Considering that Fox is giving HD-loving baseball viewers the shaft, yet cable will once again regain Extra Innings privileges, it's been quite the whirlwind in HD sports of late. Thankfully, we've got more positive news on the tennis front, as an agreement has reportedly been reached to allow DirecTV subscribers to start catching the Tennis Channel later this summer. According to the network's CEO, a firm date for the launch hasn't been set, but "late August" appears to be a relatively safe bet. Of course, the feed we're all waiting for (yeah, the HD flavor) won't go live until November, but hopefully DirecTV will have had time to set up a few additional HD channels to keep us occupied in the meantime.
