View Full Version : I Miss Pool On TV

Might we have a dedicated thread or forum here to get news for pool events on TV? Between the US and Canadian providers, we surely see some from time to time, no? it seems like it is looking for a lost earring in the yard these days to ever see pool on TV. sid

It seems to go in spurts. This winter there were some great pool matches televised here, including womens and mens singles and doubles... now there is zip.

For matches on-line theres always the Apa site but the camera work is so maddening I can't stand to watch it more than one or two games. They seem to think we want to see the object ball go in from every angle possible at the sacrifice of where the cue ball is going. Why can't they place the camera over the table and leave it there the way british snooker does?

Most on-line sites feature old matches, its hard to get a recent broadcast, plus of course we're watching on our monitors and not a big hi-res screen.

Yeah, other than the few WPBA tourneys, there really isn't much Pool on TV.

Best bet would be to hook your TV up to the computer and watch Pool on Youtube.
