What does everyone want on Dish net.
VH1 Country, HBO Zone, the other 4 Cinemax channels
Even though I said it on the other thread about this...
YES Network, LOGO, Oxygen, Fine Living, PBS Kids Sprout
Here we go.. fresh thread - successfully started and continued....
P.S. Do you people want all those for Christmas .. or before / after Christmas?
Might as well add it to this thread:
The Mets sports net for my local RSN and MASN for the Orioles and Nationals on EI package.
Dish won't add any channels until next year. Why? They just added 4 sports channels! You'll be whinning next year, when they raise rates 7%..
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???
Go pick some strawberries maybe?
I'd love to see YES Network!
Universal HD , locals HD, WB HD, Fox HD, ESPN2 HD an rest of Voom
Here are some of the requests made over the past year in the old thread:
CSTV, Comcast Chicago, NFL Network, ESPNU, ESPN Deportes
Still Waiting? (in some randomized order)
WWE 24/7, The Sportsman Channel, Yes, Comcast Sports South,
Hallmark Movie Channel, Trio, Oxygen, the rest of the VH1 and MTV music channels, JC-TV (blocked by SkyAngel), The Tube, Ovation, Goodlife (now American Life), Horror Channel, B Mania Movies, BET Jazz, FitTV, Fine Living, Outer Max & Thriller Max, TV One, Logo, BLUES Channels,
CBC Canada, CNN International, Newsworld Int'l (now Al Gore's Current), ABC NewsWorld, C-SPAN 3, EuroNews, BBC World, Annenberg/CPB Channel, The International Channel, Sky News
ESPN2HD, Broadcast Network HD, Universal HD, Starz and Max HD, Every current network's HD version,
Available west feeds of current channels.
I've probably missed a couple ... but there were a lot of repeats for the same channels ...
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.
Some channel requests:
The Anime Network
VH1 Mega Hits
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.
I'll second this list.
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.
I'll third this list. Especially ESPN2HD before the World Cup starts.
