I also think people should just sub to HBO Now. It will be interesting onces GoT comes in April. Thats when things get real. I have no problem getting HBO now and sticking with DISH. Screw AT&T and there BS.
I'm with my fellow message posters on this one. This ATT/Dish dispute has gone on nearly 3 months now. I do have another alternative: Return to cable as a subscriber. I am reluctant to do this, but DISH apparently seems content to let its subscribers just suck it up and deal with no HBO/Cinemax. No active negotiations means you are NOT working on my behalf and since my initial subscription INCLUDED access to those and other premium channels, DISH has breached their contract with me for not providing them. Even mobile service in my RV is a pain. I must start up and wait for nearly 20 minutes while signals are located, guide is downloaded, etc. before I actually see any programming. I have a mobile HD antenna and a Blu Ray disc player, and I'm beginning to think that I can certainly make due with that on the road. There's even been confusion over 2 Wallys that I purchased with my RV BEFORE I became a dish customer that DISH wanted me to send back or be charged for them when I idled my mobile service for the winter! I am VERY sad it's come to this, but the time is rapidly approaching where I dump DISH over all of these issues. Just not worth it anymore and no progress in negotiations.
Hi TheJuneauRaven. I know that going through a negotiation can be really frustrating and I can assure you that we are still actively working hard to reach a mutually beneficial agreement for the restoration of their channels. If you are using those mobiles services and experiencing issues we're always happy to troubleshoot with you to see if they can be cleared up. For any account-specific questions, please reach out to us in a Private Message including the phone number and 4 digit PIN on file and we'll work through your concerns together.
I feel the same. Those of us who had HBO are the ones who pay for it. Frankly, I've been sick to death of paying for other peoples sports channels for years now, that we have never watched!
This has gone way past ridiculousnous now. I DO NOT WANT TO GET HBO NOW. I want to actually record shows on HBO, with the crappy buggy as hell equipment that I am paying Dish for.
I WANT IT BACK OR DISH CAN SCREW OFF!
I'VE REACHED MY BREAKING POINT!
I understand your frustration regarding this negotiation with HBO, JD57. I want to assure you that we are working hard to get these channels back as soon as possible.
We always strive to have top of the line equipment and I am sorry to hear that your equipment has missed this mark. I would love to investigate it with you to see what we need to do to get it working correctly. May I ask what issues you are experiencing?
The wicked witch has kidnapped your 4 children and announced she will be serving them as the main entree for dinner next Sataurday. You scream and cry that you want them back, you want them back, but she says nothing.
Then some of your "friends" start criticizing you because you are not negotiating with her "in good faith" surely if you just negotiated a deal could be reached. Perhaps she would settle for only cooking 2 of them or maybe she'd be happy with just their legs to on her dinner table, surely a compromise could be reached. Why do you not want to negotiate with her.
ATT's demands are not to raise more revenue, they are to put Dish Network out of business, and ATT is not backing off.
So why does Dish not just negotiate and find a compromise with ATT who only wants Dish Gone.?
Bull**bleep**. YOU ARE NOT working hard enough or around the clock to get HBO back or else it would be back by now. You are playing games with your customers and screwing over subscribers. Stop with the canned scripted 'sorry' messages and actually do something. You are as bad as 45 and his wall.
