    Surely not. It would be on Tennis Channel. Dont expect to see tennis in any of the channels you have listed unless its US Open, Wimbledon, French Open or Australian Open... or maybe Sony Ericsson Open final.

    I believe CBS showed some of the US Open Series finals last year.

    My cable provider did not have Tennis Channel HD either and they charged me $2/month for it. I switched to DirecTV last summer and now I have TTC in HD and many others. The grand slam coverage on DirecTV is awesome. The first week they show 5 or 6 matches at a time. They give you a screen where you can watch them all at once too.

    Oh ya, totally forgot about US Open Series. Yup, those channels do show tournaments in US Open Series.

    Anyway, i'm not staying in US, but it all seems to me that having a satellite TV is much better than having cable TV as satellite TV has more HD channels and of course more channels in generally. So why are people still prefer cable over satellite? Is it because satellitte channels go off when there is rain? Lolz.

    I use Dish Network.

    Could not live without the Tennis Channel and have grown so accustomed to HD I wont watch anything else.

    My wife despises tennis channel and groans ever single time she turns the tv on because its always tuned there because im recording something.

    I can't get this to play more than 5 seconds without pausing. Gets pretty annoying.
    I'll try that to see if it doesn't pause as often as CS.net.

    I love TTC's clay season broadcast. Not only do you get the matches live from early morning to mid afternoon, they'll repeat the matches in the evening. It's great to catch up on them. I wish they had all the Masters. I don't care for the commentators very much, but I never care for commentators that much.
