Tennis Channel returns to Armstrong in carriage deal

US pay-television broadcaster Tennis Channel has broadened its reach by agreeing a multi-year carriage deal with cable television provider Armstrong.

Armstrong has started rolling out Tennis Channel in a number of markets, including Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Youngstown, Ohio, with the company’s entire customer footprint across five states expected to have access to the network by later this year.

Tennis Channel, which is currently broadcasting the Wimbledon championships in the US, is available on Armstrong’s widely distributed Variety Pack and HD Advantage package.

Armstrong has carried Tennis Channel in the past, as part of the network’s initial National Cable Television Cooperative agreement, but the new agreement marks the broadcaster’s return after three years without coverage in the provider’s markets.
