I had to do some things I would rather not say on a public message board.... ;) j/k I dunno, I am one of the lucky ones. Time Warner decided to carry it hear and that is why I signed up for digital cable. I made a very good clip of the match and posted it in GM, check it out. I will post some more later.

Venus Forever, check out their website. Mine just put it in the line up a month ago. It didn't even come up when they first installed it, I had to call and get it added because of some glitch. It is # 112 here.

Hey there!
I have the Tennis Channel and it's okay! Sometimes it shows good stuff. Still hasn't gotten into the classic matches which would be awesome. But all in all I'd say it's up and coming, week by week it get's better.

THE TENNIS CHANNEL REACHES 16 NEW MARKETS ON AUGUST 1

Momentum Builds With Expansion into Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Memphis, Winston-Salem, Knoxville and Baton Rouge, Among Others
LOS ANGELES (July 29, 2003) –- The Tennis Channel, the 24-hour cable network devoted to the comprehensive coverage of tennis and other racquet sports, will be available in 16 new markets on Friday, Aug. 1.

After its successful May 15 launch, The Tennis Channel is rapidly adding market distribution stemming from agreements with Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications and Knology.

Beginning Friday, the network will be distributed on Time Warner Cable in Minneapolis, Minn.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Memphis, Tenn.; Greensboro and Winston-Salem, N.C.; and Waco, Texas. The Tennis Channel also will be carried on Cox Cable in Baton Rouge, La. and Pensacola, Fla.

“Response to The Tennis Channel from cable systems and their subscribers has been overwhelming since our May launch,” says The Tennis Channel Chairman and CEO David Meister. “It’s clear the tennis world has been an under-served audience and we’re excited with the momentum we’ve been able to build that allows us to bring the best of tennis programming into more and more households nationwide.”

“The Tennis Channel’s distribution rollout is accelerating,” says The Tennis Channel’s Senior Vice President of Distribution Randy Brown. “This increased support by the cable industry reflects an exciting program schedule, and is very gratifying.”
