I agree...anybody who wants sports has long left
Not exactly, maybe the other options are cable which is $40 more a month basically, or garbage DirecTV. As options like streaming aren't a option.

If they want sports, they are almost completely gone. If sports are cool, but they don’t find themselves watching to often(this is the group I fall in), there is no point switching.

This is where I fall right now. I was bummed when NBC Sports Chicago was dropped. I am an NFL, College Football, Cubs, and Bulls fan, and have no problems catching a Blackhawks/White Sox game. But the reality is that at the stage of life I am in right now, I don't have time to watch every Bulls game or Cubs game. I do miss some of the sports talk on NBC Sports Chicago, but you can catch it all on demand on the podcast. For my viewing needs, Dish has all the major sporting events - weekly big games, playoffs, etc, and that works well for me. Yeah, anyone who is a die-hard fan where they make it a priority to watch every game - I feel like they would have moved on from Dish at this point.

Amazon streaming will probably be an option sooner or later
That does nothing, unless Amazon is also going to build their own internet company. Streaming services aren't a option with poor high speed internet choices like Mediacom or CenturyLink.

Looks like Dish is done with the RSN's. Today's uplink removed the slate from my VIP 211k - no more NBC Sports Chicago placeholder slate.

We definitely get how much the channel negotiations impact our members, zippyfrog. We are continuously evaluating the programming we carry on our service to ensure our customers are getting the best value for the content they receive.

We don't know if FOX Regional Sports Channels will return, however, we remain open to a fair agreement with Sinclair, the owner of these channels, to carry their programming for our customers.
