    No, just the music with the viacom shutdown information. Charlie is only on Channel 101

    Count again. There has always been more channels in the packages than they actually say they included. You might not like all of them but they are there.

    Incorrect. Last night, when I first saw I could no longer receive CBS, they were broadcasting excerpts from the Charlie Chat stuff on my CBS channel. Once that's over, it's just music and some short lame message. Again, this morning, more excerpts from Charlie Chat (sorta like the same one, although I didn't pay attention to it). So yes, they are broadcasting some of the CC stuff from time to time on the channels that were pulled (at least the CBS one).

    Last nite at 7 eastern, there was a special CC on the CBS station that people lost. They answered questions and such (I was in que to ask a question when my cell died...grrrr).
    After that (at least on WCCO..Mpls) they have been running the replay of that CC since 7:40 eastern last nite..It was on this morning.
    101 had a replay of this CC at 9 eastern. Otherwise it has been the same 5 minute Charlie "why your channels arent here" video.

    All I'm saying is this better get solved soon because I contacted my cable company to see what they would offer me to jump ship and they are offering me 2 free YEARS of DIGITAL CABLE and 1 free YEAR of HBO AND SHOWTIME. I emailed them back to see what is all involved in this offer and if it's not too good to be true I'm probably going to take them up on their offer. I mean hell it's two years free service.

    I haven't seen anybody from the tv media report anything other than: Dish pulls Viacom channels.

    It was on the FOX (KTVU) news yesterday and the SF Chonricle reported on it too, I think in markets that lost CBS there's more of an awareness.

    That said, with no Letterman last night I got to get reminded why I don't watch Leno....

    Last night on ABC (KSTP) 10:00 news (Mpls), they said "People woke up this morning to find some of their favorite channels, and one local channel, MTV, missing on Dish Network."

    I didnt know MTV was a local network in Minneapolis??
    **sigh**no wonder KSTP is in last place for news.....stuff like this

    Uhhhhh ... sence ? :eek2:

    Nevermind.

    See how silly it is to pick on someone for spelling or grammar errors ?

    I think we're all upset and should not be picking on eachother. Debating is one thing ... picking on eachother is another.

    We're no better than the bullies that we're complaining about. :nono2:

    Amen to this... I dumped Comcrap cuz all the seemed to offer was a lot of Viacon crap, along with high prices and lousy service. So I have no problems with a Viacon-less Dish Network. Costs less and the people are nice when u call, too.

    Good Luck! Maybe you'll get a mystery charge of $881 like I did from them. You'll see more ''red" over something like that, than over a few missing Viacon channels.
