Tennis TV V Sky Sports

Based in Ireland and looking to get rid of Sky Sports (costing me a fortune and never use it much)

Anyone use Tennis TV? Thoughts?

What is coverage like compared to Sky? Any drawbacks?

Seems to cover pretty much all the Masters tournaments, etc.

Cheers

I signed up for the monthly pay as you go online service a few weeks ago and it seems fine.

I've not seen how they cover a Masters yet, but there is multi-court / match coverage of the 500s so I assume they will do the same for a Masters.

Often doubles fixtures and some of the 250 matches are not shown (which does not bother me).

I have never had Sky Sports to be able to compare coverage.

Good commentators/pundits on it??

Some of them sound familiar from other channels' coverage (though no idea who they are sorry), Dubai is a good example of this and is as good as any other coverage. Just looked it up the team for Dubai is: Annabel Croft, Chris Bradnam & David Mercer.

But, there is some coverage where I do wonder where they found the commentator(s), Delray Beach was a good example.

Perhaps the pay check is related to the number of ATP points on offer.

Unsurprisingly some of the 'outside court' matches have little commentary.
 
If you watch tennis often TennisTV is great. Just pay for the year up front and don't look back.

The apps for all devices work great. The live players make it easy to pause, go back, switch matches. Replays posted immediately and remain in system forever now. An archive of classic matches.

The only issue would ever be geoblocked tournaments that are located in your country but with a VPN it is easy to get around.

For real, though, some of the commentators are whacked. Was watching a match on there in Houston last year, and the commentators mustn’t have known they were live yet, talking about sweaty moose balls.

Agree with all of this.
