    Are the previous ESPN+ subscribers going to re-up their subscription for the US Open? Just curious. I've got no plans to sign up for it right now, but will look for the patterns in what matches or courts they leave out of the regular extra court coverage on ESPN3 and DirecTV.

    I will have the ESPN+ active during the US Open. They are supposed to have coverage of every court, so I would imagine quite a few of them will only be through the + subscription.

    Things may change, but going off the first day, the courts they are providing to DirecTV, and to WatchESPN, have been superior to what was given at Wimbledon. They are not leaving off a major show court this time. DirecTV has access to more courts than ESPN3 watchers though, so definitely a bit less than what was previously given for them, so they could work on that as this is still supposed to be a good service on it's own without needing to add on ESPN+, but this is still better.

    What's the deal with the 11 am - Noon coverage window? Why isn't it on either regular ESPN or Tennis Channel? Do we know?

    I get that Ashe doesn't start until Noon, but there's play on the rest of the courts, so I don't get it. Like yesterday they could've started with Azarenka or Wawrinka and today with Kvitova if they had started at 11. I'm surprised Tennis Channel isn't allowed to start the day's coverage if ESPN wasn't interested. I get the channels at 11 through DirecTV and I know people can cast/Roku/Apple TV/Fire TV/Chromecast to get Watch ESPN onto their TVs, but that's truly an extra step that not everyone can do easily.

    I feel like this is the only GS that this happens at too, which is doubly odd to me.

    The streams on the outer courts don't work half the time for me using ESPN's APP.

    If you didn't know, we're in the midst of College Football Kickoff Weekend on ESPN. Coverage will switch to ESPN2 at 9pm. So just be aware that basically the second match can be found there, but be aware it could happen earlier so if you're confused on why you're suddenly watching football, you know where to look.

    The only, and I do mean the very only, reason it isn't already switched over from ESPN at this hour is because it's Serena vs. Venus. Nothing else from the US Open outside of Serena breaking the record would warrant ESPN disrupting this College Football Kickoff.

    The doubles finals being on is very pleasing...

    I just cancelled our subscription today. Overall, not that many extra matches were provided by ESPN+ - I ended up watching one or two matches over the last 12 days on ESPN+. We don't plan on renewing the subscription. (Of course, things may change next year, as they almost always do! We'll see.)
