    Sick of the Disputes

    From a July 2019 article: Broadcast TV stations are being blacked out on cable and satellite TV systems in record numbers this year, with 230 blackouts so far in 2019. Blackouts has mostly been trending up in the past decade, though the number frequently goes down one year before rising again...

    Sick of the Disputes

    Latest reply from Scripp's We know this is frustrating, and we apologize for the disruption of service. Believe me, we are not happy about this – it’s hard to serve our viewers when they can’t find us. We are ready and able to make an agreement with Dish when they return to more standard...

    Scripps Stations dispute?

    Ahhhh, so now we have to be mind readers? Should everyone try to insert their own interpretation to a statement issued by them or actually take them for their official reply to a question?

    Fox WFTX in Fort Myers FL went off today. Luckily I get it OTA but lost the guide info.

    streaming services raising rates dropping channels

    Maybe just to get rid of the "Low Value" subscribers and focus on the higher profit ones? Not all bad for their bottom line. They raise the rates 10% and lose 10% of their customers it's pretty much a wash and they can eliminate a lot of overhead (employees).

    Free Previews Discussion Thread - June 2020

    Basically just going to be the same channel, just to capitalize on the Chip and Joanna Gaines popularity. Back in April MN had a 4 parts special on DYI giving MN the top 4 out of 5 rated shows on DIY.

    It's too bad those that are offended by CK kneeing aren't as offended by someone hanging a noose in Bubba Wallace's pit stall! And people wonder why these protests are happening :facepalm

    NFL

    You do know that a Retired Army Green Beret suggested that CK kneel? Best line from that interview: "I don't necessarily agree with him, but what I've fought for, what we all fought for - whether we like it or not, we can say we don't like it all day - but we took an oath to defend the...

    Dish 1st Quarter 2020 results

    Here is what I read: In Q1, the losses disproportionately fell on satellite TV: AT&T shed a whopping 1 million TV subscribers, mostly from DirecTV, while Dish Network dropped a net 413,000, the company’s biggest-ever quarterly loss. - Cord-Cutting Explodes in Q1 as Pay-TV Sector Delivers...

    Apparently you cannot stream Netflix on the Hopper while streaming VOD on a Wireless Joey.

    Well, the HwS is a 9 year old design. Would you be happy with a 9 year old phone? Netflix started only 3 years before that so I doubt that Dish has that service in mind when designing the HwS. Maybe time to upgrade to an H3?

    PQ D!SH vs Netflix

    For me, when the Hopper first came out, the PQ was not the best. I did notice huge difference for the better when Dish did the UI update. You wouldn't think a change to the UI would make a difference but they must have thrown in other firmware tweeks with that update.
