Default TennisTV.com

Is anyone a member to this new service where you can watch live matches? I signed up but was wondering if they are covering all of the tourneys, excluding the slams of course. Also can you replay a match if it ran live at 3:00 am in you time zone?

Arrow Got it.............

We use the service here to show matches on our store monitors. We have been using the service for a couple of years when they used to be MastersTV only showing the Master events then. Now they have expanded to all of the ATP events and some WTA events from what we understand.

The service is pretty good but the only issue that we noticed is that you have to have a really good access speed like Cable or FiOS to get good streaming. A computer with good video card and loads of memory also helps. If not, you will get a lot of freeze frames and interuptions.

The price has also gone up to $129 from $79 but they are showing more tennis. Hope this helps.

Cheers, TennezSport

Hi TennezSport

I hadn't though about speed issues and freezing.Hows the video quality?


Would you say it was worth the price? I still thinking of signing up.

Cheers

Hey Luminous,

The video quality is very good as long as you have the access speed. Looks like broadcast quality. If it's worth the price is really what its worth to you. There are cheaper alternatives like channelsurfing.net but the quality does suffer there a little there sometimes.

Cheers, TennezSport

Yes the TennisTV is well worth the 85 bucks a year. Like Tennezsport was saying you need at least 1 Mbps download speed to have a seamless feed. Not 1 commercial, you can pipe this into your tv if you have svideo or hdmi on your pc. Two of the best commentators Robbie Koenig and Jason Goodall usually driving. More complete coverage than any tennis channel, espn, or fsn. I can recommend.

hi,

What connection are you guys on to get tennistv.com in good quality?

Maybe im just picky, but I feel like the quality is horrible! They use Flash video now, and it looks TERRIBLE when I fullscreen it. Last year, atpmastersseries.tv used WMV to stream, and it looked decent.

Now with flash the video is trash. I dont know why they have 3 streams; the 450K stream looks like trash, and the 800 and 1MB streams look identical.

And I dont know why they call it a 1MB stream, it uses around 100KB/s, 10x less than they claim which is very deceptive. Im very unhappy with this service.

Arrow Connections

We are using business quality cable access to get our connections. We have a guaranteed CIR locked at 1MB, so we very rarely get any problems. Plus we are using the TOTL NVidia graphics cards with 8G of RAM on card and 4G in the computer. This setup gives us a very clear pic. The only problem we have is when it gets really windy we get signal drops that can be annoying.

This is why I stated that the quality realy depends on your access speed and computer capability and your video card is essential to get the best results. Hope this helps.

Cheers, TennezSport

wow those are some specs!

I dont think that is my problem though...Im on a ~2MB cable connection with a quad core and a 1GB Radeon 4850 and 4GB memory.

Ive even tried on my less powerful laptop (c2d/nvidia7900/2GB) on a >10MB connection, and it looks the same.

here is what I see when I full screen it...is this what you see and I am just being extremely picky?
