    Everyone can watch the tennis channel now and on demand!

    You do not need satellite and if your cable company does not carry it then there is still another way!!

    Its called AKIMBO!

    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.

    Check it out at www.akimbo.com

    If you have Time Warner Cable, adding TTC is only $1.95

    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"?
