The good news is that TTC has live streaming of matches available - I don't know if this is something that was available previous to the issue with various cable serivice providers but there is a link from their website. The bad news, however, is that it is not great quality but I don't know if that is a function of their system or a slow connectionon my end.
i think that was the point, that the tennis channel chose this time to annoy the most people...from the reports i've read, the tennis channel wants to be on the basic line ups and not in the tiers that you have to pay for, verizon must have said no, they want them to be paid for so it was dropped. i am sure the time frame of the US OPEN was on purpose to get people riled up. I had the tennis channel under the extreme package...but i see its not listed there anymore. is it only on for the ultimate package?
There isn't a week that goes by that Comcast doesn't make me an offer that's superior to what I currently have from Verizon FIOS. Up to this point, it just hasn't been work the hassle. Now, it's worth the hassle.
