Dish didn’t remove the channel. Quincy Media did. Keep in mind, Quincy Media is the only one that legally can remove the channel. And it was removed by quincy because Quincy wants more money. Keep in mind, providers have to offer he channel or negotiate in good faith to get the channel under the FCCs “Take One Take All”. Not sure what “truth” you wanted to hear.

The TRUTH is, of the 16 area Cable and Satellite services, Dish is the only outlyer. Why can't other stations be substituted while you people play your games?

That argument is a farce to begin with. The contracts for each provider is staggered on purpose so no two providers are down at the same time. The channel owners do that on purpose and then say “but we have successfully negotiated with everyone else” until they haven’t.

The FCC enforces Designated market areas and does not allow the import of Channels from out of market. The market areas are drawn by Nielsen’s Media. They cannot import, per the FCC.

The fact is, ignoring your sarcasm, I am telling you this Long Time customer will be leaving if this isn't settled by Wednesday.

That would be your choice, however that is not a driving factor to their decision making. They have nearly 13 million customers to think about, and that will be the priority. Helping the greater. They have an algorithm for the number of customers to leave vs the cost to increase to you and how many would leave then.

I don't believe there are 13,000,000 customers in the WEEK Peoria, IL viewing area. I am pleased that Dish has an algorithm that allows them to treat customers like pawns and still show a healthy profit. I hope to the Gods of Broadcasting, you aren't an employee of DISH

You’re right that there are not 13M customers in Peoria’s market, but Quincy is not holding up just Peoria. The affected markets likely are several tens of thousands, but you want them to charge customers out of those markets to pay for your increases, but I bet come Jan, you will be back to complain about the annual price increase. Balancing all markets and all customers is important which is why the algorithm is important. No one market is favored over the next.
