Default 2015 European Open coverage thread/split from Tournament thread

What type of video coverage are we looking at for this tourney?

SpinTV's there. Supposedly AK Disc Golf? ... maybe? ... and a Finnish live broadcast of some of the final holes of the final round?


Any others that I'm missing? lcgm8 gonna make an apperance?

No, I believe he refused to pay for media rights.

If anyone has any reliable information about whether this will actually be broadcast for anyone NOT overseas to view. I would appreciate it. I followed the link (http://areena.yle.fi/1-2737768) and then translated it. It says, "The program is not viewable abroad". So will we, or will we NOT be able to watch?

Because I MAY just have to use my VPN to mask where my computer thinks I am coming from to view that.

If the Areena link says it's not viewable abroad, it is a mistake by YLE.

I would think discussing/promoting Illegal activity would be wrong for these forums and disc golf in general.

I had no problems accessing Areena last year after European Masters (from California, after I returned, for clarity).

The broadcast schedule has been linked (thanks!) - follow that for official info, and obviously the "6:10PM" should be "AM" for PST. Be sure to check out The Insider Show!

Final Round Coverage with Commentary on SpinTV is pending. I am optimistic, but no promises yet.

Really hope you guys manage to get the final round coverage; y'all do a really good job with it, and it would suck to not have a final round. I get that the main focus of SpinTV isn't to provide tourney footage, but it would still be disappointing to have a YouTube channel that puts out great final round videos be at the EO and not get a final round video. Highlights just aren't the same as watching a full round.

Yeah but we're talking about the live thing, which is supposed to be available worldwide for the first time. All disc golf coverages by YLE have been available worldwide post-tournament.

I watched the YLE coverage live in South Carolina the past two years with no issues.
