    Why is Charlie cheap? LifeTime is the one who wanted more money! Why there isn't more anger directed towards Lifetime is beyond me.

    There are two sides to this story, and all we ever got from either one was spin. Personally, I don't have a dog in this fight because we never watch LifeTime or any of it's spinnoffs. I just have a feeling that there is plenty of blame to be shared between both parties.

    Read the thread as a whole. there was far more anger directed at Lifetime than E*. Personally I seea slew of confliciting press releases and and suspect that neither side is leveling with us.

    Of course we'll never know the whole story but one thing I don't think that can be disputed is that Dish made the appearance of handling the situation a whole lot better. They maintained the appearance of being the one in the dispute that was willing to be open and honest about the negotiations (yeah yeah I know just good "spin" on their part) while Lifetime's response seem to be akin to "guerilla tactics".

    I agree totally that DISH spent time trying to appear to be more reasonable. But that does not mean that they actually were more reasonable at the table. But I think that far too many see it as a virtual fight between good and evil and have swallowed one side (Usually but not always DISH's side) as the whole truth.

    Maybe they should put both channels on the America's Family Basic Teir.

    Apparently, Oxygen has moved from 110 to 119? I noticed today that I am receiving it now.

    Per TNGTony and his sources, Oxygen moved to 119° on March 28th.

    So Dish is NOT adding the 3rd Lifetime channel?
    The wife keeps asking


    I figure they would after all that contract stuff they worked through.

    LIFETIME REAL WOMEN CHANNEL

    Yeah right! Great "family values" can be found on these channels. When Oxygen first went on E* I read some of the program descriptions :eek2: The descriptions alone should have qualified Oxygen for inclusion in the "adult lock" area of the program guide.

    I guess programing catering to women cannot be considered "family friendly". :lol: Sheesh.

    I'm referring to programs by/for/about a small portion of the female population (the portion that have nothing to do with men IYKWIM).
