If Dish drops CBS in the middle of football season, that will be a massive poison pill.i'm sure the Showtime/The Movie Channel channels will join the other CBS owned stations and channels that will be affected by the impending dispute between Dish and CBS that is gonna be a nastier dispute due to the features of the Hopper DVR. i woun't be surprise if the Hopper is another reason why Dish and Turner's dispute is continuing.
this is the double whammy that could be the "Dish killer"
if i'm the owner of Dish, i would go ahead and drop these channels and "sallow the poison pill" since the future of TV is gonna be internet on-demand streaming and live webstreams of major events on several internet connected devices like Smart phones, smart TVs, tablets, computers, those internet connected streaming boxes or HDMI connected things that is wifi, Blu-Ray players with a way to connect to the internet..
they have beforeImagine paying for Showtime then they remove it, but it wasn't adjusted in your bill as if you're still paying for it.
Dish wouldn't go that far on it's customers would they?
I posted that showing that Dish and its retailers have a history of lying to get customers. The lawsuit didnt settle out until April 2014.Seriously....

That article you linked was more than 5 years ago.
I posted that showing that Dish and its retailers have a history of lying to get customers. The lawsuit didnt settle out until April 2014.
I can google a bunch of more lawsuits that Dish has settled over deceptive trade practices.
Law360, New York (August 12, 2011, 8:27 PM ET) -- Dish Network LLC on Friday was hit with a class action in Illinois court alleging that automatically deducting cancellation fees from bank accounts containing Social Security funds invalidates that provision of the company's service agreement.
The plaintiff, Jacqueline Townsel, whose main income is a monthly Social Security payment of $941, said Dish automatically took out $575 in cancellation and unreturned equipment fees from her bank account after her service was disconnected in late 2010.
DISH Network, one of the nation's largest providers of satellite television service, faces a Federal Trade Commission lawsuit alleging that it illegally called millions of consumers who had previously asked telemarketers from the company or its affiliates not to call them again.
The calls allegedly violated provisions of the FTC's Telemarketing Sales Rule that state that even if a consumer is not on the National Do Not Call Registry, a telemarketer may not call him or her again if the consumer specifically asks to be placed on the company's own entity-specific do-not-call list.
First off my disabilities are from serving this nation, so that you, I and all Americans can have freedoms afforded to them by the Bill of Rights.Your ax grinding is getting old. These old claims are common for most big companies and are mostly committed by unscrupulous national retailers. Have you checked DirecTV's telemarketing legal history? It ain't pretty.
You're still working for Dish right? They're not so bad that you won't take their money. I think that's called hypocrisy. If I was Dish you wouldn't be working for me anymore. And please don't start that protected class disability crap. IMO if you're healthy enough to be working and complaining about how bad you've got it then you shouldn't be eligible for disability.
