Does anyone know if it will be available in Canada? In digital or normal cable?

wow...I hope my local Adelphia company will offer it...I think I will bug them about it...would be nice if they could also show some old Slam matches from the past (only more womens' , wishful thinking)..ESPN "Center Court Classics" keeps showing a handful of past Slam matches over and over again. Not much variety.

My guess is it will be a digital cable channel but I don't know for sure.

They are going to show classic matches. Unfortunately, they have comitted to more men's tournaments than women's. HOW STUPID! I Kinda feel sorry for them for doing that.

Dish network better pick this up or I'm out.. but what with 40% dedicated to instructional tennis.. this seems like it's going to be a boring ass channel like the Gold Channel that shows those instructional crap.. *I never water the Golf Channel* just have to pass by it to get to the real sports channel.

"If viewers want more tournament coverage or if they end up loving our news then they'll get more of it."
