WE MAY NOT BE FLYING TO LONDON, BUT WE CAN STILL SEE WHAT'S GOING ON


Wimbledon will be televised from Monday, June 21, through Sunday, July 4.

NBC will broadcast the women’s final on Saturday, July 3, and the men’s final on Sunday, July 4. ESPN2 will televise the rest of the matches live, while Tennis Channel will handle the repeats and highlights from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., on most nights. Typically, the highlight shows are repeats of most of the day’s matches. You can buy a pass to watch matches on http://www.tennistv.com/. But the best deal is  http://www.espn3.com/ for free live streaming video. That’s the way to go if you can’t watch Wimbledon on TV. Or if you want to watch one match on TV and check in on a different match on your computer, you can always watch live scoring on the Wimbledon website, http://aeltc2010.wimbledon.org/en_GB/about/tvschedule/index.html. An advantage is that you can do this at work, or at a wireless enabled airport--or from anywhere. A desperate alternative is to record matches and watch them when you can. You can see the television schedule here:
