Tennis blackout


sir – It is wonderful that Channel 4 allowed the nation to watch one of the most important tennis matches of recent years (Letters, September 13). Spare a thought, however, for the many fans in North Yorkshire who were unable to do so, then had to listen to friends telling them what an incredible match it was.

We have been without terrestria­l TV transmissi­ons for five weeks – with no end in sight – because the Bilsdale transmitte­r caught fire. The deal that Channel 4 made with Amazon blacked out transmissi­on via the All 4 player (our only means of viewing) and there is no repeat or catch-up facility.

One hopes that Emma Raducanu wins more titles – but, please, not until “normal service” has been resumed. Ken Hunter
