Posted 23 December 2011 - 11:55 PM
Got an email from BB online saying they're removing their app from my Vizio BD.
Anyone else have this situation?

Did they say when? I just checked mine and it's still on there. I don't sub however.
3 Jan. Just looked on the BB on Demand site and Vizio isn't even listed anymore.
Wonder what the story is.
I subscribe but haven't used it, still have that $5 credit guess I'll use that in the next few days.

...and this relates only to Dish just how? Don't you think everyone would like to know this information?
I apologized in advance if posted in error to the wrong area.
I apologize again for antagonizing you so.
And a Merry Christmas to you and your family.

It could go in the Blu-ray players area, but less people would see it... I could be wrong, but I suspect being in the Dish general forum it will get more eyes than if moved, so I'm ok with it being here for now.

Perhaps if there was enough traffic. The same thought crossed our minds when DISH bought Sling a few years back making Slingboxes a DISH Network product. We'll see how it goes.
Maybe there should be a new forum under "Dish Network Products and Services"
As for the removal of BB from Vizio it doesn't make sense to me to eliminate a way people can purchase your product unless it is replaced by a better way or a way that makes more money. How does this change better or make more money for DISH/Blockbuster?

If my Vizio HDTV wasn't a gift(it was) I would unload it and go with a HDTV manufacturer that does not have a "vanishing apps" issue.
