I’m stunned, ESPN and it’s other channels are my most watched, especially on the weekends, football, baseball, Formula One, etc.

I am pissed and don’t know if I’m gonna be able to stay with Dish over this.

As a temporary solution you could try out Hulu, YouTube TV, Fubo, or DirecTV stream. They all have ESPN.

Woke up and turned the news on ABC and noticed DISH spokesperson going through his spiel that I’ve see so many times in the past. Just another blah blah blah carriage dispute. I’ll survive.

I think we know why ABC in Chicago has the wrong programming guide now...they were changing the programming guide for the dispute and linked the wrong data to the programming guide.

Well that would explain why ESPN was saying they are thinking of selling ESPN diectly to customers yesterday.

This one is surprise though.

Foxbat, Jr., will be most upset! (Not to mention Foxbat, Sr.!)

At least Fox Sports is separate from Fox Studios.

The other part I am curious on is if this drags out, what does it do for Dish and their price increase? Last year they increased prices on Nov 16. Here in Illinois there is a law that we have to be notified of any price increase at least 30 days in advance, which if Dish is on the same timetable, that is coming quickly. (At least I think that law is still in effect...) If Dish is missing that many channels, I cant see the justification of a price increase.

And all the programming from those channels ( except for ESPN) is on Disney’s streaming services, Hulu and Disney+, some on ESPN+, now before/same day/day after as they are on Traditional Channels.

I wonder if Dish is using that fact in the negotiations to get pricing down since the programming is no longer exclusive to Traditional Providers.

Other than Formula1, I don’t watch the ESPN anymore.
I have Disney+ for kids movies and they rarely watch via Dish.

I’m not sure which side I favor, although as a consumer it serves most best to have programming through one avenue. But I don’t want to pay more for that one avenue.

I think this will be the thing that pushes me to sign up for the F1 streaming service, cut ESPN out of the whole process.

edit: Subscribed. Sorry, ESPN. I could drop National Sports Pack from my Dish, but I will need to consult the Foxbat Family before I pull that ripcord.

Glad I have Hulu for FX, etc. I'll get ABC OTA. I never watch ESPN.

my bet is it will not last long. That being said, I have been wrong before.

You called that one right. I had to set up some manual timers for 7.1 OTA. I wonder if we will get a credit for the outage.

They wanted to continue offering the channels as talks continued but Disney made them take them down.
