    Is there any way to remove channels from "Channels I Get"?

    I'm a newby on DTV from Dish for over 10 years and Dish has one up on DTV in this regard. I agree with the original poster that there should be a way to ONLY show what you subscribed to but there isn't. Since companies only do things with profits in mind they probably have documented proof that...

    Guess I'll Show Just How Much About FTA I Don't Know

    I've spent close to an hour looking and can't find the answer, sure hope someone on here knows the answer to this FTA question. I'm in SE La, root for the Saints, but am originally from Texas and am a die hard Cowboys fan. On a Cowboy website, there was a post that said FTA would pick up Cowboy...

    dish quality control shows up at my house..

    Where I live a locked privacy fence requires the utility meter reader to call on cell phone to our house 5-10 minutes before hand just to make sure we are home to let them get into the back yard to read the meter, it's been working great for years. No complaints from either side, them or us...

    sky angel sat owes me money

    Someone that goes to my church that has been subscribing to SA monthly for 4 years had been putting it on autopay on his credit card. He told me a couple of Sundays ago that he called SA because they took out one payment the month after SA went dark. He called and told them to correct it or he...

    Poll - Which direction did everyone go?

    not really a mis-characterization, just not telling what has been on these forums for the past year telling about SA not being totally honest with their subs. Wouldn't say that they screwed the public, although that might be a little harsh, and in some eyes that's exactly what they did......I...

    Disappointed lifetime members post HERE

    I'm disappointed also but wish them the best. I've forgiven them, they need it like all of us need forgiveness, but won't support their endeavor because of their dishonesty. I've come to the conclusion after reading all of these posts here and elsewhere that SA must have changed up the...

    Family Package Channels not able to go back 48Hours

    Well of course not, it's not ethical at all! I was just commenting on what was legal and what recourse a business had in case their rules were violated. A business is hoping that they can put out their rules and people will follow their rules. If they ask everyone that joined their club or...

    Family Package Channels not able to go back 48Hours

    Anything on the screen is put there by the company that wishes you to abide by it's TOS. A company can't tell you not to record it for your own personal use or their TOS can't because a company has to abide by the law just like you and me. A company can't make rules or TOS to override a law, if...

    Sky Angel IPTV lineup

    Hey Guys I'm coming at this from a different perspective. I'm a lifetimer that paid $199 for SA and the contract says my lifetime, my wife's lifetime, or my family's lifetime.....BUT.......I'm not so naive to think that the company can keep on staying in business without finances to keep it...
