Tennis Channel is nothing great...

Tennis Channel is nothing great...I have it and it kinda sucks. No good match coverage. You watch the same 3 shows over and over. The only good thing is some of the instructionals....

Anybody else feel the same?

Re: Tennis Channel is nothing great...

Well, I want it. They get live coverage of a lot of great events, like a whole bunch of the spring US events coming up, plus all the overseas TMS events! and the old stuff would be nice to watch on a rainy day or somethign.

Re: Tennis Channel is nothing great...

I'm trying to get my parents go buy a cable package addition with the Tennis Channel on it. Just to have it really. I couldn't care less if it's horrible or not. It's the Tennis channel. Gotta have it. :P

Re: Tennis Channel is nothing great...

Can I move in with you Fumus?? Because I'll bet my bottom dollar that TTC is a hell of a lot better with the tennis coverage than anything ESPN and CBS have given to us in the past ten years.....

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Tennis Channel is nothing great...

the problem with TTC is that they don't do the slams, so you still have to rely on the evils of ESPN and CBS, et al for that coverage.

I hear So Cal is a good place for TTC, makes me want to go to law school there even more

Re: Tennis Channel is nothing great...

I don't get it here. I "have to call my cable subscriber and ask for it". If I have to go through all that and then be told that it's not available in my area, then no thank you....

Re: Tennis Channel is nothing great...

*supposedly* the phonecalls really do help... they're supposed to pass every call/request up to the supervisors and I guess in a few markets that's been how the channel was added.

Personally I'd like to see the USTA and some of the big-name players vocally support it, I think that would help if they'd put some gusto behind the effort.

Re: Tennis Channel is nothing great...

I don't have it but would like to have it. It's still better than no tennis.

Guess I'll have to move to So Cal now.

Re: Tennis Channel is nothing great...

But you're going to get so much great coverage of the men's Masters Series! Plus they've promised to show the semifinals and finals of over 10 WTA tournaments this year from all over the world! I'd appreciate it!

I don't want it, simply because I don't want to be addicted to TV, and get fat.

Re: Tennis Channel is nothing great...

Dude--I wouldn't complain w/having a 24 hr. tennis channel...You're going to get more matches than most of us in the USA w/o it...Count your blessings!

Re: Tennis Channel is nothing great...

My thoughts on the Tennis Channel...

Since I only got it starting in December, I haven't gotten to see any live matches - just interviews with the same players. So really, I've been quite underwhelmed by TTC, though lately I've been digging the 2003 Davis Cup matches they've been showing.

I think we should give TTC more time to grow. It's relatively new, isn't it? Hope they show more of the smaller tournaments coming up - I'm tired of seeing Dent and Agassi features on whenever I come home from work.
