CBS Blackout

How many of you are affected? I thought ESPN has the whole tournament covered but just found out that the finals are on CBS. Not cool.

Are you a Time Warner customer (victim)? You have no other options? They've been the worst for a long, long time.

I believe this is CBS' last yr with the rights and ESPN has it all starting next year.

The word is because of the NFL - TW and CBS will come to an agreement - no way CBS can go into the regular season without all the major markets.

Sorry for you that you don't get the CBS channels, but I've got to say I think I'm preferring their coverage. When ESPN was broadcasting on two channels it seemed like it was often the exact same matches. So far today as I switch back and forth they almost always have a different match on. I like that.

I don't see CBS listing tennis on the guide at all for tonight's matches. Does that mean they've bought the rights but aren't going to actually play the content. God help them if that's the case!

CBS always had the finals. Why did you think ESPN had it this year?

but the USO website has live streaming even though its crappy.

Go to tennis channel or USOpen website.
Don't have TC. Refuse to pay for it when Comcast bundles it with 5 other golf channels I won't watch so they can jack up the price. F dat!

Looks like I'll be streaming it from the USO app to my ATV if they will do it that way when Fed plays tonight. In the meantime I'm off to CBS's sites for some hate mail and abusive comments on their site feeds. Mother fuggers!!!!

We have thunder storm and tornado watches taking up the bottom half of the screen so the scores aren't visible.

TWC subsciber here.

They are giving us Tennis Channel for free for the 2 weeks of the US Open. I've also been watching on CBSSNHD, (CBS Sports Network HD?) this weekend.

No CBS channel, TWC has replaced it with Starz kids channel...and they threw in a free On Demand channel too.

I have TWC-NYC. Seems like US Open.org is the only choice albeit with the crappy stream but I will check out European streaming sites to see who has better feed. I can't wait for the class action to start for TWC.

try www.myiplayer.eu and turn your virus protection up to HIGH! Might have to turn off ad blockers, popup blockers for it to load properly.

In the Los Angeles area, TWC has put Tennis Channel on Channel 9 for the duration of the open.
 
I have TWC, and I've been switching between tennis channel (which I wonder since it's free if I get a credit this month since I usually pay) and online streams.

I read you can ask TWC to give you a converter box or something for free so that you can watch CBS with that instead.

My friend told me that they put up CBS Sports for TWC subscribers (but it only shows non-main even). Does Tennis Channel cover the finals?
 
I think they will show the finals a few hrs or the next day...but thats just my guess....they have been doing that so far for the matches CBS shows.

Did anyone really think this wasn't going to get solved before the start of the NFL season?
