09 Apr Dish Agreement With Cbs
Dish has dropped more than 100 channels of the Nexstar Media Group, including WLNS, headquartered in Lansing, THE CBS subsidiary on Channel 6. The previous agreement between Nexstar and Dish ran around 19 .m. Wednesday and it is not clear how quickly access could be restored if a new agreement is reached. CBS` blackout on dish systems is over. CBS Corporation and Dish Network Corporation have entered into a multi-year agreement to promote their own channels across the country, as well as cbs Sports Network and Pop and Smithsonian Channel. The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Don Smith 09 November 2020 I would never have signed with DISH if I had known there would be a blackout on some channels I would like to see. DISH you receive payment for less programming than we have all stated. It is your responsibility to correct this immediately. If not, you should pay our bills until your disputes are resolved. Stop screwing us! We have been customers for a few years and have been asked to renew ourselves to solve the problems. We first lost the fox sport, then HBO, the local program. We intend to terminate our agreement with Dish this week because they are a breach of contract, because they have not complied with the agreement I have made with DISH since 2007 and my prices have continued to rise.
Then I have to call and “negotiate” for a better price and see what “discounts” they have now. Most of the time I go to the Philippines and in general they can`t do much. My lowest bill was $60 in 2007, and then up to almost $150 recently. I negotiated a better price, but I`m stuck in a two-year contract. The local channel 7 KIRO has been since 22 July! He doesn`t seem to be coming back. The problem with DISH is its “steps.” You can`t choose the channels you want. Of the top 250 I buy, there are 2 in one level, 1 in another and maybe a few in the other, so all levels have to pay for 250 channels, of which I only watch less than 25. He`s probably a thug. In this COVID period, we need our local information channels. I`ve heard that DirecTV and Comcast are also bad, so there really isn`t room. I`m thinking about getting out of my contract at the end and leaving with regular TV and an antenna. I`m enjoying some shows that I`d miss, but at $1,200 a year, is it really worth it? I don`t think so.
