    This happens all the time when negotiations are ongoing. CBS went through this with Comcast recently, as have others.

    It's a tired tactic where the station just gets the provider lit up with phone calls to the point they can't conduct business.

    Whatever. Thankfully Dish network is losing subscribers by the tens of thousands.

    All because they could not make a deal, this has nothing to do with censorship.

    Ah I see, O'Reilly said DISH is censoring your news, NOT censoring FOX news, and he also provided context. Any normal thinking individual wouldn't construe what he said as a lie. You sound foolish for saying so..

    It never ceases to amaze me that some people will embarrass themselves to defend something so obvious to the average person.

    (Thanks for the info, FYI. It's rare to discuss with someone who is really knowledgeable on a subject)
    Bandwidth will continue growing but the throughput you buy is not guaranteed or constant. If they sell 10gb home service then they expect you to use, on average, less than 100mbps.

    Why thankfully? Competition keeps satellite TV rates down. You should want more competition, not less.

    Direct TV is making deals. Comcast is making deals. All other major carriers are making deals. When you offer service all across the nation, if you cannot carry all of the major cable news channels, you do not need to be in business. Dish TV is losing it's ass over this. Whether you like Fox News or not, it is the number one 24 hour cable news network. Dish can make a deal. They are losing enough subscribers to pay the difference.

    Nothing I said is in disagreement with the above, what I said was they could not make a deal. Dish or FoxNews (or the both of them together) being idiots trying to make a deal *still* does not equate to censorship.
