    I respect your opinions and beliefs, but for me I see Mr.Beck in a different light....and I did watch his Fox show at 2pm PST. Now I watch Wolf and sometimes the Five... which is GB light.
    Say what you want about Beck's politics, but he can be really funny.

    I wonder if 212 comes with anti-psychotic medication delivered to your home or if you need to have it prescribed by your shrink.

    As a GBTV/BLAZETV subscriber, I'm jealous that it's possibly coming to DISH before Directv.

    Also, what happened to keeping politics out of the forum? Is anyone policing this side?

    Reminder... questions about moderation (or perceived lack thereof) should be directed in private... if you think there is an unattended problem, report a post or contact a moderator.

    With regards to politics and this thread... it would be impossible to discuss the channel without acknowledging who the channel is about...and so far I haven't seen anyone go too far or any arguments or insults of forum members.

    Stay on topic and within the rules and all will be well.

    I saw Glenn Beck once, after South Park spoofed him.

    And all I could think of was, A Face in the Crowd.

    I think you'd already have to be on something to subscribe. But then I feel the same way about listening to Rap and watching ESPN.

    If 212 actually does turn out to be Blaze TV, I suspect it will be included at a certain package level or higher, perhaps AT250 or higher. Or maybe BB. If it was a premium channel, wouldn't it be in the 300 range?

    I'll watch.... if it's free, I watched GB on Fox when I could. I never bought into his ideology, but he was, at times, very entertaining.
    GB could have a Vegas act, late night guest slot, maybe a show, or even a sitcom....and I imagine he would get less negatives.....Say what you want about his views on politics, he's a showman first and foremost, add some beautiful women and he could have a hit.

    The Blase TV is more than just Glenn's old FNC show. He invested in a large staff to produce programming like comedy and kids shows. That's a large investment for a network that as of today can only be seen if you have a Roku and a decent broadband connection. Decent broadband bandwidth is not universally available just yet, so satellite is still the way to go.

    When he was on CNN you found out much more about his road traveled....now he is a caricature of hisself.....It is sad!

    I think very much, he is drinking again, I dont wish that on anyone!

    Yep.. It would be easy to do a linear channel schedule in four, six hour blocks per day; Beck's three hour radio show, the radio show fourth hour with Beck's side kicks, the signature one hour Glenn Beck TV show and the one hour "Real News From The Blaze". They also produce a daily kids show and weekly reality and comedy programming and Beck is hinting that he has an upcoming show modeled after "Glee". Plus all the documentaries and special events.

    As good as Roku is, it's not a particularly good DVR and even with adequate bandwidth, there can be annoying 'glitches' in the streaming. He needs more than the 300,000 or so viewers he currently gets on the internet.

    Don't say that. That's how rumors start. I don't believe for one minute that he is drinking again. He just had a successful event in Dallas. He couldn't pull events like that off if he was not firmly in control of himself and his staff.

    Granted some of his comedy bits on his radio show go off the deep end at times (I wish he could hear how that sounds from the listener's perspective). But for the most part he is still on the money.

    Well.....If you watched him on CNN he was normal !!!! Not this wacky person who started at FOX and the advertisers said enough...

    He was good on CNN....now a sad joke of a man!

    Drugs or drinking, can only be the excuse!

    Great...
    Can't believe there isn't better choices out there.

    Yes, I respect freedom of speech,[ to another poster who likes this guy] I just don't want to pay for it.[not his version, at any rate] I just hope dish is going to charge extra for this. The response should tell the story.

    please don't add it to my 250 package as a substitute channel. I already have syfy.:nono2:
