3 channels, SS4 has commentary the other two popups don't.

 

The way it is or cost saving?

Cost saving?

 

Sky don't have the satellite bandwidth to run the 16 extra live court feeds, you can watch them via Channel 9 website using vpn or whatever.

 

You can also watch them via skygo

 

I also have them on my m3u8 playlist...

Watch channel 9!

 

Alex Bolt (from the town I live nearest to). Finally an unpretentious aussie tennis player!

I'll look into Channel 9 but I dont want to watch that much. I just recall Skys past coverage had commentary on the main courts, and not on the lower courts. Now its just one match on a main court, and the two popups are no commentary and often one of these is the one on SS4

This will be up to the how the host broadcaster (HBS according to News Corp) provide the world feeds to Sky. The lack of commentary would be outside Sky's control.
