DISH just dropped TCM and other Turner channels!


Recommended Posts

This is just a temporary truce; an agreement to continue carrying the channels while they negotiate.  Whether our programming fees go up will depend on the terms of the contract the two sides eventually agree to, plus the terms of every other contract up for renegotiation around the same time.

The fact that there is a truce indicates that the final negotiated price will be lower than what Turner was first asking.   So while fees may go up they shouldn't go up as high as they would have if DISH just caved to Turner's initial demands.    While I don't have DISH I'm glad they held firm.    This should help consumers like me when Cox and Turner have their negotiations.

Makes sense.

I just checked the program guide on our Dish receiver:  it lists TCM but not TCM HD.  That's not good enough.

 

Right. BecauseHD is more expensive to broadcast than a"regular" signal? Of course not. The cable & satellite people are just holding your viewing pleasure hostage. AGAIN.

Crooks. Extortionists.
