    Count me as part of this 'mass exodus' for I left E* a week ago and went crawling back to Comcast. The real reason was because of the price, but like marketinghelp said, CourtTV is on this system. So even though I'm now on cable, the debate is still entertaining.

    It's a little hairy, that even if Dish Network said that's o.k. Then the 13% should like Judge Judy. Atleast there's court room viewing. CourtTV will be back, but they must realize, there not worth as much as ESPN. I am sure this will happen. Lifetime, felt the pain. Since the pain has been felt, Lifetime came back. Let CourtTV feel the pain..

    I can assure you there will be no mass exodus. Being a retailer, I have a lot of contact with the public. I've had a booth at every show at our local convention center since the beginning of the year. There have been 3-4 shows to date. NOT ONE PERSON HAS COME UP TO COMPLAIN ABOUT COURT TV! Not one. No one cares. Even when we tell prospective new customers that there is a current dispute with Court TV and it is not available, there is no concern on their part.

    NOW, when DISH had a spat with Lifetime. That was a different story. Last year we had a bunch of women complain that they wanted Lifetime, but they understood what was going on and that DISH was working on keeping costs down. The attitude at that time was "hurry up and hammer out an agreement already". The Lifetime viewers were much more vocal.

    I think it has to come down to this... how many episodes of COPS can any one person stand, anyway?

    Some stations aren't worth having and apparently this is one of them. I think most people AT 60 customers would rather have the Biography channel anyway!

    I rather enjoy CourtTV, I like their forensic shows and those stupid criminals caught on tape shows. Do I miss CourtTV? Yes. But will I dump Dish Network just because of that? No. CourtTV is a nice channel to have but it's not a deal breaker.

    Since Hbo(time warner) and Dish have settled their conflicts it looks like soon we will get both Court tv and maybe Cinemax HD too.

    "EchoStar Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH) and Home Box Office today announced that they have entered into a long-term agreement that provides for the distribution of HBO and Cinemax television services on EchoStar's DISH Network(TM)."

    Seems like a deal that "provides for the distribution of HBO and Cinemax television services", not one directed at providing the distribution of CourtTV.

    I see it more as a suggestion than proof. If Dish & Time Warner can get friendly enough to make a "long-term" deal over HBO/Cinemax, then maybe they can also work out terms on Court TV. I find it suggestive that Dish hasn't added that replacement channel yet even after Groundhog Day.

    That is why I believe they will now work a deal for Court tv also. Otherwise Charlie would of replaced that channel by now.

    They were also supposed to add muzak to AT 100. I "think" there may some sort of uplink trouble related to the guide data

    The muzak channels are now available on AT100. I've seen several posts and received quite a few e-mails about it.

    See ya

    I have both Dish and D-TV, and we DO watch Court TV. Because of that and the <now resolved apparently> fuss with HBO, we bumped our Dish package down to the Dish 60, and bumped up the D-TV one. What bugs me a bit, is that in the lineup it still shows as Court TV, which may mislead people who aren't regular watchers and don't follow news such as this.
