    Hewitt Fan, Cox cable in Fairfax just started broadcasting The Tennis Channel on May 3rd. Give'm a call. You need to buy the optional sports package. You owe me dinner for this one. Artie's will do just fine.

    not sure if you have seen my post below. But it seems VOOM is an alternative way to get TTC:

    I just got the newsletter from VOOM reporting that they have added 5 ESPN channels to their package. Since they already have Tennis Channel, it's obvious that VOOM is becoming the choice for tennis fans. Check it out at

    It's great. There's almost always something on TV now that I have the Tennis Channel.
    A big plus, they actually show some doubles...

    haha Audiodude, where do you live? and where do you play? i might know you , I cant really change to Cox because my parents are in control of that, there is nothing i can do about it but to wait to come to Dish network and do you have any idea how much it is?

    I live in Fairfax Station, across from Burke Lake Park. I play Night Owl @ Fairfax Racquet Club. I also play at Wakefield on occasion, and various other courts. My next door neighbor has a tennis court, so I play there, as well.

    I haven't seen any indication that Direct TV or Dish will be picking up The Tennis Channel anytime soon. Bummer for you.

    Call Voom. 1-800-get-Voom. I just signed up today. Free installation, no contract, etc.. Plus they carry the tennis Channel. It is also about the same price as Direct TV, and Dish Network but also has high definition channels. I can't wait. Finally get to see players from all over the world, , plus Davis Cup!

    My name is Mike DeBoard. All the teaching pro's have left by the time I arrive to play. (10:00 pm) Can't say I blame them. Night Owl officially ended yesterday, so I'll be playing outdoors until September, for the most part. College Park seems like quite a haul.
