    If Cablevision doesn't get the tennis channel soon, I'm going to freak out. Do you think writing letters will help?

    Is it already on the package? I have versus HD which is part of that package so I assume my dad ordered it. What channel would it be on?

    TC is not that exciting.

    I really enjoyed it when I had DirecTV, but we've switched over to AT&T U-Verse (to synchronize, phone, internet, and TV). AT&T has still not offered the Tennis Channel and my understanding is that they are still in talks, but I have no idea when they may offer it, unfortunately. It's unbelievable to me that we get every other channel under the sun, but NOT the Tennis Channel.

    Hopefully, the two companies can work it out, because, not offering the Tennis Channel only hurts both AT&T and the Tennis Channel.

    Tennis is not that exciting. The channel tries its best.

    They are showing now a bunch of WTA and repeat of Davis Cup between Spain and Israel, I'm sick and tired watching them all over again and again. Very frustrating to selection of matches to show.

    It's listed on the sports package but TC hasn't started broadcasting (as of the US Open). Not sure if they are going to start now?

    They should try harder. Parts of it are great, parts are not. Most of the best coverage still comes from the bigger networks.

    Yeah I dont have the channel, but I have one or two that are included in that package for some reason. Time to spend more money.

    I agree. It's only good during grand slams and a few other tourneys. Other than that, it's a bunch of Davis Cup and Open Access reruns.
