This channel is no longer available, contract negotiations the apparent reason.  Hope to see this channel back but knowing Dish's track record w/ Sports channels, not much hope on this one.

The slate on the channel suggests visiting http://www.DISHSportsValue.com/

"SportsTime Ohio is demanding an unreasonable rate increase to carry this channel. We are working around the clock to reach a fair and reasonable agreement with SportsTime Ohio."


I do not see a mention of the outage on the SportsTime Ohio website:

The major draw for this channel is the Cleveland Indians.  This could at least drag out until close to opening day.

Lets hope not.

 

Another channel lost, yet there are more shopping and "Info" channels popping up.

 

An extra 5$ this year for what?

Don't mix apples and oranges.  Shopping and Info channels are paying to be there.

 

I don't like price increases either... but everyone demands their favorite channel not get dropped during disputes, then gets surprised when the bills go up the next February.  We go up $5 because channels you didn't want Dish to drop weren't dropped... and because everyone who works there want raises too.

Could be interesting if you're an avid Indians fan who like shows about the Coast Guard and gold prospecting and live where you can't get cable.

What's odd about this dispute is that there is no current major league games scheduled on this RSN until baseball's opening day.  Last year this channel was bought out by Fox Sports who operates FSN Ohio which is still on the air on E* carrying The Cav's games as usual.  Before STO, both the Indians and Cavs were on FSN Ohio.  Now that STO is under the FSN Ohio you would think that both RSN's would be together in the dispute (not that I'm wishing it).  This came out of the blue and I bet few will notice it unless it drags out until opening day.

The Cleveland Indians are the only pro sports team on the RSN.  The team used to own the network until last year.

The contract could be extended until FSN Ohio expires ... but it expired now. And terms to continue have not been agreed.

Isn't the rsn's figured into the bill? Seems I saw that when someone posted channel costs during the AMC dispute.

 

So, If I lose Ohio, and gain more shopping channels, I should be OK with that?

 

Just cause shopping and info pay to be there doesn't make me warm and fuzzy.

 

By the way, what channels were going to be dropped causing the increase? I haven't been paying real close attention, I'm afraid.

All channel costs are figured into the bill. But with programming costs for DISH increasing every year I would not expect to see customer bills reduced.

They never are, James.

 

OK, not the end of the world, but it just seems when you lose one, [channel] it shouldn't stay empty or worse, be replaced with a info channel about  useless products. [ No, I don't need more hair]

 

I see more and more channels reverting to old shows [not all bad, Miami vice and Magnum pi still quite watchable] which is still better than the jewelry channel [ really? anyone tell these people we are in a recession?]  or countless others hawking stuff 99% of us would never buy? [ need to save money for the next increase anyway, :bang

Yes, once the Indians start playing this is going to get a lot more publicity.

 

During football season I watch this channel for some HS games and for Browns coverage.

 

A few more disputes like this and a few more rate hikes and I just might get pushed to the point of going to TV via my own hardware and OTA/internet.  If it wasn't for live HD sports I might have done so already.

I still have my huge outdoor antenna, more outrageous increases and it will go up on the roof, like some of us sports is what's keeping me from doing that.

Do not settle please. That's how our bills got to where they are now. Everyone settled, settled meaning we pay more.

We are always paying more, even dish says they are victorious are on a settlement. My bill went from 100 to 152 dollars, in the last 10 years. With minimum wage at from 7.75 to 10, its going to cost even more next year.

I take it you are not a sports fan (or at least not a Cleveland Indians fan). 

 

What E* should do is make a sports free tier for those who want a cheaper bill.
