Live TV Telecast - Thailand and Indonesia Open
This is what I gathered from Starhub TV (in Singapore)
Live Telecast for Thai Open:
On 9th & 10th June (SF & Final)
Live Telecast for Indo Open
On 14th (Thurs) to 17th (Sun) June

Those in Singapore, if you are subscribe to Starhub 'Racket' channel, do help to call (regularly) Starhub at 1633 to 'pressurize' them for more Live Badminton telecast.

the live telecast is on Ch202 and not Ch211 "Racket Channel".

Why did Starhub telecast the Thai Open finals on Channel 202 and not on the usual Channel 211?
The programming department should have the common sense and anticipated that there could be an overrun of the live telecast of the boxing match between Pacquiao and Bradley.
No thanks to Starhub, badminton fans missed the first part of the XD finals. This is not the first time this has happened.

I called Starhub to enquire about the Thai & Indo 2 weeks ago, and they only got back to me during the Thai Open week. Most likely Starhub was scrumbling to get us the Live telecast BECAUSE someone asked.
I frankly think that with more people in Singapore calling Starhub, they will have more regularly Badm Live Telecast planning, and on CH211.

Thanks for your info. FYI the Thai Open was telecast live last year.
I think its great when there is competition from Singtel and was pleasantly surprised that Starhub started to telecast the GP tournaments last year.
Did anyone realise that the entire matches are not shown when Starhub telecast repeats of the tournaments? For example viewers might only get to see the first and third games of a XD match of 3 games.

I just called Starhub.
The Indo Open Live will start at 130pm (SG time) on CH211 today (14th June).
