    I didn't expect this to happen over the weekend, thus I wasn't checking the forums.

    Now I've missed the first two TWD eps.

    Does anyone know if AMC will be rebroadcasting the first two again?

    (feel free to PM me)

    I also sent you a PM as well.

    Now what we need is a Season 5 Breaking Bad marathon.

    So does this mean that Dish still won't have any MSG channels or that they just haven't been mentioned yet as part of this settlement? I've only been with Dish a few years so don't think I ever had them and I don't know the history of how and why they went away. Maybe someone could enlighten me or steer me to someplace that spells it out when they get a few.

    Dish sure is getting a lot of non satellite spectrum, Was it ever mentioned what they plan to use it for, beyond that they were going to use it for Blockbuster?

    Thanks

    Dish put plans on hold for internet tv and for streaming. Dish wanted streaming in order to compete against Netflix and Red Box. Hopefully, the plans can get back on track.

    I'm happy that I'll be able to watch Sundance Channel in HD in November!

    Well after 1922 posts on the old Dish/AMC thread, a lot of us are probably glad we are not betting people. Not many of us called this result this quick.

    DANG, my DVRs are going to be doing double time to catch all of the shows that they will be catching us up on.

    Hard to fathom the 700 million payment but it looks like it was a give and take negotiation that resulted in both sides getting a lot.

    I don't watch any of the channels involved so I didn't miss them. A lot of you, however, did watch and like them and for you I'm glad they're back.

    Count me in for that one. Kinda crazy. I would prefer MSG back, and in HD too while they're at it.

    Wow. And it'll be back in AT120: "After the free preview, AMC will be available in our Top 120 package and higher. AMC can be found on channel 131."

    Where does it say that? I have been looking for info on which packages it would be on and if it would be dropping back to at120 but none of the official releases that I have seen commented on which packages it would be on.
