    DISH-Northwest Broadcasting

    Any news or insights on how talks are going between Dish and Northwest Broadcasting? Something tells me this is going to drag on and on and on. I live in the Spokane DMA, and have seen this same thing happen before with DirecTV, and Time Warner Cable. Out of all the companies that own affiliate stations in Spokane(Belo, Morgan Murphy media, etc), I think that Northwest is the absolute worst. It seems like every time a contract with a major TV provider expires, Northwest will use the opportunity to "up the ante" and ask for a ridiculous price increase per customer. I cant speak for others around here, but Im sure many people are getting "fed up" with this.

    With the DirecTV talks going on for months, Im wondering if its time for me to "move"

    Normally the locals disputes don't last too long. Sounds like Northwest Broadcasting might be an exception.

    Move where? You yourself pointed out they play the game with all providers...unless you mean move out of Spokane.

    I was thinking maybe a move to Missoula,MT. Its close enough geographically and I believe on the same spotbeam. The other option I was thinking was maybe purchasing an HD FOX feed from Sobango(All American Direct) I know they provide the networks in SD, but does anyone know if they have HD network feeds?

    Or, you could get yourself a subscription to one of the Canadian DBS services (Shaw or Bell TV). I've had Bell TV service since 1999. They provide Fox stations from Seattle and Boston. I've never missed a single show on Fox.
