    about time, i cant understand why people have dish network, they have the crappiest channels and the pay for each package is stupid.


    they got rid of ESpnews and a few other HD only because they cant resign with those networks without rasining the bill.

    dish network's best move should be to file bankruptcy.

    Yep ... thousands of posts in the DirecTV forum requesting this channel and another dozen or so channels that DISH has and DirecTV doesn't.
    That and the generally lower cost is likely the reason DISH keeps customers.

    The last full year was better for DISH ... which is why they claim to be the fastest growing provider. But we've had threads to discuss that ...

    AMC in HD.:joy:

    Assuming it will be showing in my guide tomorrow, this is like daddy Charlie came home from a trip with that present I'd been hoping for but never thought I'd get. After all, this is a Rainbow Media channel. We're in a lawsuit with Rainbow Media. Or did it get settled when nobody was watching?

    Now for our local PBS and The CW channels....

    (Yeah, I'm never satisfied with just one present.:sure:)

    Yes, his/her trolling skills are sorely lacking. Right up there with the spelling ability! :)

    I'm happy for you! But how did come about? I wasn't expecting to see anything in Rainbow HD.

    Well, I guess I would have to say that it will always be a good thing when another channel is added to our packages in HD. Sadly though, I can remember when AMC was about American Movie Classics, and not All Mostly Commercials.

    Not so much that I object to channels having to pay the bills with advertising. I truly realise that broadcasting is expensive, and these folks have to get their financial support from somewhere. But the breaks, during movies, are relentless.

    When AMC first took on commericial advertising, they said their viewership went up. I have to say, that with that move, and the change in their definition of classic films, we have rarely come back to tune in to AMC.

    Thank goodness for Turner Classic Movies, where at least so far, they continue to offer truly classic films, without commercials.

    This move is a good thing for D* subs, as it will be an incentive for D* to add it. (did not mean insensitive )

    Does watching D* make you forget how to spell, or do you have to be a bad speller to watch D*? Curious minds want to know!! :D

    I'm tickled pink to see AMC added sometime today. Hopefully this will mean more HD from Rainbow and maybe MSG in the near future.
