    Default Commonwealth Games on TV

    Sorry another thread but again I think this one is important

    If anyone knows where/when the games are being televised please post here

    In the UK Tommorow BBCi are televising full coverage of

    Wales v Singapore 3.30pm
    UK v Malaysia 7pm

    I managed to catch UK v Canada today and coverage is good

    If you have NTL this is channel 999 , don't know about satellite

    I agree and what's worse is

    a)they said it would be televised
    b)they have a whole channel playing a highlight report that repeats every 5 minutes

    I believe there will be no telecast. That is what I think. Gymnastics and cycling more important than Badminton in England. No wonder the sport can never improve in England, this is why.

    I'm pretty unhappy. I've been looking forward to this all day. Amazing how they have such little respect for badminton fans as to tell us it is to be televised then to not televise it or tell us what is happening. It really is poor.

    The guy who commentates on badminton is commentating on the gymnastics, so I think thats probably what's caused this

    Agreed. This is indeed poor. I think KL98 was a much better commonwealth games. They delivered what they promised, all the time, everytime.
