    It's been fun...

    After 22 years and 7 months almost to the day, I have severed my relationship with Dish today. I know the typical response by most readers of this type of announcement, especially from someone who has been dormant on this board for several years, is an angry "Don't let the door hit you on your...

    Roku good alternative to no Dish DVR

    With my primary Dish DVR out of commission for the last week or so I was forced to try to find a way to view some programs I would have recorded. DishAnywhere is an alternative. However, the bloated web interface makes my old laptop beg for mercy (picture freezes and incredibly long page load...

    This is why I avoid calling Dish at all costs

    First post in a while, and of course it's strictly to vent about CSRs at Dish. For those that don't know me I have been a Dish subscriber since April 1997. My 622 went into an endless reboot cycle two weeks ago. I tried unplugging for a day twice, removing and replacing card, and then just...

    This Is Us

    "This is Us" had a pretty good pilot if you are into character-driven drama heavy with dialog and very light on action. I am certain this series will quickly devolve into a soap opera, but I thought the Pilot stood alone pretty well. The story opens with seemingly disjointed stories introducing...

    TWC Price Hike effective February 2016

    Think of leaving a satellite company for cable because of the price hikes? Think again. If you have standard TV with one DVR box and nothing else, you bill will go up $6.75/mo. All movie channel packages go up 2 bucks a month each. No word on HBO. I just received notice at work of the price...

    After nearly 19 years... is this the end of Dish for me?

    I've considered dropping Dish before, but only while I was mad at them. Both times the issues were resolved to my satisfaction, or more. I have no problem with the company itself. About 15 years ago when my service went from $50 to $70 a month I said if the price of my service goes over 100...

    Golan the Insatiable

    Fox took an Adult Swim product "Golan the Insatiable" and put it on the main network last night. Call it a reboot. It was pretty funny. It wasn't the best and some of the jokes were old, but it made me laugh out loud a few times. Of course I WANTED to like it. (And I genuinely do). But...
