    One would think if these channels are not back by the time NBA starts, Dish would let me cancel without any early termination fees, since:

    1. I was told by a manager this would not happen when I signed up
    2. I'm not getting the channels I am paying for

    Granted, I've heard Dish is a POS when it comes to this, but they are going to be hearing from one irate MFer if this is not resolved by late October. I don't like missing my games and I HATE being lied to.

    :lol:Better read the TOS. I bet they have the same statement most providers have about being able to change programming at any time.

    As said the TOS has got you. MAYBE you'd have a chance if that manager put that in writing but a verbal is worth nothing.

    Yep for FX, this isn't the time to start playing hard ball. Little on it that is compelling although I do like Son of A. and Terriers. I can watch them on the computer though, so that isn't a huge loss.

    As to the RSN's. If Fox wants to increase the price, then Dish should let them, BUT put them in a sports package and let those that don't mind their bill increasing because of them pay for it. I don't care if any RSN is on, so I sure don't want to pay an increase to have them.

    Yea, but the way Charlie's been dropping channels lately Dish may be catching up to DirecTV in what they don't have. Just sayin';)

    I seem to recall a few (tons) of E* customers that were happy when we D* customers lost the Vs channel and could not rub it in our face enough. I think this is way more serious then that. Now that being said I dont agree with a 50% increase either but I also am suprised that E* was not able to come to some terms. I will guess that it gets resolved before they lose FOX lol. I cant imagine a Sunday during NFL season that all E* customers have not FOX NFL games.

    Dish hasn't lost any local Fox channels yet, that drop dead date is 11/1/10 for that agreement.

    Are you sure it's not the HD Net Movies feed?

    No need to reboot ... just look for the logo in the corner or read posts made during the 3am hour ET this morning.

    FX and NatGeo have been replaced by HDNet Movies and HD Theater, respectively.


    Sony Movie Channel on 386 looks good.

    Or take in the remaining games the old-fashioned way, on the radio; exactly what I plan to do. The Saturday game "will' be on Fox 5 here in Atlanta.

    You are right - it is the HD Net Movies feed. My apologies.

    RSN's are more expensive than regular channels, ~$2-$3 or more in region, however, typically pennies for out of region viewers...

    Just got off the phone with Dish. I asked about NHL CI, the rep put me on hold and after talking with her super said that CI will NOT be affected as these are, according to her, the same as buying a pay-per-view movie. If you pay for the package, you get the content regardless of the dispute. Time will tell.
