@Theripp The other carriers are still working with existing agreements that have not yet expired. When it comes time for them to negotiate with Fox for new agreements they will likely go through a similar process that we are now enduring. Directv had several periods of blackouts or popular channels during the years I was with them. Directv is currently in a dispute that has blacked out local channels for customers in the Pacific Northwest. The tactics are always the same: the networks want to gouge us with huge increases and the carriers want protect us from huge increased fees so we have a stand-off.

No FS 1, 2, Fox North, Fox  Midwest or Big 10 Network.  Dish is not paying these carries, but continues to bill me for these stations.  This is crap.  Football season is my favorite and I am now having to go other places to watch games.  Is anyone really listening?

There is only one price change per year, in January, and Charlie has already said that it is likely the price drops...

@DiamondGirl9983 If DISH is gouging us I can tell you (as a recent transfer from Directv) that we are getting gouged much less than the customers of the competition.
