Interesting, they have announced a new $6/mo package that includes Tennis PLUS some things that are currently included in IO (Versus, MLBTV, etc.). I guess that those will disappear from our screens, unless we ante-up the $6.

The iO Sports Pak is not new. Versus, Golf Channel and MLB are available in both the Sports Pak and the iO Package. If you're only interested in the sports channels and nothing else in the iO Package then you can order Family Cable plus the Sports Pak, that's the reason they're in both, and have been for quite some time.

I would guess this might be the HD version of the MSG overflow channel. In the guides, the overflow channel is labelled SPTS. This is SPTSH. We can only hope. I can't watch those games in SD anymore.

No, it was supposed to be Tennis Channel but they refused to authorize the signal because they felt Cablevision negotiated in bad faith.

Hmmm. 795 is back again with that old channel identifier...

"We have opened up channels 399 and 795 for the standard-definition and HD feeds of the Tennis Channel and are looking forward to making the network available to our Sports Pak customers"

Tennis Channel has until Friday (Sept 25th) to authorize the signal under the terms of the deal. I 'm sure this story will be in the news again in the coming days.

Tennis Will Authorize Signal To Cablevision - 2009-09-23 16:55:33 EDT | Multichannel News


This afternoon, the network issued this statement: "Effective September 24, 2009, Tennis Channel has elected for now to grant signal access to Cablevision pursuant to its request under Tennis Channel's agreement with the National Cable Television Cooperative. We remain deeply concerned about Cablevision's tactic of using our agreement with NCTC to undermine the parties' longstanding negotiations and to carry Tennis Channel on terms that do not serve the interests of its customers. Cablevision's actions are particularly alarming in light of the recent change in NCTC, which has transformed itself from a small-operator buying cooperative into an entity that reaches 26.7 million cable subscribers. That is more than the number reached by the largest cable provider in the United States. These actions have industry-wide ramifications and should be addressed by the appropriate regulatory authorities."

For its part, Cablevision volleyed this reply: "We welcome the Tennis Channel to the iO Sports Pak. It is unfortunate that the leadership of the Tennis Channel decided to withhold its programming until now, denying our customers the ability to receive its U.S. Open coverage, but we look forward to now making it available to any Cablevision customer who wants to receive it."

Sometime in the past few days CV updated the guide with the TC programming. They also changed the SPTSH to TNSHD
