Fox News has pulled out (or been blocked, depending on pov) by Dish Network.

www.techtimes.com...

***"It's like we're about to close on a house and the realtor is trying to make us buy a new car as well," says Dish senior vice president of programming Warren Schlichting. "Fox blacked out two of its news channels, using them as leverage to triple rates on sports and entertainment channels that are not in this contract."
Dish also says Fox pulled out the two channels even after the satellite pay TV offered a short-term agreement to keep the two channels even as the two companies work out a long-term solution.
However, Fox fired back with the accusations, saying Dish is using its subscribers as its "pawns" to "intimidate and sway our negotiations." Fox News Channel executive vice president Tim Carry says the distribution fees demanded by the broadcasting company are "customary" in a Fox distribution negotiation and it has similar agreements with other TV providers.***

I lost HLN for a month and barely noticed, but I watch a lot of Fox. Apparently Fox subscribers are responding (or maybe Fox spin).

SSDD, they all do it. I have lost a couple networks I watch with Time Warner Cable in the past couple years due to 'negotiations'. But they always end up getting them back eventually.

If you really want the MSM propaganda, no matter what version of the propaganda you prefer, it is out there.

My advice is just say no to all of it.

Festivus is a revolt against the Commercialization of Christmas.

It begun over a fight for the last doll on a shelf.

Since then....It's Festivus for the Rest of Us.

Already an ATS thread on this. Dish has dropped/reinstated numerous other media outlets, including AMC, CNN, all Turner networks, etc. It's just a contract negotiation tactic.

oops, sorry, didn't see it. I went under 'media', that's under 'current events'.
I'm guessing they'll shout and point and ultimately figure out a compromise. I lost HLN for a month and didn't really notice.
I'll probly pull out after New Years and get satellite internet. (no cable where I am)

This is been going on for quite some time, specially since ESPN and the Football association has taken upon themselves to monitor all the sports that they can air for a fee in their sport pass tickets, those that controls the sports as every sport is now an "association" controls the nation and the media and all wants to make profits.

Now regular news channels are joining the bang wagon to offer what later will become your news pass tickets for more profit making.

I changed from Dish network to Direct TV to find out t it was a few disputes early in the year with some local channels and the weather channel, that now has become nothing but full of advertising and useless shows beside the weather news.

Every body wants a piece of the channel profiting business this days that is why when you join a media supplier you are inundated with their different plans and "packages".

No wonder the government joined with the media channel sellers to force people into getting receivers in order to watch tv even if is nothing but crappy.

Even at Christmas you can't resist casting aspersions on People you are incapable of understanding.

Jimmy....You my friend are the one who is extremely confused and selectively angry.

I hope the Season somehow touches your heart...Let the hate go...Merry Christmas

and merry Christmas to you, whyamihere.....there never was a war on Christmas, it was made up. and of course it came from liberals, because that what FOX NEWS told you. because some people started saying "happy holidays" somehow that turned into a war on Christmas....I cast aspersions on people that falsely accuse others of something horrible....example: EBOLA CAUSED BY OBAMA LETTING FLIGHTS COME IN FROM AFRICA!!!......HILARY CAUSED BENGHAZI!!!....IRS TOOK ORDERS FROM OBAMA!!!....OBAMA AND THE CIA FORMED ISIS!!!.....all you have to do is go back thru the thread topics here on ATS....talk about being selectively angry, it's in hundreds of OP's written by conservatives. but, that's off topic, and it's just a matter of "who gets how much" money for the continuation of FOX on satellite.
