I copied this from the top of the TSN page link in the press release: "TSN DIRECT: STREAM EVERY MATCH OF THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN!"

https://www.tsn.ca/daily-australian-open-coverage-on-tsn-1.424045
I don't know where you found that headline because it isn't on the press release posted earlier in this thread. Regardless, it also isn't remotely accurate. If you look at the link you provided, they only have four online streams while there are dozens of courts in action at any one time.

That headline was at the top of the TSN page. There seem to be a lot of matches listed.

I notice TSN is not putting matches across all five channels this year. Sportscentre reruns apparently draw better ratings the 6th time on air?

TSN also have 4 bonus channels they activate during special events to carry additional games/matches, although I don't know if all TV providers carry them. You should be able to sign in online if you don't get them through your TV provider.

Sure but it's a bit of a pain(the App for my SmartTv anyway), particularly when in years past, all the matches were on the satellite. I would be curious as to why they feel from midnight to noon the next day they should have either SC or SC with Jay basically the entire time rather than more live sports.

Genuine question, does it cost more to air more of the tennis? I mean once the rights fees are paid, they don't pay more do they? Can all the SCs just be fed into a computer and that is that? Whereas a technician would need to be working?

I get all 9 TSN feeds on Bell MTS Fibe TV, so they're already paying for the linear TV rights. I spot-checked a few other providers and it looks like only Bell Fibe TV and Bell Satellite carry the 4 extra feeds.

I signed up for the Sprotsnet- SN package with Rogers 2 days go. It was worth the 20$ just to watch the Nick Kyrgios game.
Too bad it was just a replay but definitely better than not seeing it.
Great game. It was an ESPN feed, how does that work?

Does anyone know when the next tennis coverage on TSN will be and what it will be.
I only signed up for TSN for Wimbledon but if there will be coverage of lesser tournaments from the WTA tour I would consider keeping it until after the US open.
I've been going around in circles trying to find information.

I can't speak to the app, perhaps there are other tournaments, but TSN tends to air 500 and up. 250s, not so much.

If you want basically all the tennis you can handle, tennis.tv is a good option. $150 for a year and you get everything outside of the majors. At least that is what it was when I had it a few years ago. The WTA had broken away and attempted their own digital strategy. I don't believe it was successful, and they have come back to the "table" so to speak. If tennis is your primary interest, it could be worth it. Matches are all on demand as well, so you don't have to worry about pvr or TSN not showing the match you want to see.

Thanks for your reply, I don't know what you mean by air 500 and up, 250's not so much.

I looked at tennis tv but it only covers the mens tour at the moment I am finding women's tennis much more interesting.
If it covered both WTA and APT, I would definitely be interested in subscribing to it although not sure how I could access it with my tv.

ATP tour has 3 levels of tournaments. Masters 1000, 500 and 250. Basically refers to the points to the winner of the event.

It used to have WTA as well, but they went on their own.

As for access you would either airplay it, or use a streamer, unless your smarttv can add the app.
