Getting The Tennis Channel
Dear Tennis Enthusiast,
The Tennis Channel is on the air, making tennis available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Agreements to carry the network are in place with many of the top cable operators and satellite companies, and negotiations are underway with the rest. The Tennis Channel is already available in more than 125 cities across the country and continues to be rolled out on a regular basis from coast to coast. However, many of you are asking: “When will The Tennis Channel be available in my area?” Understandably many of you are anxious and eager to speed up the process. Whether you have cable or satellite, the way to accelerate availability is through consumer demand. Below are two suggestions that communicate your interest to cable and satellite providers:
1) Simply call your cable or satellite provider and let them know you are eager to have them add The Tennis Channel to their channel lineup…as soon as possible!
