You should be negotiating with AT&T since they own DirecTv & HBO.
In the meantime, my bill dropped for 1 month and has gone back up. WTF is up with that?
Rising costs & declining service mean that I am not getting my money's worth. Additionally, I am no longer bound by contract limitations since I have been a customer for a very long time. You've had me long enough & if you still want my business, you need to start making what little services that remain appealing. If you want customer loyalty, you need to earn it. I can wait for GOT to come out on disc. I won't like it, but it won't be the end of my world.
Additionally, I really don't need local channels, so I can sign up with DirecTv to get the programming I want.
Does Dish even care any longer?
SadedraJ - No need for a private message. I do not have an issue with my account other than not being provided what I signup for. I really do not care about the "other" providers who have disputes as I am not paying for their services. What I do care about is Dish dropping two premium channel offerings that I signed up for.
Your Packages response is a BS response to this event. In over 20 years I have never had any provider act in a manner in which Dish is on this issue. Your management has touch with their customer base and I am begining to think that they must be part of Congress as they are acting out in the same manner as our Government.
Shame on Dish Management.
Dishpromise.com is never updated!!! It is exactly the same everytime you go to it. We need better updates as to when our programming will be returned. The alternative you have given us is terrible, it is the same station on 2 different channels and the other is in spanish. Please get my HBO back soom.
The latest update we have is the negotiations are still on going. We understand contract disputes are frustrating and working to reach an agreement as soon as possible. I can review your account and see what other options we have available. Please send me a private message with your phone number and 4 digit security code.
I completely understand where you're coming from, Tandye! Game of Thrones is definitely one of those shows that is better on your TV. HBO NOW is available on a wide range of popular devices and services (Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Prime). Depending on your TV, you may already have access to one or more of these options that will still allow you to view it on your TV. If not, we are still actively negotiating and are open to a fair deal for the restoration of HBO. Hopefully we will come to an agreement before Game of Thrones premier!
