I lost MTV and Nick today. Dish Network vs Viacom. Pisses me off. I pay like 60 or more dollars a month and they take away 8 channels. WTF. I am so tired of being overcharged. I wish they offered digital cable in my area - I am getting sick of it. :(

anyone else feel my pain?

I saw on the bottom of my tv that they may be taking away some channel. I haven't checked to see if I lost any. That sucks for you big time and I would be very angry if they did that to me.

Direct TV is next. Their contract is in a few months and Direct is owned by the same company EcoStar. This means bye bye CBS, ALL NICk, VH1, MTV, MTV2, Comedy Central.

I want to cry I'm so mad!

Well I'm more educated now. Direct isn't the same as Dish. Different Companies. If they don't resolve this soon I'm going to Direct. Its not necessarily about loosing the channels - its about paying for something and them loosing the main programming. All we have are crappy shopping channels anymore :(

Well, to make Dish Network seem a little better, they didnt sign with Viacom(owner of CBS, Nick, Comedy Central, ect.) because Viacom was overcharging, which meant higher prices for you.

Too bad you can't get Charter there, it's a really great cable company(High Speed Internet and High-Definition Channels too). We still have all of those channels though(if I lost TechTv and Nick though, I wouldnt really watch any tv at all).

(On a side note, I wonder why I remember all that about Viacom, but I still cant remember the difference between Communitive Property and the Assosiative Property..)

I suggest you move to DirectTV since we don't lose any channels... only DishNetwork and Ecowhatever do... besides... I only pay 30 for all the channels I need(not including starz or any of that crap). I got my spongebob, I got my Jay-Z, twista, 50 cent, I got my Half Baked... ahhh the good life:p

I really have no time for TV. I catch the English soccer every now and then, occasionally watch some news/documentaries(usually by accident), but that's it ! Work takes up a huge chuunk of my day.... When I'm not doing stuff with my partner or out with friends, I am either on the ps2/GC or on here with all you clowns.... and yes, every night before I go to sleep, I read(new Timothy Zahn novel out now!), or play my GBA(Final Fantasy Tactics, Sonic,TW Golf) :p

*snickers*

Y'know, I wonder if thats the whole reason everyone hates us. Others have to live in poverty-stricken cities with only a rifle as law, meanwhile we have trouble living without Survivor and Spongebob. :p
