... but the excuse that "something went wrong" when we were allowed to keep our "free" preview for as long as we have is B.S.
You may not like the truth ... but not liking the truth does not change the truth.
Now that I learned DISH Network wasn't negotiating for me ...
DISH was negotiating for you. You lost. Sorry. Perhaps if AMC would have agreed to a lower rate or different placement you could still have the channel. Not all negotiations are won.
I ASKED and was REASSURED by a representative AT THE POINT OF CHANGING MY SERVICE, that AMC was is my channel lineup.
When was that? Lets look at your other post:
I called DISH to cancel my higher level subscription 3-4 years ago, and they talked me into staying with the Welcome Package, because it had the 3 channels I watch--one of which is AMC.
At the time you signed up for the Welcome Pack AMC was included. All packages are subject to change.
The programming I've been paying for didn't just slip past me or otherwise slip my mind--unless, of course, the rep I originally spoke with was totally wrong and AMC just coincidentally ended up in my package all these years by accident... Really?
You were paying for AMC until all customers lost the channel in the dispute. You were not paying for AMC when it was returned (in free preview mode). You were not paying for AMC during the mistake period between the end of the free preview and when the channel was turned off for Welcome Pack subscribers.
You subscribe to a package. It contains channels. The channels each package contains are not guaranteed.
