The wipe is great advertising for the LTA.

The Hawkeye and some of the stats graphics are in the BBC style on Amazon Prime Video suggesting there are bits of the package that can't be done in both (I've watched bits of both depending on who is commentating, and Amazon have a 20 minute highlights programme each night).
Watch it and find out.

I think Hawkeye still use the old style BBC branding.

Good they have been sticking with the tennis at night on the red button - though no doubt only because it's featured Andy Murray.

Yes, I think if it wasn't for Andy Murray the doubles wouldn't be televised, they aren't normally at ATP 500s - note the doubles in Halle, also a 500, isn't being shown by Prime Video tomorrow.

A page or so back I mused as to why I can't get live tennis via my streaming stick and the Prime App. It appears that despite it being only 3 years old, live Prime streams aren't compatible with that make of stick. A new one beckons.

However, been off work today and caught some of the European Games on BT Sport. What a strange multi sport event it is.
No pitch/arena/track side product event sponsor advertising (bar the event logo and Belarus itself) actual low attendance at the events - with the usual groups of school children, and the military in clear view to fill up the seats.

TV presentation is a curious beast as well.
Yes -multi camera angles, the ubiquitous event logo on the replay wipes, and a set of name, score and timing graphics that look like the IOC's for the Olympics if the development and design money for them ran out after four days.

Commentary is a puzzle as well. BT Sport are taking the English language world feed commentary - and supplementing it with their own 'continuity style' back at BT Sport HQ, but I'm not even sure that the world feed commentators are even at the stadia. Given how off mix the sound is, I'm wondering if they are all off-tubing everything back at the IBC
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.

It's a official European Olympic Committee event, so I guess in line with Olympic events it takes no in stadia sponsorship. Really though it is the That's TV of multi-sport events.

As for Prime - that's why I hate technology nowadays though it's fine on my 7 year old Smart TV.

Olympics News ....

The IOC has appointed a Milan / Cortina dual bid for the 2026 XXV Winter Olympic Games.





(Stockholm being the other final contender)

Incidentally, these games will be the subject of a new broadcast deal, the Eurosport one being for 2018, 2020, 2022 and 2024 only.

Hopefully they'll be back where they belong - I think the smaller sports especially who've really benefited from extended red button coverage over the last 4 games will be quite vocal about the profile they lose thanks to the reduced coverage on the BBC and other PSBs.

Switching from BBC One to BBC Two, with BBC Two joining potentially two points away from the end of the match, BBC One just managed to stick with it until the end, swiftly switching away - well co-ordinated but could not have been worse timing. With BBC One Scotland joining the start of the match late, I would argue they should have shown this final on BBC Two in its entirety.
