Yeah, I just posted this in the Dish/Viacom forum:
Your CBS and MTV Networks Are Back! Message from Charlie Ergen, CEO of DISH Network
Dear Loyal DISH Network Customers,
I am very pleased to announce that we’ve successfully reached a long-term agreement with Viacom to provide you with CBS and MTV Network channels including MTV, Comedy Central, and Nickelodeon. I am happy to say that this agreement will allow us to continue to provide you the lowest all-digital price everyday.
I understand that it has been a difficult 36 hours to be without these popular channels. We appreciate your patience, your support for DISH Network and your continued business.
As promised, you will receive a $1 credit on your next billing statement. In addition, we would like to thank you for all of your support by sending you a free DISH On Demand Pay-Per-View coupon that will allow you to view upcoming hits like “Cat in the Hat” and “School of Rock.” The coupon will arrive in your April billing statement. Enjoy a movie on us.
Everyone at DISH Network will continue to fight to provide the best possible programming and services at the lowest possible price, every day.
Thank you for your loyalty and thank you for being a DISH Network customer.
What kind of shows are on Nick toons, does anyone have a channel listing?
Yeah, I too would like to know how caved. Right now it seems like a bit of both. Dish extended the contracts on existing channels and added Nick toons, while I assume Dish received a lower increase over the next 5 years.
snathanb, you will still receive a bill in about 30 days. The first bill is times 2 to pay for current and next months programming. I bill you receive in 30 days will be for the following month. Remember you are paying a month ahead. So I see you getting the credit and ppv coupon.
