Unneeded channels

I get 120 channels, and I dont look at 57 of them. So why do we need all those filler channels? Why cant you pick what channels you want?

Channels are arranged in packages contractually by the channel owners. Channel owners are paid on a per subscriber basis rather than a per viewer basis. They do not want their channels sold a la carte, so they force the bundle with providers. The closest you’ll get is the Flex Pack. Have you checked it out?

You can customize your Guide to list only the channels you want to see.  Those others will still be there and you are still paying for them but you do not have to see them in the list.

Hi LER79! It's true! You can customize your guide into only showing the channels that you like to watch. This makes navigating the guide easier. 

 

You can create your favorite list of channels and have the guide show that list. Here is a link that can help you do that if you have the Hopper, Joey, or Wally: https://www.mydish.com/support/products/hopper/how-to/set-preferences/guide
