Why the hell am I not watching tennis right now? ESPNs coverage just went out at 9AM Central time and NBC isn't showing anything. I'm sorry, but I believe this is the biggest day in the mens draw and there is live tennis going on now, and I am not seeing it.

I'm a tad ****ed.

I'm on the East Coast and ESPN coverage stopped at 10am and NBC began immediately after. I think NBC's coverage is 3 hours and when it's concluded, ESPN will pick right back up again. Full day of tennis viewership.

East Coast > Western coast?

Because it's 10 am in all time zones. Anyone who doesn't live in the eastern time zone has to wait until it's 10am in their zone. Get use to it, will be like this all week.

This is why Wimbledon Live is so great. Don't have to worry about TV executives' whims. :-)

I thought when you have interactive you choose the court and whichever channel it's on it's stays on that match.

Yeah I encourage all to get the Wimbledon LIVE access pass and watch anything you want online. You pick what you want to see, and the commentators are far less annoying. They need to do this at ALL 4 slams
