There is no deal yet, but just very vague reports that they are "in negotiations." In the meantime, it wouldn't hurt to let DirecTV know you want them to pick it up, if you haven't already. Here are two options for doing just that:

Fill out the form at http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/glb/Form_Feedback.jsp

Or email directly to feedback@directv.com

I did both.

right, as of this time no.

I have dish network and if you want to harrass the hell out of them you can do so the following ways:

1-800-333-DISH (3474) or
http://www.dishnetwork.com/content/a...t_us/index.asp

I called them last week and the op had no idea what the hell I was talking about but she wrote down the information. So, call everyday like I did.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

Dish Network is different from DirecTV.

I have Dish Network, thus I'm fucked... because they're very open-minded on getting the dumbest channels... but they flat out say they will not add the Tennis Channel.

DirecTV is supposed to be getting it though... but I also though Dish Network was buying out DirecTV soon. I don't know.

I e-mailed and called direct tv. I find it absurd that I can get a live horse racing channel in which I can call in bets, but I can't get the tennis channel.

I called Comcast, my digital cable provider and they stated they didnt know if they were going to carry the channel, but they were putting forms in for each caller..... So if you have Comcast, please call!! We're shafted enough with the lack of coverage, atleast give us our channel!!

Just emailed Directv. I hope it makes a difference. Just ya'll watch, once we finally get the tennis channel, 90% of it will be crap instruction shows from Vic Braeden and Nick Boliterri.

yeah, they might be different but they're the same in a lot of ways.

the U.S. gov't is trying to stop the merger but it allows comcast to buy at&t digital cable and AOL to buy Time Warner... wtf?

IF YOU live in San Diego, like me, you can get it on Cox Digital Cable. It will be on channel 367

I've seen numerous ads for at Circuit City that DirecTV will be having the channel. I think the Tennis Channel guy said it would be on DirecTV, too.
