    Sorry if this has been posted before, but I know Direct TV has it but Im a Dish customer , does anyone have any inside info if we are getting it?

    when I contact Dish Cust.svc I just get the usual forwarding to programming etc.

    Cheers !

    Some of us that have contacted Setanta were told that they offered Dish Setanta Sports at the same time the offered it to DirecTV. According to Setanta, Dish got all upset that they couldn't have exclusive rights to it like they originally had when they got the English-language version of GolTV and told Setanta to forget it. Quoting Setanta "Dish Network is in a war with DirecTV."

    With the loss of channels like OLN and the Lifetime channels and Dish's emphasis on HD, I'd say Setanta Sports is not even being considered in the near term or in the distant future.
