Anyone with a current Dish account please tell me if the missing channels have returned? If not what is the recourse? Thanks Max

If you mean the Fox locals, yes. I'm not missing any of the channels on my Dish that I have programmed on my favorites lists now.

I am not aware of any missing channels. All the major cable providers, satellite TV providers and anyone else rebroadcasting other folks channels have financial disputes from time to time. It can happen again at any time to any channels. It always gets settled.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

The Fox RSN's, now owned by Sinclair, are still off and apparently still in negotiation. Sinclair just settled with AT&T/Direct, so there may be hope yet...

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a few channels missing with a message stating they were removed by networks. They have all returned to our Dish channel line up since, I have had sat tv for decades and these issues are common to both Dish and Directv. Not much anyone subscriber can do other than cut the cord or jump over to the other competing satellite service. Calling and complaining falls on deaf ears for the most part, in due time they usually come terms and channels return to line up.

I don't hear of the cable networks having to fight to keep channel costs low. I can't understand why they see satellite providers as cash cows to be milked for all they're worth. Here in the St Louis area, we lost Fox Sports Midwest on Dish that was carrying the Cardinals BB games. We weren't able to see the games toward the end of the season. Then I saw an article about viewership number were down - well doah!

The local channels are also playing this same game. Why aren't they trying to increase their viewership numbers? They broadcast free signal over the airways but many can't get them good enough to watch without cable or satellite TV. Seems to me they'd be happy their programming was being carried to more households so they could charge more for their incessant ads.

I suspect it is a "negotiating situation" with Dish and the provider as has already been mentioned but, have you checked on your Guide for "All Subscribed" and then see if the stations appear? I've been fooled by this one a couple of times-especially when moving out of the previous spot beam.
