    i asked dish last night if they would get hbo and cinemax back and the rep just said they didn't know if they would ever get those channels back!!! though if att wants dish to pay for a certain subs and people are not subscribing to it then yes i think that's BS to. why should dish have to pay if people are not subscribing to programming

    Any programmer can demand anything they want as they own or control the content. AT&T now owns Direct TV. Don't think Direct TV would like to hurt Dish, so Direct would get more subs? Big business is cut throat. I did not go to Direct TV when Dish lost the channel. I subbed to the streaming service direct from HBO.

    Same here. I've subscribed to HBO Now until Dish gets HBO back in the lineup.

    I guess we will find out when we get it back..... The streaming service works find for me. I have HBO on Demand on the Roku and the channels are on Demand plus Live on the Fire Stick. So that works for me. There is nosavings in buying HBO through Dish directly, the same cost $15.
