Fox News has never been included in Flex.  Flex doesn't have "all the news channels except Fox", only has CNN, you need to add the News package to get the other news channels. If you have locals added then you get the local news - but that costs extra as well.

Fox News is #1 so agree with your question about Fox News. Perhapes the reason is Fox News is conservative and Marxist PC person makes it harder and more money to receive Fox at Dish.

It is our contractual obligations to the channel owners that determine the channel line up in our packages and add-ons. It is the channel owners that tell us what package or add-on they want their channel to be in.

Nothing nefarious nor political. All channels are arranged contractually by the channel owners. You’d have to ask Fox why they do not want the Fox News channel in the Flex base package.

wjef4ds, once you are logged in to the MyDISH app you can go to Services > Current Services > Manage TV > select the programming you'd like to add/remove.

I'd like to see the News flex package balanced better between conservative and liberal news organizations. Consider adding Newsmax (216), and OAN to give the other half of your customer base a choice.

If they add more channels they will have to increase the price, that's why they offer the News Pack as an option, just like adding Sports or Kids programming. It's the way Flex Pack was offered - customers can choose what they want.
