    Regional sports channels

    And what does that have to do with sports channels? Paying $5 or $6 a month per sub when there is no sports is a complete non satrter.

    Question I have is IF the games are not being played whether Sinclair has to pay. This may be saving Sinclair from total elimination.

    No games, and Charlie has no deal. Had he cut a deal he'd be charging is all for the games that are not playing.

    If YouTube was able to cut this latest deal it means Sinclair knows they gotta do something fast or its all going to fall apart for them.

    DISH can get the same deal as Youtube, and may. The idea is maybe keeping the primary market customers and pushing the regional ones over to the multi-sports package. I can see this might be workable. We'll see soon. Baseball is approaching.

    Sinclair and RSNs

    There is a temporary agreement. There's nothing that says "until they reach an agreement." How temporary is the question, but its not into perpetuity.

    Yeah, last night it was impossible to watch. Only this channel that I could tell. Something's up with this. It's not DISH on my end. It's somewhere else in the DISH network somewhere.

    It is all coming to an end soon. Either when the contracts are up, or bankruptcy of Fox/Sinclair. The model is busted.

    Regional sports channels

    Oh yeah, they will say this. But not being on many providers at all does not help either. It's complicated. Channels are tied to team contracts - and those demands can't be met. In a lot of ways this is the way this eventually goes - Altitude/Fox, etc. gets to decide what to charge and...

    Youtube pulling back and changed the game. I guess Comcast's contract comes up in June. I fully expect something to give here soon. Sinclair will either go to BK court or will cut a deal that will force it to BK court sooner than later. This model is not sustainable/

    RSN model is taking $5 a person across 90% of the company's customers. This is the model that DISH does not like. And if DISH gets a different deal, then competitors are entitled to that deal and the model breaks down. This is the standstill. Do an RSN fee on all? Then ALL customers...

    Clubs can negotiate their own local deals - and can go to streaming if they like going forward. This may come in the future, but unlikely right now - you see the local RSNs have locked up exclusivity. So they'd have to renegotiate any existing deals in place, first. Unlikely - because the...

    Has DISH Lost it ways?

    Directv has no Pac 12. Pac 12 is a must for west coast viewers and anyone who went to a Pac 12 university. Directv never even tried. Directv is failing fast as well

    Has DISH Lost it ways?

    I would add better streaming ability to stream ESPN3, and the Pac 12 regionals direclty to the Hopper.

    new credit policy?

    Yeah, I get it. I had same deal for one year and two year. I asked her for the one year because I am seeing my equipment start to flake out a little bit at times.....so I was concerned the equipment making it two years.....and if I am out of contract I can get my equipment replaced, or I...

    new credit policy?

    I always let this sit for a few months, then get my offers from the cable, phone company, and streamers. I have Comcast internet. They are always offering me two year deals (sometimes just one) to bundle my internet w/TV for a low rate. Phone co has deals. Streamers have deals. I...

    Fox local channel no longer on Dish

    Well, I am glad you tried. It's the the woods, I have woods and hills. But the distance, yeah, that's a problem apparently. You tried, and they told you that they would do it. You could look at a larger and more powerful antenna? Or you could try all the streamers. Bummer.
