ugg.. AMC.. they are all so commercial saturated I can't even stand look at the channel listing. You see something you think you want to watch on it that is typically an hour/half long and its really 3 hours on AMC. They play 15minutes of the movie and 4-6minutes of commercials. I counted the last time I stopped on it (they were playing first Ghostbusters) about 12 commercials most of which were 30seconds long.
That is just nuts...so if they drop it in a dispute like HBO I'd be happy so long as they gave me a few $$ back on the bill.

That's why I pay $4.99 a month for Premiere. There are no commercials!

The awwsome dvr of the hopper is the #1 reason we have not gone streaming...

15min of program...
Then 10sec of skip,skip,skip commercials.


Commercials???
Skip,skip,skip....

Too many streaming services block skipping during commercials.

You think Dish is paying a few bucks for AMC? Ha. No. More likely a quarter/month.

So you like paying for Dish AND Premiere too? That's what makes me mad about Motor Trend Channel...I'm paying Dish to watch it and then every other commercial on it is "see what you're missing and no commercials subscribe to MT for $4.99 a month."
