The BNP Paribas Open, the largest ATP World Tour and WTA combined two-week event in the world to be held March 3-16, 2014 at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, has renewed its television broadcast agreement with Tennis Channel, it was announced today by Steve Simon, tournament director.
Tennis Channel will feature 97 hours of live coverage and 145 hours of encore coverage of the 2014 tournament. Live coverage on Tennis Channel will begin on Thursday, March 6 and wrap up with the men’s doubles final on Saturday, March 15. In addition, the popular “Tennis Channel Live Pre-Game Show” will air 30 minutes prior to live tennis coverage from Thursday, March 6 through Thursday, March 13.
“In recent years Tennis Channel has steadily expanded our BNP Paribas Open coverage, both in terms of overall match hours and live conversation from our news desk on the tournament grounds,” said David Egdes, senior vice president, tennis industry relations, Tennis Channel. “Indian Wells is truly one of the jewels of the tennis season and the tournament has taken a leading role in on-site innovation for players, fans and media. We’re thrilled to maintain our partnership with this extraordinary event.”
“We are pleased to renew our agreement with Tennis Channel, and excited to bring more than 240 hours of high-quality coverage from the BNP Paribas Open to fans across the country,” said Simon. “The Tennis Channel Live Pre-Game Show and set on site were great additions last year, and we look forward to continuing this engaging platform for fans at the tournament and beyond.”
