You're kidding, right? You don't "feel bad" for multi-million dollar companies but you sure seem to be picking one multi-million (FOX in this case) to feel sorry for! You do know that any price increase due to FOX or other channel providers asking for more will just be passed on directly to you by Dish... so while Dish might increase prices for other reasons, there is 100% chance they will increase due to a channel increase. I watch lots of sports, and I would miss channels if they go away... but I also don't want to keep paying more and more especially these days when I can afford less and less. I like that Dish tries sometimes to stand up and keep the cost of the channels down. Whereas you seem to be cheering for the inevitable price increase to follow.
