    Default "Badminton Unlimited" is a Good Show.

    Not sure how many people are aware of the weekly news show "Badminton Unlimited" on BWF's YouTube channel. I think it is an excellent show that all badminton fans would like to watch.

    BWF should promote the show better on their website and during tournament broadcasts.

    A new show usually shows up every Friday. Although last Friday's show hasn't shown up yet. Nevertheless, there are already 14 of them and they do pack a lot of interesting information.

    I would prefer subtitles to voicing over. Most of their interviewees are non-English speakers, and I don't think they are doing a particularly great job in translation. Better to let at least part of the viewers hear what they really want to say.

    This is a great effort in part of BWF/ING. It is a lot of work to produce a weekly video magazine like this, esp when each one is almost 25 mins long. There need to be a lot of research work done, as well as a huge production team travelling to various location in the world to interview the players and produce interesting material.

    To be honest though, I didn't start watching it until last night when I had a long overnight drive home from out of town. Badminton Unlimited was the perfect companion to the drive because it was sufficient to just listen to the audio with all the interviews and narration. It was interesting to learn about LXR and Marc and Arvin, etc while I drive. And it kept me awake until 3.30am.

    I do believe that in general, the issue is that each of the episodes are too long. It is ok if they are showing it on TV, but with short youtube attention span that most of the online population has, breaking down the video into <10min segment would keep viewers interested as well as getting more opportunity to generate more revenue for BWF/ING.

    They upload it to Youtube almost a week later .. I watched the one that they uploaded today last Tuesday on TV. Here in India, the new episode broadcasts every Tuesday. In India, they broadcast it in English as well as in the regional language, Hindi.

    You can see in many episodes that few professional players use different rackets in their training sessions than in real matches.

    Tago used Z-Force, JOJ used N90 and Mohammad Ahsan used Z-Speed.

    I thought this got canceled. But they just released 5 episodes to make up for the lost time.

    Agreed on the voice-overs. I wonder if they find it's easier to adapt to broadcasting not in English. After all, if you ran the show in another language, you would likely replace the narration anyway. Still, I think subtitles would be easier to translate as well and I'd definitely like to hear the players speak.

    I prefer to listening players voice... because I am non-English speaker

    So It is tantalizing to hear English voice instead of my native language!!!

    I want to hear 'own words' players from my countries.... and I can do it for players voice

    I know they do I great job, but they sometimes are a random with their weekly uploads. For example today they released episode : 66,67,68,69 and 70 all in one day!!!
