I hear you. they lock you into a 2 yr contract but then they drop channels and make you get the highest cost package just to get 1 or 2 channels you like then they shut them off. I used to watch the cloo channel but it got dropped. I pretty much pay for maybe 10 channels I actually watch I've tried getting them to have more where we pick which channels we want and only get billed for the ones we watch. instead we get charged to much. I'm sure direct tv is the same
I used cloo as an example There was the chiller channel and it's gone now too. The point was when dish advertises channels then changes the line up it doesn't void the contract but they still want their money even tho they change things like the fight with the network. There was no notice this was going to happen and no opportunity for us to have input on keeping channels. I hate the sporty channels but have to pay for them just to get the few channels I like.
The veiwer data should be used in negotiations when people use ota antennas the networks have no data how many are watching. Dish can provide this so the networks can charge more for their commercials. It should also be pointed out that they are already charging the same or more than the premium channels with hit movies and no commercials. while they have paid programming on most of the time. the only real thing they have is the main time at night but anymore they are mostly reruns and day and time changes constantly. Like i've said on other posts if dish wanted to really win these fights they would come up with a solution to get the locals OTA at peoples houses and then there wouldn't be any thing to negotiate. They would have to give the channels to dish for free.
I only had dish for about 1 week and they dropped ABC and that is one of the channels we watch on a regular basis. The first month they gave me a $5 discount. Talked to them today and they said I could purchase something that I could watch ABC. Why do I want to purchase something that I am paying for already. If I would have known this I would not have switched to dish and stayed with direct
