The channel lineups probably won't change for a while.
They didn't when Sirius & XM merged.
If you're referring to the occasional short-term loss of channels, it looks like someone else has seen the need for a strong negotiating stance.
He continued: "I don’t like it, but when necessary, we’ll do whatever it takes. In the case of Fox. In the case of Sunbeam. In the case of Tribune. If we have to go dark, we’ll go dark. We’ll do the right thing for the long-term benefit of our consumers.”
"He" in this case is DirecTV CEO Mike White.
OK wheres your link so we can read it?
Never mind, Found it, and big deal, the whole ordeal was over in less then 5 days,and they are back on as we speak.
Where is Gol MSG,MSG+ SNY,VOOM,ESPNNews HD, Disney DX HD, Disney Channel HD, ABC Family HD,Sundance and many others a quick search would reveal.
u must be dreaming again:nono:
dish has a real WHOLE HOME DVR SYSTEM.directv has a WANNA BE WHOLE HOME DVR SYSTEM
Yea cause everyone should have a Whole Home DVR that only records 6 things on 5 networks for only 3 hours.
While interrupting everyone elses programming in the house.:lol:
Oh wait but I can get 2, yea depending on what kind of mood the Dish CSR's are in.:hurah:
Never going to happen! For people with only satellite as their TV supplier (which is a fairly large number), a merger would create a monopoly.
As a consumer I wouldn't want this either. Less competition = Less Quality, Less Selection, etc.
Not even worth the discussion!
gotta agree here.........been with dish for over 10 years, but getting tired on having a channel 1 day & gone the next
That's pretty much the same premise used as an argument against the merger of Sirius and XM.
The rural argument is really the only thing now.
There is more competition in the video marketplace today than there was when it was last broached for the majority of Americans.
There are pros and cons and before I think there were more cons but it's getting to be more pros. Having 34 million customers gives you some pretty big muscle room at the negotiating table.
Don't feed the troll
The only argument that makes sense to me is that we have a duplication of programming on satellite, and satellite space is extremely limited.
What I'd like to see is a satellite sharing agreement, while the two companies remained separate on the ground. There's no reason to send two copies of every channel up there and take up valuable space that could be better used for other purposes. But there is also no reason the companies can't stay separate on the ground.
Sorry , I was going to let it go too!
Sorry for the snap!
The only thing that will happen, with a merger, is higher prices. Less competition, higher prices.
And the results, as I experience Sirius in a limited way (car trial basis), are pretty miserable. The audio bits are starved! And that's all there is, to point out the obvious.
I think a lot of folks would care a lot more about the future of their TV content than they did over sat radio. I sure do!
Yes, but I bet the FCC would have to initiate it. What are the chances?
if i am a troll what are you? a troll
No he's not a troll by any stretch.
And please use normal English sentence formation. Much easier to read, trolling or not.:hurah:
Coach: "Are you just ignorant, or merely apathetic?"
Player: "Coach, I don't know, and I don't care."
How about if nobody trolls or calls anyone else a troll so this thread can stay open?
There is nothing to keep the thread open.
Only trolls would be interesting to keep it open.
