does anyone know if they are even still talking or did they give up?
I read on another forum that Fisher and E* have actually come to an agreement on the carry fee for the primary channel in each market. It’s the Fisher lawsuit over what Fisher thinks is due them in the past for carrying the other channels no one watches that is delaying a final resolution. Back to my previous post.
OK, so this is weird. Program guide info just started showing up for a couple of shows this evening on KOMO. Their web site says E* is still locked out.
Every week this shows up and then goes away.
According to Fisher Dish Network has not responded to their attempts at negotiations. My belief is that this means that Fisher's demands are so far outside the parameters of reasonable that there is no point in even distinguishing their ridiculous offers with a response.
Is the CEO of Fisher accountable to anyone? If she screws up royally and costs Fisher millions going foward who does she have to face? No one probably.
Yeah, a Board of Directors. Just a guess, but I suspect they're on board. This isn't the kind of thing a CEO would do on a whim.
She's done it.
Go to http://www.hulu.com. They have hundreds of TV shows some entire series from the 50's through today. I don't watch Lost but I'm sure they have it.
Nothing is cutting it. I still get to watch Lost in SD on the tube TV ( the cable company forget to disconnet the thing when I cancelled them)
The show is a far cry from when I got to watch it on a 50 plasma. Its was stunning in HD. The first few weeks I didnt think much of this Fisher-Dish war but now thats it affects the only show I enjoy it has crushed my TV season.
I seriously thought it was going to be a 1 or 2 week battle.
Why God Why?
The best website to watch "Lost" is abc.com. HQ picture and all episodes.
More and more time goes by and still no Dish/Fisher agreement. Fisher's VP tells me twice they've had a deal with Dish, only to get a call later from a higher source at Dish telling them "NO."
My personal belief is that this is ridiculous. For almost 2 months now we have not had ABC programming on Dish and Dish appears to be doing little to correct that. I am loosing faith and each month my remaining contract term is falling and falling. According to Dish my contract runs out in May; that time is fast approaching and bye bye Dish. Unless Charlie Ergen figures this all out I will be one of those goners. And you know what? It is all solvable. The technology is fine, the quality is fine. It is just the arrogance of Charlie Ergen.....
What about the arrogance of Fisher ?
Dish could update their loop on the ABC channel to give us more info.
True, that loop is from 12/28...almost a month and a half old. This situation is so stupid I can't even believe it.
The reason it's at a stalemate is because there's a lawsuit in the Oregon courts right now for breach of contract.
people get really up in arms over this stuff eh?
just out of curiosity, has D* ever been in this situation before? i cant imagine that this only happens to E*, but i am willing to accept that charlie is just stubborn which is why this issue tends to pop up on an annual basis XD
It happens to D* also, just not usually as publicly.

I'm not sure if Fisher knows that in today's world. Any income is better than zip, nada, nothing.
No one disputes that.
But as a customer I expect that the two parties negotiate in good faith and stop acting like children.
