What is really going on with HBO? The tv guide for you says HBO has removed its channels from Dish. That is not what all the new sources are saying. Dish pulled our service while they are negotiating. Why are we the collateral damage? This is the same thing with CBS a year or two ago, pulling our paid service because you can't get it together. I am ready to cancel and go elsewhere to get HBO back. I am very disappointed that this couldn't have been handled in a better way.
We apologize you have been impacted by HBO’s decision to remove their programming from our lineup. We are working hard to reach a mutually beneficial agreement for the restoration of their channels. For more information visit DISHPromise.com.
When will this be resolved? I can’t even find how to cancel HBO or Cinemax. I plan to stop both of those and get HBO Now via Amazon Prime. Dish says it’s all AT&Ts fault. I am not a customer of AT&T. I am an 18 year Dish/HBO customer. Dish isn’t treating us very well here. At the least, I may just stop premium channels. Wait a year and HBO shows come to Amazon Prime. How about some answers Dish?
Hello chochise_49. We understand that this dispute with HBO has been very frustrating. We don't have a current timeline when HBO will return! While we work to reach a mutually beneficial agreement with HBO for the restoration of their channels, you will not be charged. HBO will be reflected as $0.00 on your bill. The fact is, only HBO can remove your access to their content. We are actively negotiating and are open to a fair deal for the restoration of HBO. Once an agreement is reached, HBO’s channels will be restored and available immediately.
I hear your concern, Alibrat, and will pass it to our Home Office. I hate to hear that you are thinking about leaving the DISH family. We know that channel negotiations are tough for our customers and want to make this tough time easier. I will be happy to take a look at your account help you find any alternative options to make this time easier.
Can you send me a private message with your phone number and 4-digit PIN?
I too am of the opinion that Dish is in breach of contract and connot hold me responsible should I decide to move my services elsewhere. If HBO is not retored by the end of December, I am definitely canceling my services. The special HBO promotion is one reason I signed with Dish and I made it clear that these channels were vital. I do not feel that subscribing to a separate service and having multiple bills is any kind of solution. If I wanted multiple bills, I would start using different streaming services. Get HBO & Cinemax back or I'm gone!
We absolutely get how much not being able to view the programming impacts you, davidf45, and our other members. We certainly don't want to see you leave our DISH Family over this. There hasn't been a timeline given on the negotiation process, but we are still actively working to reach a mutually beneficial agreement to get the programming back on for you, as quickly as possible.
Along with countless others I'm with you, No Lakers, No Dodgers, No HBO or Cinemax and recently lost Channel 5 for a time. Though I'm aware ATT now owns Direct TV and will do anything possible to discourage Dish customers I can no longer pay for less. I will never support ATT/Direct, so I guess it's back to cable where I can get all I want until ATT shuts it down as well. Right back to where we were years ago when the gov. blocked such take overs. BOYCOTT AT&T, BOYCOTT AT&T, BOYCOTT AT&T BLOOD SUCKERS!
