The number of subscribers lost due to a programming decision is not under the scrutiny of audits and the government overview. The total number of subscribers lost due to ANY reason is as it goes to the total number of subscribers from quarter to quarter. Careful, your are about to go over the edge of the cliff. When you do, be sure to land sunny-side up so everyone can see your Dish tattoo.
The shareholders care about the total number of subscribers, not subscribers to a specific channel. Even the channel provider does not ever care about that number as long as they get paid. As to you continuing to quote the company policies, I have never said they did not have the legal right to change things. What I have said is the packages that were presented to me and I made my decision on was changed. That also goes for the functionality of the DVR. Was it legal, yes, was it ethical or even business wise, no. Not to me and many others on that have called and written Dish. I am through discussing this with you as you are certainly a "company boy" and as such will love any changes they make. I for one do not and will not stay with a company that does not make an honest effort to keep the same level of programming that I started receiving. Other providers have those channels and Dish should enter into honest faith negotiations to resolve the issue. It has been going on now for way too long.
Continue to be a lemming for dish. That an a ton of money each month will allow you to watch their channels.
Very good staying on point, and not being drawn into a name-calling contest. Not good staying in the discussion. Once you presented the Hulu evidence, it was over for you. You had made your point. Everything after that was like keeping your starters in after you have scored more than enough to win the game.
The Bible says two seemingly contradictory things in Proverbs. We are told to correct the misinformed with the truth, or be considered to be like them. Maybe two verses later we are told to not correct the misinformed, or be considered to be like them. There is a point where you and your adversary begin to sound like dueling "beasts of burden". I know that was not Bowie, but his compatriot Jagger.
When a person takes pleasure in personal insults, they are not worth your time. That becomes the evidence that any evidence will only make more evident that no evidence is acceptable. Get out of it now, or be confused as of the same species. Sheep despise mud. Pigs love mud, in fact need it to survive. Unless you are willing to change species, you will never "win".
Customers are guests who pay for privileges, not rights. Whatever else we are called, this is the essence of what we are. DISH is the host. They set the rules for our continued enjoyment of their hospitality. If we do not like it, we can leave and "visit" someone else.
Sorry, but I have to disagree with you. We are NOT a guest of Dish. In fact, it is the other way around. Dish is a guest in my home; a guest that I am paying to be in my home.
