Dish says that Viacom is being too demanding with prices but Viacom says it'll only raise Dish customer's monthly charge by 6 cents. Meanwhile Dish customers (like myself) are missing
Dish Network wrote:
BET, Comedy Central, MTV, MTV2, MTV Espanol, Nickelodeon, Nick Games & Sports, Noggin, VH1, VH1 Classic and CBS-HD East and West.


Any other Dish subscribers have anything to say?

man i just read all of those and it seems like dish is the bad guy i didnt really get it but my parents bill has jumped up around $3 and im sure 6 cents wont matter. another thing is at the end of one of them he said that if you would like to receive them call somethin or another

any other feelings about this and what are you gonna do i may switch to direct tv because they have a suscribtion channel directly for magic 8)

Direct TV is cheaper, you don't need a credit card and they still have those channels!

There's the Dish press release if anyone's interested. Well, I'm glad they got that fixed so fast. I was wondering what I was gonna do without Comedy Central :shock: .
