Separate names with a comma.
Discussion in 'General DISH™ Discussion' started by Link, Mar 9, 2004.
Why are TV Land, CMT, and Spike TV still on the air but the other Viacoms are shut off?
They have a seperate contract that is not up for renewal now.
Any idea when that contract is up.
If it is anytime soon, I bet we could kiss those channels goodbye.
Next year, at least.
Viacom wanted to renegotiate those channels too and include them in the bundle with the 10 pulled channels, all Viacom broadcast channels, and additional channels. E* wanted to keep the stations unbundled, allowing them to drop or not carry less popular cable channels.
I'd say TV Land and CMT I watch the most anyway. Nick at Nite is all Cosby Show and Full House so I'm happy with at least TV Land.
Full House is on ABC Family
Cosby is on the superstations and TBS
"Nick at Nite is all Cosby Show and Full House so I'm happy with at least TV Land."
Full House is one of the best shows ever produced. They should really find new people and produce a new version of it!
SpikeTV is running a ad during commercial breaks making it sound imminent that Spike will be off DISH.
TV Land is running an ad stating that they're only available on DirecTV and cable.
Do they even have a clue?
Clear demonstration that Viacom would rather lie than negotiate.
You bet, Sumner Redstone (Viacon chairman) has always been known as a lying sack of crap.
Don't forget about Roseanne.
Also, the only thing that seems to air on Noggin at night (aka The-N) is countless repeats of "Degrassi: The Next Generation"
:lol: You're kidding Mark?
One version of Full House polluting the air waves was enough, I don't think we need another. But there is newer version of that show, its called 7th Heaven. I remember before TV Land when Nick at Nite aired decent shows like Dragnet, Adam 12 and Hitchcock, not late 80s/early90 reject sit coms.
I like that Idea but only if the Olsen Twins come back as their current age
And the lies continue (every half hour or so)...I guess everyone that's watching TVLand on Dish right now is just imagining they're doing it (since "We're no longer on Dish Network")
So does Charlie have a slander case over the ads lying about the availability of these channels? People switching from cable to dbs could be influenced by these lies thereby further affecting E*'s business.
Interestingly enough, when I was on the phone with DirecTV last night, their first hold message was directed towards EchoStar/Dish Network customers who might be calling to switch, assuring them that they weren't raising rates or losing Viacom/CBS channels.
Well, apparently part of the new deal is an extension on these channels too, so there we go.
