    Fox is now back on Dish Network. However they probably will not get many back the tens of thousands of subscribers they lost to Direct TV. When I dropped Mediacom cable a couple months back, I considered Dish Network. I am glad I chose Direct TV instead.

    Here is the crazy thing. $5 of every cable subscription goes to ESPN each month. Seems like it should be an premium channel at that price.

    No....just a lack of common sense on Dish Network's part.

    Well, if Fox is trying to give them a raw deal, then if I were Dish I wouldn't just let them. Why should Dish cave?
