  1. Tks very much for the explanation. As a tennis fan, there are lots of things I don’t understand re. coverage, so it’s great to have someone with your knowledge of all the different aspects to ask. Really appreciate it.

  2. Steph, Do you know why TSN sometimes gives us “the stadium experience”, which means no commentary? During some of these “stadium experience” matches, they start off with no commentary for the first set, then the second set will have commentary, & if there’s a third set, no commentary again. If there is commentary for one set, wouldn’t there be commentary available for the other two sets as well? Is TSN just hitting the mute button for certain matches/sets, or do they acquire the coverage without commentary because it’s cheaper? Tks.

    • Depends on a lot of things. They can only broadcast what they’re given. It’s really about what the service provides. And they have a bunch of commentators in this little bunker back in London, where they do the commentary from remotely (except, at the bigger events, on the stadium court). Maybe some days they don’t have enough bodies so they switch them around. It’s definitely not a “cheaper” issue.
