In fact you can watch anything anytime! It dowloads TV from the internet. They have the Tennis Channel...hell they have almost every channel. The unit is $99.99 and the monthly charge is $9.99.

The problem is that I have cable vision. There are way too many trees where I live for satellite. So I have to use Akimbo.

Actually, if you happen to have a Media Center PC and something like an XBOX, you don't need the hardware, so the fee is for programming only. But I can't tell if you can actually watch the channel itself or if you can only get the few (selected, crappy) programs that the service archives from the channel.

Looks like there's a 30-day free trial, so maybe I'll try to find out and report back.

I use an IP-TV service for a soccer channel (Setanta Sport) the quality is not great, but its beats going to a bar to watch games.

Hmm well, I just happen to have a media center pc AND an xbox 360. Maybe I'll download this.

Okay, I can't say it seems too impressive. It's not the actual TTC broadcast but just a few on demand shows, almost all instructional, two or three Davis Cup matches, all for a download beyond the subscription.

Downloaded one instructional clip, and the quality was okay. But I'm not sure exactly who the audience is here. This would be a sweet, sweet deal if you actually got the broadcast for the 10 bucks per month the OP suggested.

Speaking of which: S&V, what's with all the exclamation points? Why is this such exciting news to be able to pay $100 plus $10 a month plus an extra six bucks to watch a 1999 Henman-Martin Davis Cup "Classic"?
