    Doubtful, read the contract. I believe DN is allowed to make program changes as necessary. No doubt the legal team has that well covered.

    iTunes is just like Amazon in this respect, you can buy the season or just an episode.

    Not all. I was offered only $5 & declined. We have been with Dish for over 8 years but everytime I call , they offer $5 only & we decline. Even on the Hopper upgrade they would not do 2 Hoppers without the extra $200. First I thought, it depends on the rep you get. Then I realized the longer you are with them, they realize you are not going to leave and don't offer you much. It is called "Reverse Loyalty" :d

    That is possibility I don't know I have not called nor do I plan to.I support DISH that's just my opinion and my choice,everyone would have to decide on their own if the missing channels are worth a call to DISH.For those who do I say Good Luck!:)

    Also would like to comment that it depends which package you subscribe to,how long has it been since you received and accepted an offer.There are reasons why some get an offer while others don't,This has been what I have seen in a little over 10 years with DISH.I always say it doesn't hurt to ask,they can always tell you No,but if you don't ask you will never know.

    I talked to the loyalty dept. and was offered a free Roku, $10 off for 12 months, and the free hd for life deal without needing to autopay. I accepted, now I'll wait to see if I actually get all that.

    Are you actually out anything, or are you just taking it to take something?

    It's really not. There are still a lot of people who believe character counts, and the best time to show it is when there's no penalty for doing the wrong thing. But no, not everyone does things like that.

    I think who it is signing a contract with makes a difference too. If its a broadcast network, they will want longer, if it's a major play like Disney and they are singing on for a lot of high profile channels going no where with pretty predictable budgets, they will go longer, but when it's channels like rainbow medias, that have a couple channels and very little must have programing and no sports that could easily suddenly have no good programs and poor viewership leaving people way overpaying for the channels, I think your absolutely right on. Shorter contracts so they limit their exposure on channels like amc.

    I wouldn't be surprised if some of these channels end up or all already doing one year contracts.

    Nope.
    Having worked at Dish in the past I can tell you this isnt true.
    Length of time with a company doesnt automatically mean your in good standing with them. Your probably not on one of the higher customer tiers in the hierarchy to get the goods.

    Like I said earlier there is no such thing as customer equality, especially at Dish.
    Not everyone will get the same thing and some of you wont even get anything so don't call in expecting and demanding things just because "user y" got a roku and a 10$x12m credit. Your entitled to ask but Dish is not entitled to give you anything either especially if your not that good of a customer.

    Unfortunately with amc and AT&T coming to terms, that doesn't make dish look as good as it did when they where also in doubt to the vast majority of people, which I think is what amc was trying to do too.

    I believe amc probably started it all with ridiculous pricing, and dish decided to finish it quickly and not waste their time and money anymore, by telling them to pound sand, because they are sick and tired of having to go through ridiculous negotiations for channels that are already overpriced for so few of their customers with this particular broadcaster that they have a poor history with.

    Yes I was out AMC. I called Dish to drop to a lower dish package. They asked me why and I told them I was going to get Comcast basic before Breaking Bad came back this month, And Hell On Wheels next month. The lady asked me to talk to loyalty, they explained what a Roku was and how it would be cheaper than getting Comcast. I told her it sounded like a nice deal, she said it was and she would send me a Roku and credit my account $10 a month for 1 year to help the download costs.
    They wanted to keep my full business, made me an offer, and I accepted.
