    I certainly do. Anything that hurts both sides so they'll think twice about this kind of crap in the future is welcome.

    It wasn't the indians, it was Custer's arrogance that did him in.

    Apparently Murdoch hasn't realized that yet.

    Yep, Custer's ego wrote a check his body couldn't cash. Unfortunately, he took a good number of good men with him...

    I have not heard the Monday rumors, however I would agree that if either side is removing all the feud comments, that is a good sign!

    I just thought of a question regarding Fox O&Os. I was wondering if the government could require a station not be blocked under Homeland Security rules about keeping the public informed. Then I began to wonder if Fox O&Os even run local news at all. ABC, NBC & CBS might be required to stay available, but Fox might not be if they don't normally run local news.

    But then the question came to mind. Fox only runs a few hours in the evening of actual Fox programming. The rest of the day is usually filled with syndicated talk shows, game shows, reruns, paid programming, religious programming and so on. What happens there? Is Fox still paying those syndicators and charging infomercial sponsors even though they're witholding programming? I know they're still on OTA, but we've seen the numbers so far showing decreases in viewership in NY which will only continue to drop next week if Fox witholds programming nationwide from Dish.

    It is because Fox News carriage agreement is under a different contract than FX, NatGeo, FSNs, and local Fox networks. And local Fox networks are under a different carriage agreement than the other mentioned.

    Plus, Fox news is not only the most watched cable news channel, it is also one of the most watched cable channels period

    My first post was prior to me reading it from Scott as I got the info from someone else. But yes, you are correct. Scott said so prior to me posting this and I did hear it from him as well

    Okay, so the O & O stations will probably not get pulled by Fox. But what about FX, NatGeo and RSNs? I haven't seen anything about them coming back. And the only thing I watch from Fox is on FX.

    I guess they decided they had lost enough subs. On to the next dispute...

    According to Variety's article this morning this is an agreement on the broadcast station retransmission. The way it's written implies that it may not involve the cable channels though it isn't clear. All I know is that my FX isn't back on yet.

    Hmmm. That would imply that there are no retroactive payments back to October 1.

    Absolutely correct! At least one Belo station (KVUE Austin) has posted an expected Dish shutoff notice on its website.

    Maybe Dish didn't want to fight both Fox and Belo at once!:rolleyes:

    You can do the same thing with HULU. I'm not a Comcast customer, & I tried to sign on for fun. No go.
