Unregistered, the reason that Dish Network doesn't carry YES is because Dish believes that YES is asking an unreasonable price to carry the channel. Dish wants to carry YES a la carte so that a price increase won't be forced on all customers (many of whom don't want the channel), but YES wants to be carried as a basic channel, which would give the channel more subscribers. That's why Dish refuses to carry YES.
I know it would be nice to be able to get rid of all the channels that you don't watch, but in reality, it wouldn't be fair to everyone for Dish to just remove channels whenever they want. WE and Lifetime are there for a reason because alot of women watch it. If Dish were to take those channels off, believe me, alot of people would be pissed. If I had a choice, I (and most men) would get rid of those channels too but it's just not gonna happen!
