There's a slate up on the normal RAI Italia channel informing that RAI is no longer available on DISH, apparently another dispute about pricing.

Awesome.

I belong to an Italians men’s club and their meeting is this Friday.

The wives are going to be pissed. Most Italian households this is what the wives watch all day while cooking.

Time to bring the Directv and Comcast literature

RAI is government owned channels, So I fail to understand the pricing issue, but then again I think they sell the rights to that channel to a distributor who then be the deals with TV providers. Just Greed. But then Mediaset is probably a better TV channel.

Was this another exclusive "coup" by DirecTV or some other MVPD like TV Japan arrangement that locks out Dish?
