French Open on Tennis Channel+

Image-1

I succumbed and bought a one-year subscription under protest (I very much dislike the absence of a one-month subscription option) and now I'm glad I did.

The simulcast of 12 ongoing matches allowing you to watch any you want is why I signed up, but lagniappe is all over the place: 

• the camera work is sensational, better by far than any I've ever seen for tennis coverage by U.S. networks: up close super-slo-mo is fantastic

• the audio on the outer courts is superb and what with the small crowds allows you to clearly hear the players' comments after shots, often entertaining (and sometimes obscene, what with the absence of studio delay)

• the announcers are usually (for the less featured matches on outer courts) alone at the mike, making for a more relaxed and listenable commentary

• at least half those announcers are from England or Australia; they tend to be less voluble than their American counterparts, always a good thing, besides which I like the accents
