Suggesting a new forum section dealing with disputes and/or media business news and announcements that don't really fit well in the existing sections.

Most disputes are provider specific so there really is no need for a forum like that. Besides, some users have all forums removed from their list except their own provider which might keep them from seeing disputes that could affect them.

True, but some involve other parties like the Time-Warner dispute. Granted that's cable not DBS, but it's still of interest to some considering the current frequency of disputes and the "I'm switching carriers" comments. More coverage of these might show that it isn't either DBS carrier that is more 'at fault'.

I also see quite a few other stories about the content providers not specific to DBS like the NBC/Comcast sale.

Kicking this back up again.

 

Stories like the SOAPNet shutdown and the associated article on 'zombie channels' are not specific to any carrier or even distribution method.  It affects everything, cable, satellite and streaming.
