    Good grief. I'm on Directv but that warning popped up on my Fox channel during the football game. Does someone at Dish get a bonus for every channel dispute?

    Fortunately DISH didn't need their site for the other recently resolved disputes ... they could convert it for use for this issue.

    Fox news has had "keepfoxnews.com" since June 2012 ... so it looks like this is not their first rodeo either.

    Personally I could care less about any news channels. I get plenty of them as it is. Add to that the zillion of them I get on the Roku, including Fox News and Fox Business News. For those who have high speed internet, get a Roku.

    If you are getting Fox News Channel and Fox Business live for free on the Roku it's a pirated stream. Their official Roku app only has Fox News Radio, the hour long FoxNews.com live webcast, and various clips. The only officially sanctioned live streams of their channels require a login with a participating provider.

    From Dish:

    DISH is nearing the end of its contract with FOX News Networks LLC., the owner of FOX News and FOX Business Network.

    DISH promises its customers the best programming, and we work hard to do so at a fair value. We are unsure why FOX News Networks LLC. decided to involve customers in the contract negotiation process at a point when there is time to reach a mutually beneficial deal.

    DISH is actively working to reach a deal before the contract expires and has successfully negotiated agreements representing hundreds of stations in recent months that benefit all parties, including our viewers.

    Surely, FOX would not pull the most watched news channel from 14 million potential viewers, or would they?

    I wonder is FOX will spread this to their other owned or partially owned channels? Some folks are still reeling from the FOX Sports 1 issue in early September

    It is getting to the point they we are seeing program carriage dispute of the week.

    I wonder how long cable, satellite companies and providers are going to play this game, before the subscribers just go away in disgust?

    Well, if you hang out on a satelite TV forum. On the other hand, the last one I can recall that actually had a noticeable impact on our TV viewing was in early 2009.

    definitely wouldn't miss it if it were gone. It's no more a news channel than MSNBC anyway, so...

    Rupert Murdock would not want anyone to miss the lies and crap they put out on Fraud News, so it will not last long.

    Well, we knew FOX would be up for renewal eventually... and expect not only FOX News but FOX Sports to be part of the negotiations. I can't see why FOX wouldn't want to get in on whatever ABC and CBS have already gotten.

    NBC will come up eventually too.

    Dispute of the month. Or the week. I don't watch much cable news so this doesn't affect me but I'm still tired of it.

    What angers me the most are the pissing matches between the parties. Messages scrolling across the screen spreading the propaganda from either side. Interrupting viewing on other channels.

    Negotiate your billion dollar deals so your executives can all get their huge salaries and bonuses and leave us out of it. And then I'll look forward to my January price increase.

    ALL of these Contract Disputes are a Setup to enable Phony "EYEBALL" Counts - in the form of Phony Outrage for both sides - internet count clickers are recorded by ad banners asking for support on both sides -

    I could read both sides press release but I am sure they say the same stuff as the ones from the last dispute and the one before that and so on........

    Apparantly the deadline is Friday:

    So if a 5 day warning is too soon to notify viewers, when should they be alerted? After they're pulled like what happened with Turner? Most renewals are completed without anyone knowing until after the fact when a press release is issued or it's mentioned in a small blurb in their quarterly report. However if there's less than a week left and they're not close to a deal or extension, viewers should be alerted so they can make alternate arrangements. (i.e for things like Cartoon Network/Adult Swim find a friend who will let you watch the new episode of a show at their house, for CSN find a local sports bar to see the game, etc)
