    A typical attempt to discredit those who disagree with you, and a weak one. But that's okay, I've said my $2.00 worth. Good luck with D* dude.

    Nor do they carry March Mega Madness IMO is the best value sports package out there. Can't get that one on cable.

    Not only is Charlie cheap but he is also Charlie is anti-NY/NJ. This is why Yes will NEVER see the light of day on his precious Dish Network.

    John, I kinda disagree, but I understand your sentiment. I think he made a business decision which he thought was best overall for E*, not because he has a vendetta against NY/NJ subs. I just think it was just a short sighted decision.

    I was searching Dish Network's website for something else and came upon this URL in the search results. It is a letter to the YES Network asking for their assistance in getting YES to Dish's customers. You can see that Dish is making an attempt at a good-faith negotiation.

    uh.....11 months old.....AND seems weird that no mention of including them in a package is included (AT150, NY locals, AT100, etc.).

    Where is the effort now for the 203 season?

    Yes, the original date of the letter is 11 months old. The search results at Dish indicated it was last modified in November of last year. The point I guess I was trying to make is that there _was_ a concerted effort on the part of Dish, on behalf of it's customers, to carry this channel. I think there are a lot of folks "out there" that are trying to accuse Dish (e.g. Charlie Ergen) of stalling or trying to "screw" Yankees sports fans. This letter tends to indicate otherwise, and gives a hint that it might be the YES network with which any anger should be registered.

    You're taking this out of context. The rest of the letter asking for a la carte carriage of YES would be totally unacceptable to YES. Once you start a trend like this with one carrier, every cable company will demand the same deal. Next it will be another channel forced into this kind of arrangement and so on. There are channels on Dish which I may never watch. I'm sure their added cost will be more than YES, but I'm satisfied they are on for those who enjoy them, and who knows, some day I may put one of them on and actually enjoy the programming. One example, my wife loves Lifetime Movie Network. I never even dreamed of watching anything on that channel, but I actually sat down with her and watched a couple of very good movies. By the way, she has watched a couple of baseball and basketball games with me. She actually enjoyed them, and she claims she doesn't like sports. That's the upside of variety on satellite tv.

    That sounds like the same deal cablevision was offering YES. Dish knew that there was no way YES would accept that deal. The only reason they wrote that letter is to prove to the customers that they made some type effort to get YES.

    Bullcrap Charlie! Put YES on AT100!
