Sony did great with Euro, they did great with FIFA, they did great with Commonwealth Games but Olympics man they are confused what to air like anything? They should completely shut all WWE and others and should air Tokyo Olympics all day on Ten 1 , Ten 2 and Indian Events irrespective of any thing on Ten 3. Six should showcase Classical events like Tennis Basketball.
How bout no? Keep WWE and UFC for live telecast at morning and repeat at night so that slot is free from repeats of these programs during noon until evening. Save highlights from morning. And events featuring Indian Athletes and air those as highlights in the meantime while bringing a live feed during noon on Sony Ten 1. Use rest of the 2 channels to air various events. Give Sony Ten 2 to completely airing international events. Dedicated Sony Six, Sony Ten 3 and Sony Ten 4 for Indian athlete's event while airing other events when Indian athelete is not playing. Also put out scroll across channel on what's airing where to avoid confusion.

Dude, till date only 2 channels exception of Rio Olympics where 4 channels were available aired Olympics in India. They did justice to events by showing events for a longer period. Didn't aired ads inbetween or switched feed at crucial points.
In 2016, Star Sports was having a luxury of showing longer events as they planned perfectly and they even was able to promote the events they aren't able to cover on DD National as the event was available across platforms.. This time as well Sony should have utilised DD Sports by allowing them to broadcast across platforms and routing some events there as well... Sony is even paying less to IOC compared to Star... They would have easily gotten ROI from that.. If they are able to show Anurag Thakur on the opening ceremony, why not utilise the public broadcaster for the same..

Ps. I'm saying this because, Olympics rights aren't as costly as the other rights and they can have multiple events which they aren't broadcasting routed to DD National or DD Sports..

Don't worry... He is facing #2 seed. The match for sure will be played in the main courts... So probably at least will be able to see... Let's see how pathetic they can be..

Today was much improvement over last 2 days. Only complaint of most viewers are about too much airtime given to studio show when live events are happening and there is the complaint of pre-show of being in just English as most viewers speaks Hindi.
