They are violating so many of their original beliefs, statements it not even funny! first of all, what happened to CHRISTIAN? They keep losing Christian stations and adding secular?! Familyland is talking of leaving too!
They were supposed to be a ministry, not a business concerned with making a profit. for someone who is losing $ they have sure been investing in property (fl and tn)
furthermore they stated that lifetime subscribers would have all future channels included at no extra charge (which they have hnored over the past 10 yrs or so). Now they have added channels(for over a year) they want to take away unless we now pay for them. not even all subscribers though, just the lifetimers!
someone didn't do their job properly if they didn't realize how much it would cost them in advance.
they are REFUSING to let monthly subscribers drop the "special 4". they are also not planning to charge them $4.99 therefore there really is no basic/special tier as they are implying.
Where did you hear about Familyland leaving SA? They are the reason I bought a lifetime subscription to begin with.
I have no problem with SA putting the 4 secular channels "in the red" since I get most of them in my AT-200 pack (especially now that Hallmark Channel has been moved down to AT-200). I was not impressed with HMC - too many commercials and the movies were far from blockbusters.
I do remember the Bob Jones home schooling channels being in the red when I first purchsed SA lifetime.
SA needs to allow monthly subs to drop the secular 4 since they are doing it for us lifetimers.
I found it odd that they wanted our smart card numbers. Mine has changed numerous times due to 921 failures. E* has handled the changeovers which included the SA service. Does this mean in the future I have to call SA whenever I change receivers?
