    What happened to TV Silesia? I just tried to order it and the customer service representative told me that it is no longer for sale and that whoever has it will continue to have it and that it is not accepting new customers. This sounds pretty fishy to me. I checked Dish Network's web site and nothing can be found. Looks like they removed it. Does anyone know why? This channel is great in that they offer sports from Poland. Any clue? Dish Network does not seem to have an answer. :nono2:

    My guess is that there was some kind of a dispute between Dish and the content provider. Dish is notorious for playing hardball, especially with channels they have (or want to have) monopoly rights for resale.

    Same thing happened with Polvision few years ago. Dish wanted to be exclusive provider, Polvision did not agree. Polvision is no longer on DN...

    I don't speak Polish, but I used the Google translator. It looks like they have a set top box that can get it: See http://www.tvsilesia.com/


    Maybe one of the FTA gurus can let you know if it is available on FTA satellite?

    I guess you are right. Hardball again. Unfortunately, the customer loses. Dish never responded to my email by the way as to what happened and whether this channel would come back.
