    Re: Dish Drops Two Fox Channels

    They've been running commercials here about Dish not carrying Fox for a few weeks but they aren't just being run on Fox. I have DirecTV and I'm glad.

    In the end, Dish will cave I suspect.

    So Fox lying about it is ok with you?

    I don't really care. I haven't seen any of the commercials on Fox about it. It isn't important. I have been seeing commercials running on DirecTV for years bashing on Dish for limiting what their subscribers can see. This is no different.

    As a "cord cutter" I don't care. I can get all the pertinent details of 24/7 news channels on my ROKU box. By that I mean the two hours of "news" that the 24/7 news networks air and then repeat in two hour loops the rest of the day. Who needs DISH or Direct for that when I've got a ROKU box?

    Fox is accusing DTV of censoring them. It's a blatant bold faced lie.

    No clue what a ROKU box is.

    If DTV dropped Fox (or MSNBC or any of the others) I could get them in my car on Sirius XM but it isn't the same for me. I like my big screen telly and I like looking at Steve Hayes when he's on Fox. My husband would panic if he didn't get to see Kimberly Guilfoyle's legs too.

    With live crises, I can especially see the need for live reporting, and where alternative methods still have much work to go to get it right.

    C-SPAN is another problem. As it is the creation of cable companies (and distributed on satellite networks), the only existing legal means you have of getting it is through a legitimate subscription.

    It's getting more persuasive to be a total cutter, but not yet.

    You have not heard of ROKU yet? Good. I'm always delighted when I can share some possibly money saving information. Here is the Wikipage for ROKU:
    Roku - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Here is ROKU's website:
    https://www.roku.com/

    Since TV sets are now being manufactured with built in streaming services like ROKU and Netflix? I'm not sure what their long term viability is but my family has made effective use of these devices for some time now. They pretty much started the "cord cutting" trend and I have saved thousands of dollars using the ROKU 2 and 3 models over the last few years. Fox and all the 24/7 cable news nets have a channel on ROKU. Now the news nets only place some of their daily content on their ROKU channels. Please trust me when I tell you that programming comes out to just a few hours of original content daily! The rest is simply running the same two hour news in a loop for the rest of the day and why pay for that?

    I've been a cord cuter for several years, yet manage to remain marginally acquainted with what is in the news. Besides, I can get Fox News (the others too) on my free to air HD antenna. No need to do anything illegal.
