  • Damn Dish Network for losing AMC. If its not back by October, I am switching to Directv

    • With Breaking Bad starting this next weekend, I think we’re switching this week. We’ve been loyal Dish customers for over 10yrs. Makes me sick to leave and especially lose what’s on my DVR I haven’t watched yet. Directv has a better deal money wise for us right now anyway. Sorry Dish!

      • I never have watched Breaking Bad but hope to one day but I will stick it out until it gets closer to October because I am praying that AMC comes back. I love Dish Network for the most part and I hate the hassle of having to switch cable providers

        • It’s really a great show, Breaking Bad. We didn’t start watching on tv until last summer and spent a few weeks catching up via Netflix. We’re very excited for it to start, sad it’s the last season. The lawsuit between Dish and AMC doesn’t go to court until Sept., I have little faith it will be restored by the start of Walking Dead. Ya never know. I guess if we go ahead with the switch maybe Dish will offer a reward to switch back lol ;)

      • I have DirecTV and a while back this happened to them. First the with local Fox channel (Glee, AI) and then with FX (right in the middle of AHS) and NatGeo. One got resloved by the deadline and the other after a couple of weeks. Maybe this will happen with Dish…good luck.

    • I’m ready to switch cable providers. Comcast is too expensive! So I need to avoid Dish Network. Good to know. My only worry is I think DirectTV will eventually start pulling that crap of getting rid of my favorite channels too, they both seem to do that periodically.
