BTW: The channel lit just before 3pm (per the Uplink Activity).


I can see 212 but there is no guide data past 4:30 PM. I tried to set a DVR timer for 5:00 but couldn't. I ended up setting a timer for the last lasted program @4:30 and then added an hour to the ending.

As someone who has Glenn's first day on Headline News as well as his first day on FNC archived on an external hard drive, I wanted to be sure to get his first day on Dish.

You should at least have present and next program listed on 212 ... the rest will appear when the EPG updates (typically overnight).

I was home briefly around 4:00 PM. I saw the end of Glenn's radio show and the beginning of Liberty Tree House. There was a second Liberty Tree House that started at 4:30 and that was the end of the guide data. I unplugged the DVR to try and force a refresh of the guide but no luck. That's why I set the timer with the extension. We'll see what I get :)

BTW: I wonder if we'll ever get The Blase in HD? After all it's in HD on the web.

I liked Glenn Beck when he was on B104 in Baltimore.

I don't think I will be watching much of this network though.

Uh NO ONE is forcing you too watch ch 212 just like Im not forced to watch MSNBC or Current Tv---thank God! ....and bravo dish to Dish for providing GBTV/The Blaze... And A quick Peek at Direct tv's Facebook page seems to indicate any loses from GBTV will be made up with ex Dtv customers wanting it too...and I would also Refer you to post# 2 as Mr. Long ask this thread not turned political

The issue is not that they do not want The Blaze.
The issue is they don't want YOU to see and hear a different point of view.

OK, I'm done with the politics in here.

CONGRATS to DISH and Mr. Beck!

Moderator Note: While "The Blaze" is a political channel DBSTalk is not a political discussion forum. Please keep this in mind during the discussion that follows.


How can one discuss a political channel and it not be a political discussion? :rolleyes:...look for creative ways to do the "skirt" dance!?

Simply stay away from named politicians, political groups, inflammatory language and name calling. Most have been mature enough to be able to express an opinion one way or the other without crossing any lines. Keep it clean.

I am willing to wage that The Blaze will outpace Oprah's Network in a very short time.


lol. Not a big task.

posted before about my take on this guy, but hey, I agree, don't watch it if you don't like it.

What would have been cool, if dish would have offered something else [ another movie channel?] along with this political one. I think a balance would have been fair.

How many [decent] channels have we gained back since losing amc? [ and the other 3, and yeah, I'd rather watch IFC or Sundance than blaze.

Adding 212 to my package doesn't make me all warm and fuzzy.
Don't care if he was cheap.

It's like adding another espn or info-mercial channel. No joy here.

This is JMO, and I stand by it, for all the fans of blaze.........

Not in HD, but it looks pretty darn good for SD. Of course, up until a few months ago, I had D*, so almost all SD looks good to me now. :)

I wonder what the deal is, GB seems pumped about his Dish Launch but is preaching to the subs to keep the money flowing....I guess the Dish deal was not so much. The SD is pretty good, could HD be far away? GB says he's going to change the way we watch the news. :lol:
I just wish AMC and Voom were still around, oh yea and multi network time zone feeds in HD, and maybe "Sunday Ticket".... :icon_stup
Thank you and

Well, I think that the market is starving for something like Beck. I'll be interested to see how it does ratings wise. What I mean, without veering into any ideology, is that there is a strong market for what Beck offers. You don't get it on any of the major networks, and you really don't get it on Fox News. Hannity is probably the closest thing, but other than that a lot of Fox is down the middle, and I know people will disagree.

If Beck does well, I think people need to see that first, what an accomplishment to come from Internet TV to a major carrier. But secondly, it's not that Beck would have brought his Beck-brainwashed followers to Dish, but that he is serving a severely underserved market. Watch it blow up. How do I know? I see so much resistance to it. If it didn't have the resistance it would be ho-hum blase...for better or worse, this is the new divided America we live in, blame who you will. Partisanship will be part of TV viewing from here on.

I think he wants to keep the internet base of support intact. They simply don't to lose the revenue. I suspect you won't see any Blaze TV content on the Dish on Demand service. If you want it on demand, it'll be 10 bucks a month.

The Dish launch is just the beginning. In fact, according to Christopher Balfe, the CEO of TheBlaze, Satellite and cable operators approached them about carrying the network, not the other way around. If they are successful in getting distribution on other Cable and satellite operators, the revenue and viewers will be significant.

That's what they said about Fox News, which has turned into a juggernaut.
