Dish Network Drops AMC, Sundance....

Once again, channels that offer award winning hit shows like Mad Men, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, The Killing and Indie films are being axed!  If you love WeTV, Sundance, IFC or AMC you'll have to find another cable provider that carries them.  I was livid that yet again, greed has raised its' ugly head and who gets screwed? The customers and fans! 

Trial is set for Sept. 18th re: a breach of contract between a subsiderary of DISH VOOM HD and DISHNET; Courts denied DISH NET's appeal, so they have decided to remove AMC.  They have also suggested dropping additional favorite networks and shows offered by major satellite & cable providers.  Per Nielsen Media Research- AMC released this statement: 

“AMC Networks has some of the most acclaimed programming on television, with shows like “Mad Men,” “The Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad.” In fact, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” is the number one scripted drama with DISH subscribers."

If you're as upset as I am about this please let them know!  The website listed below also has a provider locator and using your zip code, can tell you which cable company carries these channels.  If you do switch providers, be sure to lodge a formal complaint and tell them why you are cancelling their service.

Time for fans to rise up and BE HEARD!!!!

  1. At one point wasn't DISH considering dropping CW? CW was running commercials about it trying to get people to call DISH. In the end they reached a deal however.

    This is the problem when you have gate keepers. This is also why we must avoid gatekeepers on the World Wide Web.
