Dish Network Complaint - Can't Get Games, Even Though You Pay For Them
NAPERVILLE, ILLINOIS -- I used to really like dish, we are huge baseball fans. We decided to get the sports package that included a lot of baseball channels, especially FOX sports Midwest, so we could watch the cardinals play. It has been 2 months since we signed up for the package and have had nothing but problems ever since. We have been unable to get ANY of the games that are on the sports package, they are all constantly blacked out. We have called numerous times and were told that they were working on it. Then they tell me yesterday that it is not available in my area, which is ridiculous because I do live in the Midwest. I do understand that if it is owned by another network, which means the game is showing on ESPN, or something similar it will not be on the alternate channels. After going around and around with the dish people about this, we are just canceling our service with them for half of the price of cancellation fee, and direct TV is here now setting up new service that offers the MLB network.
If another dish company can get you the cames you want dish network should be able to do the same, and actually they should be working on this because I can bet they are going to lose a lot of customers.
