Why Cant I Watch Future and Challenger Tours on TV or Web?

I have always wondered why the lower level tours dont actually get any TV time. I have noticed here in the UK that tennis is pretty much never on TV, except Grand Slams. In the USA they have the Tennis Channel, but why has the Tennis Channel not got onto Sky yet? Additionally, how come they never cover the lower level tours, like Futures and Challengers? There could be some interesting pieces on finding the next Roger Federer or Raphael Nadal, but they seem to have such a narrow focus.
