Tennis Channel < Golf Channel
By Kickntrue on 1/7/10
The Tennis Channel is pissed off at Comcast for putting it on a separate sports tier from others like Golf Channel. They are accusing Comcast of discrimination. The key to their argument is that Comcast owns Golf Channel and Versus giving them more incentive to keep those on more basic plans.
The Tennis Channel filed its complaint with the Federal Communications Commission on Tuesday. The company's chief executive, Ken Solomon, called the case "a litmus test for unaffiliated programmers everywhere."

Comcast Corp., the nation's largest cable company, says it fully honors the terms of its program carriage contract with the Tennis Channel.
Are they right? Probably. Should they win their court case? Maybe in America, but I still doubt it. If NFL Network can't win this fight against Comcast I don't know how Tennis Channel will.

Here's the thing- who wants to watch tennis? Tennis sucks. I'm probably in the top 5% of America's tennis tv viewers and I'm telling you it blows. The only thing worse than watching Tennis Channel (I actually get the channel) is watching Golf Channel... oh. Make the few people who do want to see it pay extra- that's just good business. If the Tennis Channel wants more ratings- they should improve their programming. Then viewers would call Comcast and demand that it be moved to a more basic level of programming. My suggestion- "The Russian Tennis Women's Calendar Shoot," playing on repeat 24/7. Heck, I'd even volunteer to shoot it for them free of charge.

I just finished this post- and realized it is hardly about golf. I just saw "Golf Channel" mentioned and started writing. ... but I'm done writing it. ... and it's January. ... and I already found this picture ... and you guys are sick of talking about Tiger Woods.

If the Tennis Channel has women like that on it, I agree- they should be part of basic cable! Somehow, I doubt it, though.
