    Aye, I would pay extra for TAN and Funimation. It's frustrating to see those channels not on Directv..but channels like Ion still are wasting bandwith. All Ion shows is infomercials. I'm hoping they ditch G4 and Ion and give us The Anime Network.

    I would love to see the Tennis Channel too. The more TV time that Maria gets, the better! ;)

    There, an Avatar has finally arrived! Couldn't find a decent one with all of them, so I chose my boy Duke :)

    thanks, I might have to change them up once in a while, I love my doggies and love showing them off...except for one, who needs a thump in the head.

    Now -I- have to have a service call in the morning because my youngest and dumbest dog decided the cables on the side of the house were yummy.

    Great, isn't it?

    I think we have gone off topic. But I can't resist what kind of puppies do you have?

    Danes, of course!

    And btw, there are lots of people who want the Tennis Channel, but I believe you are the most enthusiastic about it!

    :lol: Duh--sometimes I can't believe how stupid I am. Of course, they would be Danes like your Avatar. And yes since I have been trying to get D to get TTC for 3 years now I would have to say I'm the most enthusiastic about it :yesman: And I would have been trying longer than that, but I didn't find out about TTC until well after they started up. But being enthusiastic about it has not gotten me TTC :(
    Of course in all fairness to D I have read where some people have said TTC isn't a good channel now. Apparently there is a lot of "fill" to the programming--you know things being repeated. I think they need the rights to more Tournaments, but they can't get that until they have more channel coverage :rolleyes: It's a no win situation right now for TTC :nono2: :(

    TTC has to get on D! If they could tell the tennis tournaments that D carried them, I know they would get the rights to more tournaments. D is the "gold standard" when it comes to sports :sunsmile: So TTC needs D, but D can get along just fine without TTC :(

    :hurah: I think? I'm glad the postings on tennis sites were true about D, the FO, and TTC :) Of course leave it to D to provide the twist--I hadn't read anything about it being interactive until now ;) However, as I mentioned earlier in the thread it concerns me that it is the FO. The Slam the American tennis fan is least interested in because our tennis players don't play well on clay at all :( Plus the time difference between the U.S. and France which you might know now I can't even remember what the difference is :confused: I'm crossing my fingers on this one and I hope it does better than I think it will--please :angel: BTW thanks for the posting :sunsmile:

    I know the FO is sometime away yet, but D doesn't seem to be giving the FO any big play right now :( But what is really surprising is that TTC isn't making a big deal about working with D :( TTC really needs to do that because they really, really need D :yesman:

    D*mn I can't believe I missed it :rolleyes: I got so interested in the interactive French Open that I didn't read on and see that the article said Directv will launch TTC later in the Fall :hurah: Of all things for me to miss that would have to be it :blush: Well I guess I can stop :beatdeadhorse: now :sunsmile:
