    Is anybody of you watching a live stream right now? If yes, which one? I'm from Germany and the is literally no coverage of badminton besides matches with german participants.

    For a high quality reliable livestream I can recommend using CyberGhost and pay 5 euro for a month membership. Then let it connect via british proxy and then you can watch the BBC live stream covering court 2 with Gillian Clark commentating.

    You can also rewind the video and rewatch the games starting from the beginning of the day.

    I think that there are no cameras on court 3 unfortunately. Haven´t seen any streams for that court yet at least.

    I've searched the entire Internet, without any luck. There have to be cameras at that court though, the ZDF having broadcast a match on that court...

    Luckily, all the other 'Dutch' matches are played on court 1 & 2.

    Yes there were cameras there for that match. Not anymore. Might have been the chinese TV broadcasters who have now moved the cameras to another court.

    Thank you for your hint. I'm using unlocator.com noch instead of CyberGhost and it's working just fine.

    Maybe there's an online stream which you can access with proxy/VPN from the US.

    Actually: I already get past that. The problem is, to watch, it is required to have cable account in the US.. I am watching streams from Canada now.. they only have court 1
