    RE: Braves games.
    617 (Directv) showed up in the on-screen guide this morning. Not sure if the game will be available to all subscribers, or if you will need a special subscription. Will know shortly :)

    well dish has failed again. when every provider around me has it dish once again does not. if my contract was coming up again shortly i would just buy out and switch tonight. Direct TV has had my locals for a year now in HD. Plus a ton more nationally. Why the heck is anyone staying with Dish Network?

    Here's the reply I got from Peachtree TV regarding Dish network carring the 45 Atlanta Braves games on Peachtree TV.

    "Dish Network has not yet announced plans to carry the Braves games on Peachtree TV. Please contact them to find out if they plan to carry the games."

    Are you in the Atlanta DMA? Are your locals out of Atlanta?

    I am in the Albany, Ga. DMA and that is where we get our locals. The cable company in Albany and DirectTV are carrying Peachtree TV's coverage of 45 Braves games and thus far Dish is not.

    Missing the game tonight on Dish Network and Andruw Jones' return to Atlanta... oh well :(

    Typical Dish. I really think they're getting to the point where they're not even trying to be competitive with DirecTV.

    How Dish is responding to the issue:

    "We are working diligently to provide the additional Atlanta Braves games carried by Peachtree TV outside of the Atlanta DMA, but we do not have an agreement at this time. We hope to have a resolution soon."

    Hopefully Dish* will pick up Peachtree. A lot of angry customers.

    Hopefully, this is not too far off topic: Anyone who's getting Peachtree TV via OTA can possibly answer this. When 17.1 was WTBS, my signal strength was in the upper 90's; now it's in the lower 60's. My antenna hasn't moved and the other OTA's come in fine. Did they lower the output?

    What is the best way to communicate to the people at Dish, that we want Peachtree TV's coverage of the Atlanta Braves games added to Dish as has been done with every other provider in Georgia? Maybe if enough people let them know , they will wake up and get this done.

    That BLOWS. I'm in South Carolina, which is SUPPOSED to be in the Braves market.

    A friend of mine in Charleston has CommunistCast, and he gets the games on PeachTree.

    A coworker has DirecTV, and he gets the games on PeachTree.

    And I'm stuck with #$@$%#& Dish Network and NO games because they don't carry Peachtree.

    I repeat: That BLOWS, and I curse the ground that Ted Turner walks on.

    Yeah, is there anyway to get through to them other than e-mailing or dealing with CSRs on the phone?

    Any update on this? Should we keep calling the CSRs in India or do e-mails work better? Do we write to ceo@echostar?

    Somebody asked the question on an Atlanta Braves board, is DISH not going to pick up the Peachtree games for its customers inside the Braves Territory?

    My provider, DirecTV, has them and Comcast has them too.

    Good question, I've about had it with the situation. My suggestion is to do the same thing I am doing, call and e-mail Dish EVERY DAY and request this channel. If it doesn't get added before the first of June when they start showing several games in a row, I'm "moving" to Atlanta so I can get it as a local channel. Enough's enough and they need to get this up.

    Not that it makes any difference, but I don't think PeachtreeTV as a local channel shows the Braves in HD like they do OTA but I may be wrong about that. But, it's better than nothing.
    It looks really good OTA.
