zattoo-Nutzer können auf Ihrem PC die Final-Spiele vom WILSON BADMINTON SWISS OPEN auf einem der Kanäle, die das Event übertragen, überall live und kommentiert mitverfolgen.


    ---
    I think it roughly says that fans can watch free badminton from the www.swissopen.com website for free from Tuesday until Friday, shown on all four courts but without commentary and graphics (?)

    And on Saturday until Sunday, fans must download the program at www.zattoo.com to watch Swiss open live and with commentary for free.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, haven't used my German for 4 years already.

    "The service is currently restricted to Switzerland, Denmark, Spain, Germany, Norway, United Kingdom, Belgium and France, but is expected to expand to other European countries, (with Austria and Poland being at the top of that list[6]) then to Canada and the U.S."

    Haha, it was and is free to begin with so there really is no legit reason te be :mad:;). I can't even watch it myself!
    I'm sure you can pay to watch it on wob tv or something or some p2p tv somewhere. And indeed you can still watch for free like always from the swissopen website untill QF. Even the entry to the Swiss Open is free untill the QF, like always :cool:. What other SS event can claim that?
