I wonder what their figures are like for the pay-per-view online streams? I would assume not that great considering how easily one can find an illegal stream. I still don't get the reasoning behind the new for charge format. I suppose they couldn't get appropriate advertising to cover the streams due to the time difference, but when the tournament is usually such a cash cow, they could surely have absorbed the shortfall.

As for the TV numbers, I'm surprised they're even that good. Other than a handful of people, I don't really know anyone who's been waking up early, or paying much attention at all for that matter.
