About 18 months ago The Women’s Sports Network started publishing basic information on the scheduling of Women’s Sport on TV – you asked to be kept updated, but last summer we launched ACTIVEMapX – but our technology and admin resources couldn’t support both services. As a small, unfunded, not-for profit organisation we have to work really hard to support a number of free services for WomenSport & SportsWomen – with just a small group of volunteers.
We promised we would be back . . . and we are. On Monday we launch a completely new approach to women’s sport on screen
TVi – integrates a mix of TV programme listings on scheduled (linear) channels such as BBC, SKY & TraceSPORT . . . plus LIVEStream events direct from event organisers around the world, PLUS some interstitial programming with on-demand services – all listed under ‘TVTimes’ on the new website . This weekend we’ll be covering three international hockey matches from NZ – culminating with the Black Sticks v the Hockeyroos . . . . and the Women’s Junior Surfing Champs in Ecuador. Plus the London Marathon and a re-run of SKY’s Sportswomen.
The new website is here www.wsnet.co.uk – there are still a few small glitches which we are ironing out. If you ‘follow’ our new twitter channel @WSN-TVi – we’ll ‘tweet’ you an hour before all TVi programmes – if it’s a LIVEStream event you can even watch it on your home or tablet!
You’ll see we are launching some exciting additions such as #ShowUP, SportsREPORT & WomenSorts News – and more to come – particularly in the lead up to #GLASGOW2014!
Sports Liberated – To celebrate the launch of our new website – Sports Liberated – the UK’s monthly sports magazine is offering its APRIL edition with a 50% WSNet discount – great value at £2.50 – a barging at £1.25!

Please do let me know your thoughts – observations, comments, criticisms – we are determined to make sport more available to women and girls.
Best wishes – Jo
