Tennis Channel Update

It has bought rights to 5 ATP Master Series event (3 clay, 2 carpet, all in Europe). According to a yahoo article, it will be part of "basic cable" and should be in 38% of households (that means we each have a 1/3 chance of having it and it won't cost anything extra).

The following is an image for the WTO Survivor Scavenger Hunt (omit it if you are not in that game ):

Unfortunately for worldwide tennis fans, the Tennis Channel will only be in the U.S. Lucky for us in the States though.

If it will be in 38% of the homes in the U.S. that's a great start. And I know I'll get it because Warner Cable was one of the first to sign up. I hope they will be in big cities like NY and LA because that would mean more people watching and the more people who watch, the more successful the channel will be and the faster it will get into more areas.

Croat, is there an exact date when the channel will get on line?

THEY BETTER HAVE IT IN NYC

I am a part of the Time Warner Cable system, and they better keep their promise. And I hope we don't have to pay extra or that it's a premium channel, otherwise I don't think I'll be able to get it.

It better be a part of the Basic Cable line up.

If it is only in the States I will FLIP. Typical stations, maybe it will be on digital cable though.

Does anyone know if it will be a part of Adelphia?

I would not care if I had to pay extra to have it. I am almost willing to switch to satellite if that is the only way to have it.

Adelphia is part of Comcast right?
if not, will comcast carry it?

miranda,
the article said it would start at the beginning of next year.

i hope it ends up being in just about every household (like the stupid golf channel) and that it buys the rights for all the tournies (including what the NBC, ESPN, etc. don't show from the slams).

ugh, why do they all suck????????

That one I am pretty sure will not carry it from what I heard.

i did some research, a adelphia is part of the National Cable Programing "something" and not a part of comcast. it look like comcast won't have the channel

for those of you outside the us, comcast is by far the biggest cable company in the us.

ugh, why do they all suck????????
