    All the AMC v Dish threads are locked. But we really can't let this story go unnoticed:
    What is fuzzy in the story but is sort of explained is that carriage fees are reported when received which apparently runs a quarter behind. And advertising revenue grew 16% which affects the total picture.

    Hmm... so they raised their rates at Dish and AT&T last year but still made less money?

    And I know some of their programs have been going up in the ratings... so how did they manage to screw things up?

    It's not good to take on Charlie. They lost a lot of revenue during the battle and that appeared in the 4th Quarter results.

    I'm not quite sure how to take this info, but it appears this is the reason they settled, for what many of would say was very favorable terms to Dish. They needed the revenue.

    So even with the missing DISH income they made 8.2 percent more in the quarter. They were still profitable, just a little less profitable.

    Yes, but they get killed by those analysts oriented to the "you didn't meet our projections." It's a tough world out there, full of critics. I'm happy they made money as I'm look forward to the next season of "Mad Men.'

    I don't watch AMC due to ads. IFC is a joke.

    "No one is watching" = "I don't watch it." ;) Doesn't matter if it is one of the top viewed dramas on TV.

    On DISH? It has been "testing" since the beginning of January. Somewhere between soon and never remains my guess.

    Sundance is an odd duck here... since you have to think that was part of the new negotiations when they settled the lawsuit last year... so I'm amazed Sundance hasn't come to us in HD a long time ago.

    It almost has to be a technical issue at this point. I can't believe it would be a contractual one.
