    Where the flippin' hell am I whining? Thread asked, I replied. Didn't threaten to leave; didn't threaten to cancel my account; didn't threaten to go to Direct or Comcrap which both had it. Just simply said that even though this same thread appears on here, and I replied the same way on it, that I would like Dish to add LOGO.
    As far as rate increases go, I have never, I repeat NEVER have complained about a rate increase. Why, because I know it is part of the game. Fortunately I am with a company that so far has done a hell of a job of keeping their rate increases in check unlike other companies out there. LOGO (if it is added) won't be the reason for the rate increase, it will be for the sports channels. I didn't ask for them, I didn't vote for them, but they are there, and we all will get to pay for them. Again, part of the game. So Paul, you can go try picking on someone else. Or is it that you are picking because of the channel I want??? :confused:

    MASN would be nice if it's still around next spring. HBO Zone as well just to be able to have all the HBOs


    And if Dish wants to provide a proper Extra Innings package they need to do something with the YES situation. Fine if they don't want to provide it to the NYC crowd, but those Yankees games not on an opponents' RSN are real problems with the Dish EI package.

    Give us Setanta Sport. There has been numerous requests for this channel. There are many people who will pay $11.99/mo for this channel.

    I guess I'll toss my BBC World request in here. Offer it in an international news package
    consisting of BBC World, CNNI, EuroNews, and maybe DW. Put in on 121 or 61.5/148.
    Charge extra for it. It should be a cheap buck for Dish, certainly cheaper than 4 new
    sports channels in major packages on core satellites.

    I'll vote for The Tube too. I get it on FTA already and it really seems to be the best music channel
    there is right now for the US market. IMF doesn't have enough variety, and DeluxeMusic has
    potential, but from what I've seen so far they are too much of a Euro-flavored MTV wannabe,
    although it is kind of funny to watch Germans trying to act all "gangsta". A shame really.
    All the MTV's and VH1's are pretty much a writeoff at this point except maybe VH1 Classic.
    Fuse has gone the Greasy-Kid-Stuff route. The Tube really is the closest thing to M2 back in the
    day. I hope it lasts at least as long as M2 did before it became MTV2 and started to suck.

    They can't add CBC Canada to a basic package. They MAY be able to add the local affiliates for Windsor in the Detroit DMA and Niagra Falls in the Buffalo DMA but that's about it.
