I right there with you! I'm here in Kansas and trying to watch my Chiefs football on and over the air digital antenna that was provided by dish. It doesn't work with my receiver. So I hooked it up to my TV. The signal is waek, even though I only live 35 miles away from from the city. This is getting ridiculous! When are going to get the channels we paid for!? I want my football on the satallite channels I am paying for! When is going to end!?
Come on dish. Do your job and provide the service we are paying for!
Yep, neighbors switched to Direct yesterday due to loss of Portland 12 which has been showing preseason football & they were tired of missing games. It's time for someone to get us our channel(s) back.
BTW the block is Meredith's fault, they're the only one that can cut off the signal. If Dish could still show programming while they in negotiations they would (that's what they originally asked Meredith to do) - last thing Dish wants is for more subscribers to leave.
Have you considered getting an OTA antennae (hooked up through you Hopper by Dish), instead of paying for the local Dish package?
Our household switched this summer. I'm happy saving $12 or $15 (or whatever the price was) to get the local channels through Dish. In our area, we've also lost a local channel because Dish is in negotiations to be able to offer the channel through their local package.
