Hi there Harbrerob, my name is Kimberly and I form part of the Social Media Department with DISH. I see why you’re upset. DISH’s contract with Raycom Media, the owner of your local station, has expired. Raycom has demanded that DISH pay four times more than we paid under our previous agreement, which is unreasonable. We remain open to negotiating to reach an agreement. Find out more at www.dishvaluepledge.com. Please know that we would hate to lose you as a valued customer and are truly working hard to reach a fair agreement.

Hi, my name is Cheri Torres and I work on the Social Media Team at DISH. Our contract with Raycom Media has expired and we no longer have the rights to carry their channels. We offered to pay the same rates as our competitors for the same content, but instead Raycom demanded we pay unreasonable rate increases, which are four times more than we paid under the previous agreement. Switching your TV provider is not the answer. All pay-TV providers face disputes with program providers. In fact DirecTV and other have gone through similar issues with other programmers in the last year. Switching only encourages programmers to raise rate demands and drives up the costs for everyone.

I also lost Fox 6 in B'ham. Dish said to contact Raycom, they said Dish was offered the same rate as other company's . Someone is lying! I don't care who, I just want the Fox network. If this cannot be resolved quickly I will do whatever I need to do to get it.

I also lost Fox 29 in Vero Beach, FL and I'm ready to change carriers. I have been a loyal Dish customer for 7 years and have been completely satisfied with my service. However, there are many shows that I watch on Fox and, I for one, would be willing to pay a dollar or two more just to be able to continue watching them. Please try to settle this before the fall season of shows begins.

I'm in a wheelchair and my husband lost his job. I had/have gmail. DISHNET hacked into my personal gmail account and now I can't open any email accounts! Don't bother to reply.., I can't open any email account, not on hotmail or yahoo especially my personal gmail account, which is partnered with Dish!
