Here we go again. Fox Sports West (Ch-417) Angeles vs. Oakland not available. Dish Message says there is a dispute with Fox and to contact Fox to complain. Uverse is also affected.
Sorry if you had the misconception that DISH gets all the sports all the time,that happens because everyone would like cheaper prices, better equipment,ect.Redbullsnation said:
Those who have been with Dish for awhile understand this?? Please. Plenty of us have been with Dish for awhile and we do understand. Just not that Dish has our financial interest at heart. Dish has Dishes financial interest at heart. Not that is wrong, just don't sugar coat it, because Dish has NO interest in our financial interest. Lack of 24/7 RSN's, Complete lack of 3D, wonderful multi DVR charges. I agree that someone has look out for our best interest, it's just not Dish. Yeah I know, if I don't like it I can switch. Thought I'd say it before some other comes up with that lame statement.Jhon69 said:Sorry if you had the misconception that DISH gets all the sports all the time,that happens because everyone would like cheaper prices, better equipment,ect.
But for sports it would be DirecTV or cable.
DISH has the consumer's financial interest more at heart,plus they tend to have more disputes just for that reason.
Those here who have been with DISH for awhile understand that and appreciate that DISH takes the subscriber's financial interest at heart and fights for cheaper prices.Because we know the sports we are viewing have been obtained for the cheapest price possible.
But even now and then even DirecTV has disputes over prices because the programming providers believe they can just raise their prices and it will just be passed on to the subscriber.:nono2:
There has to be someone who will look out for our best interest and I have found that DISH is the one who does this best after I have tried all the providers in my area,plus I really like their HDDVRs better,just my opinion.Good Luck!
It's Deja Vu all over again!david91722 said:Apparently, Dish Network doesn't want to pay to air the 25 extra games that FSW picked up from KCOP.
MISSING ANGELS GAMES?
If you're an AT&T U-verse or Dish customer, unfortunately, you won't receive all Angels telecasts this season. FOX Sports West this year has increased its TV schedule and will show approximately 150 Angels games in 2012. The additional games have been made available to local TV providers. Most distributors have decided to carry all the games, but a few have not, including AT&T U-verse and Dish. If you aren't receiving all Angels telecasts, we encourage you to contact your local TV provider to request that they carry the full-schedule of games.
If you would like more information, you can send an email to FOX Sports West at [[email protected]]. We will continue to update you on our progress as we work to make every televised Angels game available to our viewers.
From 2006 until the end of the 2011 Major League Baseball season, KCOP held the television broadcasting rights to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball team; the team and Fox Sports West signed a 20-year broadcast deal beginning with the 2012 season, making 150 annual Angels telecasts exclusive to Fox Sports West, with a selected portion of that schedule airing on Prime Ticket.
And there you have the problem in a nutshell. A channel wants more money, then loses one of the main reasons Dish would want the channel at the price. Then Dish has to pick up another RSN to get a sports team.Michael P said:BTW, a few years later the Indians left FSN for their own network STO.
And I assume they want to be paid a lot of money for each airing ... I wonder if DISH can get a rebate from KCOP for carrying them without the games?FOX Sports West this year has increased its TV schedule and will show approximately 150 Angels games in 2012.
