Does Anybody Have the Tennis Channel?

Anyone at all?
If they do, what's it like? Do they have good camera angles?
Who are the tennis commentators? Are they good or annoying?

I don't know how many times I have emailed my cable provider. They don't seem to care. They always say that there's not enough insterst to carry the channel.

NOPE!

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

I have it. The angles are fine. Fed Cup camera shots are a little bad, well some of the venues they are bad. The commentators are complete idiots and should all be replaced.

I heard that a new satellite thing called Voom, will have it.
But it will cost $749 to install it.
I wish DirectTV or Dish Network would carry the TTC.
I would switch from my cable provider to one of them.

No way I'm paying $749 just to get one channel.

I have it because I have Warner Cable. It costs $1.95 per month but you get TTC plus 4 other sports networks.

They are trying hard to get the channel to all the cable providers but it's tough, I guess.

Yeah I have Time Warner Cable and I don't have it yet. They better not charge more money considering I already pay an arm and a leg.

I live in New York too and have Time Warner also. But they kept on telling me it is not in the data base.

Time Warner In Ohio has it. $2 a month.I pay an arm and leg too for cable,but thought $2 would be worth it so I don't go through withdraw this winter.I have been enjoying the live tennis also,but we do lose our digital picture at times.
Some really good instruction too.
