This extra content is your chance to get to know your way around TTE.TV before the matches begin at 7pm on each day as England take on Serbia on Thursday and France on Friday, at the K2 venue in Crawley. Please take the time to register in advance to avoid any last-minute panic at match-time!
On top of this, you will be able to watch the matches again in full immediately after they have finished and at any time after that. Highlights packages will be available a few days after the matches.
Keely Armitt, Head of Engagement at Table Tennis England, said: “This is an exciting step forward in broadcasting and promoting English table tennis to a wider fanbase, showcasing our leading events and players to existing and new supporters.
“TTE.TV will become the go-to channel for English table tennis and we will be working with our partners at 1080 Media and with other stakeholders such as the Senior British League clubs to continually improve production values of all of our live streamed events.”
Table Tennis England and 1080 Media have recently signed a three-year contract after a competitive tendering process. The two parties have previously worked together to broadcast England internationals, the Mark Bates Ltd National Championships and the 2018 ITTF Team World Cup in London.
Keely added: “1080 Media have built an excellent understanding of our sport and have delivered consistently strong productions of our events in recent years, so we’re delighted to further cement our relationship with them.”
Cliff Webb, Chairman of 1080 Media, said: “We’re delighted to have been selected by Table Tennis England to be their production partner in this new agreement, as after many years of working together with them, we have gained a huge amount of experience in covering the sport.
“Certainly one of the highlights was the incredible Team World Cup staged in London in 2018, when Table Tennis England hosted the top nations in the world. It was a challenge working as the host broadcaster for them and the ITTF, but a fabulous result, seen and enjoyed around the world.
“The TTE.TV initiative is just as exciting for us, as it is an opportunity to focus people in one platform to watch the best action from around the country, and we are excited to be working with Table Tennis England to help build and develop this in the coming years.”
