I say keep on, keeping on.......because 10 times out of 10 you get the info correct, i like reading your inputs
I wasn't charged for HBO when they went off the air. I dropped the HBO package after that just because I'm ornery, but I wasn't charged after they went off Dish Network.
The channel(s) owner asks for x amount of money from DISH. DISH says no. DISH customers scream for the channel(s). How does DISH know their customers aren't willing to pay the demanded price? They don't!
Dish should pay the price required to keep the channel(s) on air until the customers balk at the price DISH charges. Then DISH can go back to the channel(s) owner and demand they lower the price or they will have to drop the programming.
That's how it should work.
DISH, you are doing me no favor when you drop programming I demand to see, or fail to add new programming like the ACC Network that I absolutely must have!
Contracts work however the parties to the contract decide they work. My main point is for DISH to pay the man so I can watch the programming I want to see. Don’t decide for me what I am willing or not willing to pay.
I'll tell you what I don't want more than high prices, not that Dish's prices are not too high - they already are.
What I don't want is a tv programming provider who is not reliable. One day your programming is there; the next day it's replaced with some lame excuse that xyz pulled their programming. With Dish, I've gone without local programming a while back, HBO since from several months ago, Fox Sports currently, and that's just the ones I remember. I know there were others. DISH is no longer a reliable source of tv programming. That's the bottom line. Since I left cable, I've only had DISH. I don't like what I know about DirectTV, except they seem to keep their programming instead of turning some of it off every few months like DISH does. I guess in the end bad service beats no service!
