MTV, CBS, Comedy Central.. OFF Dish Network

Talks between Echostar & Viacom have broken down, as a result Dish Network has pulled MTV, CBS, Comedy Central, VH1, Nick & several other Viacom networks off their system.

I am a 2 year Dish Network customer, I chose Dish Network because they provide an excellent service for a low price, even with the recent rate increases they are still the best value in subscriber television hands down.

I support Dish Network 100% in their efforts to keeep rates down even if it
means giving up shows that I enjoy for a little while, or even permanently
if need be.

MTV, CBS, Comedy Central.. OFF Dish Network

I just signed up with Dish last Friday. While I'm very happy with it so far, I guess my timing could have been a bit better.

And I agree, it's a good thing someone out there is fighting rate increases and mandatory channel packaging where they can.

So since I have the top 60 package, are they going to substitute in some other channels to make up the number? Or are we due a pro-rated amount until they get the channels back?

You should get a $1 or $2 credit on your bill, depending on if you lose a local CBS affiliate.

Reason #753 why DirecTV is better than DISH.

The top two reasons being:

NFL Sunday Ticket
TiVo

And no, that DISH PVR thing is not the same as TiVo.

Let the arguments begin!

(But it does suck that you've lost your Viacom stations. Forget CBS - losing 'The Daily Show' on Comedy Central would be a horror to me!)

Hurrah for Cable!

My buddy hasn't had SciFi or Comedy Central for a while. He hasn't been the same

I went into a bout of depression when Speed swiched over to digital programming.

Ditto for Comcast DigiCable. I dont lose nothing.. reception is damn flawless and best of all > its $30/month (if you have the package I have... digi phone and broadband cable) Total monthly bill is around $100.

Got TiVo, no DirecTV required. If Murduch decides to dump TiVo for his own proprietary DVR (like he did in the UK) you will wish you had a Stand Alone TiVo too.

Since i'm not a Football fan NFL Sunday Ticket has no appeal.

I'l just take my lower monthly rate compared to DirecTV and call that a win.

I agree losing The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will majorly suck, I still think Dish made the right call though.

I hope $2 is enough consolation when you miss the entire NCAA tournament. I find their timing interesting to say the least. If I were a Dish Network customer, I'd be dumping them for DirecTV in a heartbeat.

You could always keep prices down by dumping channels... Dish isn't doing anything special or impressive. They'll lose customers that care about coverage over this, and keep the customers that just care about price.

Me, I'll stick with cable.

Assuming this lasts more than a week or so Dish might lose 1% or 2% of customers, while Viacom will lose 10% of viewers.

Go Dish!
