    Comcast & D* are locked in a retrans battle over the highly watched G4 channel.

    Well they dropped OLN(Versus) for awhile(like Dish network).So all those that think channels are safe better guess again when it comes around to contract time.It will be a growing trend with all providers.;)

    There was much more to the D* vs Comcast battle over VERSUS than just the carriage fee that made it drag on for as long as it did.

    They must have gotten a deal worked out then. I wouldn't even have known about it if it wasn't for the thread about it in the D* Programming forum.

    Well you can see it coming DirecTV can't afford to price itself too much higher than Dish network when it comes to programming.It will be interesting to watch.;)

    That's what bugs me about a thread like this... you know that what you said is 100% true... IF Dish immediately passed on a new rate increase, the same people would freak out. When Dish waits and rolls it into a February increase, people freak out. When Dish tries to keep the prices down and risks losing channels, people freak out. If the sun comes up, people freak out.

    All you have to do is look up the regular prices between the two providers comparing programming?.:confused:

    Well, I pulled the trigger. Last night, I signed up for Direct TV. I was amazed to compare my Dish bill to Direct and found Direct to be 20+ dollars cheaper per month over the next two years. After being a loyal Dish customer for the last 12 years, it is my time to go. Funny, I am the only one in my Family that was still with Dish. But, Direct has a great deal going on and I jumped for it.

    We were having a simple and civil discussion without anyone bashing either provider. You made the comment. We asked for examples. You are still dodging.

    I'm a troll because you can't back up your comments? I have seen more rude & troll-like posts from Dish subs than Directv subs in this thread.
