This is the second time w/in a year that programming has been interrupted due to your disputes with different broadcasters! As just one, of I'm sure millions, PAYING consumers, I urge you to find a way to settle your disputes w/out interrupting the programming or offer your consumers a discount for services lost. Last year the dispute was with Fox & it went on for MONTHS! This is not only ridiculous, but unfair to your consumers who PAY for the programming in the first place.
Return the programming to the consumers & settle your disputes w/out involving the consumers and telling them to contact our congressmen! This is a childish and petty means to get the public in an uproar over something that DISH has full control over & that congressmen won't be bothered with.
It is not in Dish control, the channel owner turned it off. As with other channel disputes (& there have been plenty over the years, it's nothing new) you don't get a refund as your agreement does not guarantee specific channels. I agree it's not right or fair, but it happens with every pay TV provider. Only option is OTA with an antenna if you have it available.
