if true! Won't take me long to ditch DirecTV.

SatelliteGuys.US has learned that Dish Network will be adding the Tennis Channel on February 23rd. The Tennis Channel will be in FREE PREVIEW MODE on channel 400 for all Dish Network AT60 and higher subscribers through March 31st. After that time the Tennis Channel will only be available in the AT180 package.

Re: Dish Network adding Tennis Channel!

I have DirecTv right now. I'm going to switch if it becomes official. But what a pain in the ass. Why can't DirecTv offer TTC?

Re: Dish Network adding Tennis Channel!

this is GREAT NEWS!!! I've had the tennis channel (via comcast) for the past few months and it is markedly improving. Lots more tournament coverage. Now if they would just get Zabaleta's show on there I'd be in heaven.

Re: Dish Network adding Tennis Channel!

What the hell is wrong with DirecTV? Get with the program....I don't want to deal with switching!

"Work like you don't need the money, Sing like nobody's listening, Dance like nobody's watching, Love like you've never been hurt." - Mark Twain

Through this world I've stumbled, So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word to find, The truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles, And you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one, To hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after, I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Re: Dish Network adding Tennis Channel!

kinda sucks that it's on american's top 180 and not in that sports package (which is only 5 bucks more than if you'd be switching from top 60)

Thank you for your e-mail. Specific information regarding your request for Tennis Channel is not currently available. We would like to add that channel, to make viewers like you happy, but we do not know if or when this will happen. We will gladly forward your request to our Programming Department for further consideration.
I got this answer from Dish network on Friday, which shows that sending emails is useless if the person answering the email is a moron, or if the company policy is to answer nothing.

Direct TV is much better at answering these questions.
For all of us direct tv users, Direct TV "will not be adding TTC anytime in the near future, as contract negotiations have stopped" that is what a Direct tv email response said, so not good news for Direct tv users.

I have both Direct tv and Dish, but there is no way in hell that I will pay for 180 channels when I only want one channel. I would rather pay $5 a month just for that channel, I hope they have that option available.

I'm still waiting for Comcast Berkeley or any place in the bay area to pick it up.
