The Tennis Channel & Dish Network

When I saw the thread about The Tennis Channel coming to Dish Network, I was really excited...but when we got online with the "live chat" to check for it, the people at Dish said they knew nothing about it....then we called them and they said they knew nothing either?? I was hoping to see some tennis that normally isn't on!!!

at Dish Network...

Maybe I just need to be more patient or something!!

I called them too, and the guy was a real idiot. He said to just keep checking their website. I had to tell him about the transponder and the satellite number, channel number, etc. He said he had no information about anything.

I emailed directv again, and get the same old response! "We forwarded you request to the drectv manager, etc etc etc"

I want the TENNIS CHANNEL!

Riding the 3AM RollerCoaster


My name is Danny
And it's uncanny
How when I sing about my Hingis
I start to groove like Mingus

If she could only go
To my singles rodeo
She'd find me hitting forehands to and fro
She'd say "Radek, man, you've got to go!"

I'm the only boy in Texas
Who pulls up in a Lexus
And when I make a play
They call me Breakaway.

Bag Check is basically the meaning.. They show a player and the player shows what he/she have inside their bags.

The only times when it helps to have TTC are around tournament times because they actually show live tournaments and if your a fan of ATP tennis. They show Masters Series events from round 1 and it's usually all day live coverage from start to finish then it repeats at night "AWESOME COVERAGE". When a tournament isn't on the channel it really stinks. I would hope they showed real classic matches but nope, all the old matches they show are yawners.

I have TTC and I just start watching it again to see HC. Not sure how much it cost but I'm paying $3.99 a month for it but that also includes my Fox College Sports channels which are far more important to me. GO HUSKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

Me 2...I imagine these emails go right into the trash can of their email inbox As if the addition of the tennis channel would take away from their 300 paid programming channels & 200 bad music channels with no video

Updated info from The Tennis Channel :

We are in active negotiations with Dish Network and are hopeful that we will be launching in the next 60 days but can’t confirm timing until we get closer. Thanks for hanging in there and please keep an eye on the TTC website for launch announcements!
