    Phoenix Meredith stations dispute?

    I got so used to watching the channels on my Xfinity Stream app that I didn't even notice the channels were on until just now. Glad they're back.

    Phoenix Meredith stations dispute?

    I have the Xfinity Stream app on both the bedroom and livingroom Rokus so I can still watch the channels. Their DVR is pathetic though, something like 4 recordings max stored at a time. On the plus side I get Boston locals as well. And free HBO this weekend. The rest of the family doesn't like...

    Phoenix Meredith stations dispute?

    Another week without an agreement. Meredith in my market is ABC, CBS, and FOX. Why they are able to control 3 major networks in one market is another good question for the FCC. I should cancel the locals until this gets resolved. $12 a month is pretty steep for just NBC & PBS.

    Phoenix Meredith stations dispute?

    The remaining Springfield network on DISH ( WWLP NBC ) is a Nexstar station and is actually running "news" stories about Directv blacking them out.

    Phoenix Meredith stations dispute?

    Meredith has ABC, CBS, and Fox stations in the Springfield MA DMA. I've got a medium size outdoor antenna but reception is spotty when the trees are leafed out. Also have the Xfinity app with my internet subscription so I can pick up the channels there.

    Sling adapters being discontinued

    Just tried connecting to my 722 w/ Sling adapter and watching a recording. Still works, sort of. Crashed when I tried to rewind.

    HBO Questions

    My wife won a HBO Now gift card in a raffle. Pretty strange, you can't use the card on an active subscription. HBO Now has a 7 day free trial, so thinking I'd lose that if I entered the giftcard info first I just took the trial. Then 2 days before the trial ended I tried to add the card to the...

    HBO $10 "deal"?

    Ok thanks. So it's basically an ongoing promo that could end anytime?

    HBO $10 "deal"?

    So I've got the $10 HBO deal from awhile back. Is this really a deal or is that DISH's regular price now? Haven't been watching it much so I'm thinking about cancelling it for awhile (maybe until WestWorld comes back in the spring). I believe the original deal was supposed to last until you...

    DishAnywhere How good? How about to a big screen?

    I can cast from my Win10 laptop to my cheapy TCL Roku 4K TV wirelessly. Just hold down the Windows key and "P" at the same time. Choose "project to another device wirelessly" and choose the receiving device from the list. I believe this used to be called "Miracast". PQ is good, but the...

    account transfer to wife denied

    I lease my main receiver and own a couple of secondary ones. The biggest advantage to owning those is I can activate/deactivate when ever I wish. So if I don't need one for the winter (it's in a screened in porch) I can just take it off the account without having to return it. Bring it back out...

    Parting Gift from Dish

    Isn't it technically a shipping fee? I believe you're free to use your own shipper if you'd rather.

    Anyone trying to watch the Boston Bruins?

    Fixed itself at some point. Somebody must've flipped the switch.

    Anyone trying to watch the Boston Bruins?

    Yup, same thing here. Haven't done the chat, I guess that's next.

    DISH Playmaker w/ Wally only 1 satellite?

    You're closer to needing directly West than directly South. Go to the Dishpointer website and put in your address. Choose the 119 satellite. It'll show you where you need a clear view. Higher would possibly help if you're semi blocked to the southwest, but it's not all that likely.

    DISH Playmaker w/ Wally only 1 satellite?

    Are you setting this up in Georgia or Texas? The Playmaker only sees the Western Arc. In Georgia that's around 230 degrees, or 50 degrees west of due south. You might have to move the unit if you don't have a clear view of the southwest sky. Even in Dallas you're looking at approx 215 degrees...

    DISH Playmaker w/ Wally only 1 satellite?

    I finally gave up and got a Pathway X2. It's saved a lot of blood pressure points for sure. It's nice to arrive on a spot, hook the X2 up, then hook up water / lower awning, etc. and have TV working before I finish.

    DISH Playmaker w/ Wally only 1 satellite?

    DISH receivers are an absolute mess for camping. A switch check with my 1000.4 and 211k receiver takes over 20 minutes, a majority of that on test "4 of 4". What can it possibly be checking for that long? They need to change to a check box menu where you tell it what dish/lnb setup you have. Or...

    Pathway X2 Replacement Black Top?

    Had a little miscue on my recent camping trip. Bungee must've vibrated loose in the wind and my X2 slid under the 5th wheel mount while traveling down the highway. Knocked all 3 mounting points out of the light black plastic top. To it's credit a couple of pieces of duct tape and it worked...
