    Stupid Dish Network

    Well I woke up this morning to an FSN Ohio channel that was not there because of a carriage dispute between FSN Ohio and Dish. I'm so frikin sick of Dish Network. First they don't give me MLB Network. Then they take FSN Ohio away. They suck. I wish I would have never gotten Dish and am switching to Directv very soon. Meanwhile I will probably have to miss the last 3 games of the season and all the postgame on FSN Ohio. Makes me furious!!!

    I emailed the ceo and told him if they do not have it back soon I will switch to dirct tv, I know that one customer does not matter much but I had to do it anyway.

    Call their "loyalty team." Such a thing actually does exist, and they take good care of customers.

    The lack of an NFL package hurts Dish but, overall, it is a much better product than Direct TV.

    I had Direct TV before and hated it, I prefer Dish but If I can not watch Reds baseball I might as well go back to cable.

    I've had DirecTV since I moved to Michigan in 2002 and have had a very positive experience. Their customer service is outstanding and I've always been pleased with the product. They are willing to offer promotions and discounts to loyal subscribers to help with monthly costs, as well.

    SHAMELESS PLUG: If any of you disgruntled Dish Network folks want to switch to DirecTV, use me as a reference and DirecTV will give each of us $100.

    Pay no attention to the shameless plug above. I will be happy to give you a $100 credit.

    As far as baseball is concerned, you can't beat DirectTV.

    If there was a ton of games left i would be livid, but with 3 and those 3 having no meaning I can live with it. What bothers me is you can't get out of dish network unless you pay a hefty fine and getting direct TV requires a $200 up front deposit in our area and cable is just way to much.

    They broke the contract not you...tell them to go to hell. You agreed to the contract with Fox sports Ohio and other Fox sports channels. They do not have these anymore...they broke the contract...
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Unfortunately, this is not true. They have in the contract something to the effect of "Dish network reserves the right to change it's rates/programming at any time".

    Then I reserve the right not to pay them. What if there programming went down to 3 channels? Do they have the "right" to charge me for canceling?

    I don't roll over. They can send me all the bills they want. I told them they have a week to get this straighten out or I'm changing back to cable. If they come after me I'll take them to small claims court here in my home county. Do you think they will send a lawyer down here to Kentucky? No..they won't show up and I get a judgement against them.

    They will get it done.. When I called the very nice lady said that EVERYONE calling was very upset and did not care about the fight between Dish and FOX.

    Here is another situation..What if you were A.E. doors and you advertise with FOX. You were told you are going to be in like 1.3 million homes every game night, but now it down to 700,000...I would be mad and want a partial refund from FOX. Both sides are getting hit, and they will work it out.

    What if you were in California and wanted to get the big games this weekend against the Giants and Padres?? A bunch of mad fans in California..
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Wow that sucks. I know my family back in Cincinnati will not be happy at all. They have been pondering whether to switch away from Dish, and I think this will be the straw that does it. First now having MLB now not having FSN!

    FSN picked a bad time to ask for more money. There's only 3 games left and they'll almost certainly get a deal done before next season starts.

    If FSN pulls this 2 months ago I'm definitely switching, now I think I'll wait it out.

    This. Exactly. What is the nature of the dispute?

    I just talked to a Dish Rep and they said that Fox Sports demanded a 50% rate increase and has opted to removed their programming during the increase dispute. That is a pretty hefty rate increase
