    Does anybody know the reason why AUS is left out of Semis and Finals live streaming at Youtube? I have noticed it since earlier this year for every open tournament, live streaming is available up till Quarter Finals (Fridays), for Semis and Finals held on Sat and Sun, there are no streaming available.

    Anyone know why is that? Broadcasting rights? Or simply they do not like AUS to enjoy the final thrills?

    Yep, to broadcast rights. It should be on BWF YouTube site now though...

    Which broadcast rights though in AUS? Which other channel broadcasts the live event?

    I have no idea either. I have looked all the channels in Australia and none is broadcasting it as far as I know.
    Though when I checked on the rights, it was owned by SBS.

    Thanks to that bull****, I need to pay for VPN so I can watch on the go. I don't get why AU is blocked when literally no channel airs it.

    Install turbo VPN and use Singapore proxy. It works here in India

    It is such an irony, when I still lived in Singapore they blocked a lot of live streaming but not for Australia. Now that I have moved to Australia, they are now blocking Australia but no longer Singapore.

    What do you have against me, BWF?:mad::mad:

    They also "forget" to un-geoblock. For example, Singapore Open finals are still not available...
