    Malaysia has good WC coverage, as long as you subscribe to our Pay TV (Astro Sports Package) ....... everything for a price.

    But nothing beats being there live at the Arena.

    In Denmark you will be able to watch 53 hours of Badminton on TV2 Sporten! That's not fair!

    Same case to badminton fans in INA, Vision1 Sports (channel 300) will broadcast LIVE WC matches from day-1 (08th August) until finale. This exclusive LIVE program only for MNC group (Indovision, Top TV, OkeVision) pay-tv subscriber, complete schedule : http://www.indovision.tv/schedule

    But heard one of local free-to-air tv (MNCTV) will telecast WC too...

    In Australia, the World Championships will not be shown on our TV at all. :(:(:(

    My internet connection is slow, therefore Live Streaming won't help much. :crying::crying::crying:

    As in the US, Canadians will be locked onto whatever livestream links available. I can't remember whether BWF will be streaming from the QF for this event. I hope it's earlier otherwise we'll be scouring the internet for other sources

    I'm actually surprised that there is zero coverage scheduled in Korea this year. 2 years ago, we had 40min of the MD final, 3h late, but this year we've had a bit of Koreans-only coverage of the Sudirman Cup and of the All England and Indonesia Open, too. MBC apparently couldn't spare the broadcast hours after midnight even.

    My Internet connection is super-fast, but not to Malaysia, for some reason, so the Indonesia Open was a bust. I hope that somehow the WC stream can come from some other server this time.

    Yes, that's what I mean. The Indonesia Open was unwatchable in Korea on the BWF's Youtube channel, though. At least 3 buffering interruptions per rally. I just hope it's smoother for me this week.

    Oops. Correction. MBC has 1h of coverage scheduled. MD R32 at 1AM Wednesday. Perhaps they are playing it by ear and picking and choosing once they find out if Korean players (or only Lee Yong Dae?) will be on the TV court. Definitely meant for fans of Korea, not fans of badminton.
