    Yes, I am literally watching it now. I think they haven't sold the right to anybody yet.

    BARCELONA SPAIN MASTERS 2020: Uh oh, all live streamed videos have now been blocked and today’s finals were blocked after the Mxd doubles, which strangely, was being shown?!? But now you cannot see that or any of the earlier QF, SF or other matches streamed earlier in the week. WTF IS GOJNG ON BWF???

    Yes I was just settling down to watch the rest and they turned the feed off! But even the previous matches have been blocked now too. I thought ah well can’t watch the live finals but at least can go back and watch the quarters and semis..... but nope, bwf have blocked them now as well.

    Just use a VPN.

    Yes, that now looks to be the only viable option.
    Both BWF.tv and BadmintonEurope.tv are no longer providing coverage so VPN it shall be.

    This is the easiest way to watch the live streaming - my friends using the following method and works fine (when they are streaming).

    1) Download OPERA browser WITH VPN from https://www.opera.com/features/free-vpn for PC (most of the Opera info on this page as well), or, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.opera.browser for Andriod smartphone
    2) Install it
    3) On PC, startup OPERA and install Adobe Flashplayer from https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
    *** Important as need correct version of Flashplayer

    4) Then ENJOY!!!


    There are other methods to use VPN but the above is by far the easiest method I have came across to intro newbies to the world of VPN.

    Please do ensure your Windows Security is running fine eg green status (aka firewall)

    I've downloaded Opera and enbled VPN but not Flashplayer yet. Flashplayer is notoriously flawed and is getting binned soon anyway isn't it?

    If there is a youtube live, just use VPN for YouTube

    yes if you are familiar with VPN. As per what I included towards the end of that post ...

    "There are other methods to use VPN but the above is by far the easiest method I have came across to intro newbies to the world of VPN.

    This is a seemless exercise - no need select correct country to be able to watch, some must setup account, startup VPN, switch off vpn. etc

    With Opera, all you do is startup the browser & point to the bwfworldtv - good for the average user.

    All England is the one event I don't need streaming for. It's on BBC TV (court 1) and I'm going to Birmongham tomorrow to watch the rest in the flesh. Woohoo :)
