    Coincidence that D* strikes a deal with Viacom and E* negotiations falling through on the same day??

    Never underestimate the power of Rupert Murdoch.

    Total domination is inevitable...

    Assimilation... is inevitable.

    Didn't Charlie already try that?

    Something leads me to the assumption that this whole situation is BS. How did this news slip through our hands until right now? We usually know about these kind of things well before anything huge goes down. Could this be a secret E* bashing in disguise? I guess we'll have to wait until midnight to see if this really falls through...

    Ew, some of you are right about those cities, I'm sorry, I scribbled them quickly at work, I was busy. Some of those shouldn't be there, others I put the wrong state, sorry! Will edit.

    DBStalk ambush?

    Man, this feels like it's shaping up to be like the battle for Middle Earth.

    IF those channels go dark tonight, then tomorrow I will:

    * Be extremely impressed with Tasydra's inside information. (And I still say anything ending in "ydra" sounds like a female name.)

    * Get on the phone with DirecTV to talk about being assimilated.

    I would assume so... (that it's BS) I find it hard to believe Charlie would let so many popular channels just disappear.

    Actua;y we were talking about this two weeks ago. I thought a temporary deal was signed. I guess it was really temporary.

    You're not the only one who thinks this about my name. :p

    If you all don't believe me, call 1-800-333-DISH, talk to tech support, and ask them about Viacom take down.

    Go ahead.

    Toll Free.

    Nothing to lose.

    They'll tell you that something is happening, but they more than likely won't know the amount that I posted here. Then again, they could of updated the CSR's on the info.

    Go on.

    1-800-333-DISH

    Free call.

    Go.

    P.S. Well, what are you waiting for?

    Uh, so I should go ahead and call Dish, where the CSRs will say "that something is happening", but they won't know about the details you're posting.

    Which would show that ... ? I don't know the end to that sentence.

    Tasy, as I've said, I'll wait to be impressed until the morning. BTW, were you at the last shareholder's meeting? Maybe I saw you there.

    Thats the same thing I thought when I saw all of those threads about every installer in Dane county ticking you off.

    If this information is correct, you won't have to wait very long to find out. Why don't you wait to pass judgement until then?

    The thing is, if a deal is made, I'll look like a liar, :D! Oh well, damn if I care, I'm not here to impress anyone. Believe it if you want, or don't. I don't care either way.

    By morning you could be proven wrong ...
    Don't forget that E* already has a channel uplinked (since early last week) explaining the missing Viacom's. They wouldn't do that unless they intended to use it. Too much trouble.

    Tick tock, watch the clock. As much as I wonder about Tasydra and his motives, there are enough of the usual inaccuracies to qualify him as a CSR. :lol:

    At least it isn't CNN ... now that WOULD annoy me.

    Tasy, what are your views on video games and their cause of Kid's violence and gun use? ;)

    Don't worry about these guys here. Their is a secret legion of Troll hunters on most forums and those who are not in these legions are quick to accuse.

    Their is a saying about forums and *******s, everyone has one... er something like that. :)
