Here's another post by Mark:
In a series of posts, I have discussed strategies for UK aliens who are missing British TV and radio, How to cope without British TV and Radio; Part 2; Part 3; football supplement; cricket supplement; cricket supplement update (see also the related post World Cup Coverage in the USA). The excitement of the World Cup, and England's recent exit (the ultimate antidote, England fans, if you haven't already listened to it, is found in Baddiel and Skinner, Podcast 11: The Britishers are Coming Home), have delayed the necessary supplement on Wimbledon coverage (but see, of course, Viola's post on Wimbledon).
Inevitably, we want to supplement the American coverage with some British perspectives from the good old Beeb, and with Wimbledon it turns out that this is particularly straightforward. All of the FiveLive Wimbledon coverage is available to international users on-line, though if you try to listen to the commentary while watching NBC or ESPN, the radio commentary is about 5 seconds behind the pictures (the opposite of the cricket problem, where the Willow TV pictures are behind the TMS coverage). This came in handy when the American TV coverage were not showing Andy Murray. FiveLive also has a Live Webcast, which is fun but I have not yet found a way to get the picture in broadband quality. On the other hand, the BBC Sports Player (follow that link to get the Broadband version) has an excellent news, clips and highlights service -- strongly recommended.
