Dish is nothing more than a pornopoly!
Yeah, I gotta GRIPE!
Question: Who was the first carrier to announce it plans to carry Private Fantasy Channel?
Once upon a time Dish once promoted itself as the "clean" family-friendly alternative to DirecTV and cable ..................... now look how far they have fallen.
Charlie Ergen is a PornDog .... he's sold his soul and his company and his subscribers to the devil.
Thanx 4 letting me vent my gripe ... I'm sure most of you feel the same way as I.

Have you looked at DirecTV or your local cable company lately?
I wouldn't say Charlie is a porn dog, I would say he is more of a money dog.
BTW Bert, I do appreciate you posting your gripe here.Scott

I have never understood this argument. If you don't want these channels then don't subscribe to them. Both providers even provide the option to have them not even show up in the guide. So if you do not subscribe and remove it from the guide then how does it effect you?

It was the "censorship" issue that brought me to Dish in the first place.
When NYPD Blue first premiered, our local network station felt that our area was not mature enough to handle such "porn" and refused to air it.
Back then you didn't need waviers to get the national network feeds. I signed up with Dish and got the the national feeds, just to have a choice as to what I wanted to watch.
Other than a little less sleep on Tuesday nights, it hasn't seemed to cause any damage. In fact I am now becoming spoiled and actually believe that I can decide for myself other things such as what to eat, where to go, who to vote for and all the other decisions that come from a lack of censorship.

What makes this country great is that adults can do as they like. This country was founded on this principle. Just as I cannot impose my moral structure upon you, you cannot impose your moral structure on me.
You can, however, vote with your dollars. I hope that you and "most of you [that] feel the same way as I" please do so.
My bet is Dish doesn't feel it.
