    I know it does not belong here but i really didnt know where else to put it. It kinda belongs here because it is about the pros.

    Anyway....now everyone can watch the tennischannel for free:

    Ive had this for a few weeks and the tennis channel works well, other soccer links on sports channels from China are unpredictable however.

    This is also posted somewhere else. I downloaded it a while ago, TTC works well but the quality of it isn't all that great but it's decent.

    be careful though...this other site offers you like 3,000 channels for 49.99 a month. I think its bs.....by the way what time is the Canas match tommorow?

    I am guessing thats 3:45 pm spanish time. which is about 9:45 a.m eastern time and about 6:45 French open time. ...I site actually says that it will start at 10:00 a.m. eastern time so that would mean 7:00 a.m. Pacific...right?

    Paris time (French Open time) is the same as Barcelona time except if French Open time means something else.

    I wonder why they dont offer a paid streaming version of the tennis channel like the ATP does to master's events? TVU is better than nothing but the quality is horrible, download times abysmal sometimes, like watching a slo motion movie. A dedicated server would solve the problem, plus all the people who complain that their local cable/satellite provider dont carry the tennis channel can now opt for the internet version. I mean they are already making it available online, its just the quality needs to be better.

    They really should just provide it online for free. The real money comes from advertisers. there is no way to pause so you are forced to watch commercials. If they gave it away for free everyone would watch. And then with so many people watching advertisers will pay more and more to advertise!

    TV networks won't mind charging a minimal fee for extra profit either, even though they don't need that to be profitable.
    People are willing to play that minimal fee too, thinking it is just small money.
    Econ 101. so, here we go with subscribed tv.

    first game for Federer
    he better pick his 1st serves up fast and calm down cause for now Volandri is the one dictating play and Federer's the one on the defensive

    actuially no I didnt know that and I didnt even know there was anything illegal about it.

    But you know whats even more stupid? Someone who knowingly re-posts about this completely dead issue and causes it to be reborn. Now thats really stupid.

    If no tennis channel here, is there any place to view live and/or archives of tennis matches via internet? ThnX

    It was there for only a month or so last year. It's not there anymore. It depends entirely on the availability of a broadcaster
