Hi James won't you find strange that they would not anounce that on the chan in question?

instead thay have an anouncement like this;

 

 

Due to unexpected events,Dish is no longer able to air this chan.
We are currently working hard to bring you other exiting chanels,
and apologize for any inconvenience.

If that message is on the channel (either 9815 or 603-04, depending on your receiver) it seems that DISH did announce their loss of the channel on the channel in question.

It isn't DISH's responsibility to find subscribers another method of receiving a channel they no longer carry.

SportTV America's website doesn't seem to offer much more insight other than to say "For Reasons Exclusively imputable to RTP - USA Inc. dba SPT, SPORT TV Portugal SA has been forced to, 

on 06/05/2013, restrain the access to the respective signal."

 

Maybe they didn't have proper rights to air the programming in the US/Canada?

Boa tarde,

Agradecemos desde já o facto de nos ter contactado com o seu comentário e opinião. 

Informamos que o canal SPORT.TV Américas não está a ser distribuído nos EUA e Canadá uma vez que a empresa que detém os direitos de transmissão do canal para este território (SPT) não está a cumprir as suas obrigações legais com a SPORT TV. Devido a este facto, a SPORT TV está neste momento a procurar novas soluções que permitam chegar novamente a todo o território norte-americano.

Ficamos ao seu dispor para qualquer esclarecimento adicional.

That's their standard reply.  RTP does NOT have the rights.  trust me.

 

That line on their web site that mentions Rtp USA is Seabra in New jerseys company.  The company who was transmiting the channel to dish from olivedesports in portugal.

Benfica tv is gone also but dish doesnt say anything about it to their customers (posting something on a website doesnt count) and keeps charging everybody the same amount of money.

yup.  and look for benfica tv and sportv americas to come back, but it won't be included in luso pack.  I suspect they will be set as premium channels.

Reality is that SportTV should never be involved with SPT (Seabras Portuguese Television). Several years ago SPT had a similar problem with RTP when they launched their International channel. Then RTPi went to Dish on their own.

 

I was very surprised when they got Sport TV. I knew that eventually the same thing was going to happen. SPT has no money and no one watches that horrible channel. Other than some people in Newark, NJ no one else cares about SPT. The channel is just garbage.

 

I really would love to have SportTV, but never signed up because of the connection with the Seabras channel. SportTV should try to get on Dish by themselves, or at least with RTPi. Stay away from SPT, Benfica TV and all the other crap in the Dish package.

actually SPT has money, but he's just greedy and looking to make more money.  So is Joaquim oliviera from sportv and they're all greedy and looking to make as much money aspossible.

Also, RTPi is still broadcasted through SPT.  On dish and on FTA.  Hense why you see all the NJ commercials from the U.S..

 

I really do hope we get sportv amercias back and hopeully with not involving SPT.
