Naa. The "official request" list is just a way to note that one customers wants a channel. There will be no follow-up, no notices, and probably no action. Basically it's a black hole to make subscribers feel like they have a voice.

Exactly!

The only way they will carry a channel is if they can get it for the right price, and if they feel that it will either help them gain new subscribers or stop existing subscribers from leaving.

I sure hope not. I'm already paying for about 150 channels I never watch.

Can the same be said for most providers though??

Not sure any of them really listen to us?

The list was setup to make it easier for people to request channels instead of members posting individual messages for channels they want.

When someone goes into that list and sees a channel they want they click on like or thanks which gives a better count to how many SatelliteGuys members want that channel.

This makes it easier for DISH to monitor then trying to monitor individual messages which around here can get lost quick.

The DISH team is indeed monitoring the thread and taking note of what you want. Will it help get new channels? That I don't know.. but it is easier for DISH to see that 125 of our members want FearNet, 33 want beIN sport HD and 4 people want the Bob Haller Conspiracy Channel in 3D. :D

Dosen't look like the thread means much if only 33 want beIN and 125 want FearNet which one is active?

I will get to liking it next time I am actually on my computer. Still waiting for the update to be able to do it on the app.

Last night I saw an ad for Fox Movie channel that now is available in HD. That would be a nice addition.

Well... I'm surprised that so few people are voting. I think ESPNU got the most votes with just over 40. But it's hard to tell without slogging through the whole thread every time you want to see what the tally is. I can't believe DIRT has the time to do that.

I fully expect that every channel requested will be made available ........................... sooooooooon. :tongue:

All seriousness aside, it may not do anything but it can't hurt.

Dish seems to be in a stagnate mode for adding channels this year. They are losing channels, but not adding anything, or anything which the customers have been requesting. I don't recall a year like this from Dish. Perhaps the money they are saving by cutting channels is needed elsewhere this year. Puzzling.
