    How's that for service? Half an hour after I email them, they bring back the red button table choice. See what happens when you speak up

      BBC's coverage of Ronnie O'Sullivan vs Marcus Campbell match

              Thankfully, Eurosport's coverage has been increasing all the time. I don't know about eurosport.ro, though. How is the nephew doing, btw?

                Barry Hearn just tweeted that the BBC will have full red button coverage of the rest of the tournament! Say what you like about him, but the guy gets results! lol.

                  Yeah that's a pretty good result. However it won't do me any good as I'm not in the UK...luckily there's still Eurosport!!!

                    Fair play to Barry, never been a fan of his but he has the game at his heart & has a lot of sway with the media.

                    Hopefully when the BBC say they will have full red button coverage it doesn't mean that they will stream the same match on interactive as they are showing on BBC 2...something they seem to be fond of doing!!

                      The Ebdon v Dott match was on the Red button earlier, but no sign of Allen v King, it used to be so simple a few years back, fire up the Red button and choose your table, but as usual someone has to tinker!

                        Hearn will not hesitate to do a deal with a different broadcasters if necessary once this current deal ends.

                          Can see it is on the red button but only showing one table so although they are claiming they will have full red button service for remainder of tournament I really can't see this being the case, I hope I'm wrong but what has happened to when we had a full snooker interactive page with both tables and archive footage etc.... I just can't seem to vent my frustration with the BBC enough!!

                            at least it is the non-TV table being shown on the Red Button

                            I remember when you would have both tables on the Red Button but it was a few years ago now when the BBC said to save costs they were reducing Red Button functions, and not just for snooker but across all activities
                            Up the TSF!

                                This was already all in the BBC schedule so he hasn't done anything.
