If i recall correctly, Starhub was still showing live telecast of almost if not all the BWF World Tour Tournament last year.
However, from this year onwards, can't seem to find the schedule of live bwf world tour tournaments in.the sports channel guide. From your webpage http://www.starhub.com/personal/for-your-home/tv/add-on-packs/add-on-channels/sports-group.html. badminton is not in the "Live sport coverage you can expect". Saw a reply on another post who also made similar enquiries, the reply listed a 7 tournaments' one of which is the Singapore Open . The remaining 6 are lower tier tournaments that is held in european countries.
Can i check if starhub is still taking live telecast of the top tier BWF badminton tournaments (namely World Tour) . As a badminton fan, i am extremely disappointed not being able toto cat the matches on TV. The main reason why i subscribe to starhub sports channel is solely because of the live bwf badminton tournament telecast. If there are any changes to the broadcasting arrangements, i think customer should be alerted so that we can make an informed decision with regard to our subscription.
Btw this week is the All England Badminton Tournament. It is one of the oldest and prestigious badminton tournament. Alot of top players will be competing in it. Din see the schedule on the sports channel listing.... Looks like i can't catch tv ...

Yes agree with SKetch and noticed this wasnt the case in previos year. Starhub seems to have less badminton coverage the past few months. Please advise whether any particular reason why starhub is covering less tournaments. This is pretty unfair for badminton fans in Singapore as Singtel cable TV also does not telecast this, if yes would definitely switch cable operator
