Please add the Olympic channel to your lineup.

I was quite surprised when they ended the Universal channel and all the sports on it moved to the Olympic channel and I found that Dish had not completed negotiations to add the Olympic channel. Right in the middle of the World Grand Prix tournament we lost coverage!

It is getting harder and harder to urge patience in my household as we wait for Dish to add the Olympic channel and not bail to another provider.

I also would like to have OANN added to the Dish lineup. I recently switched from Direct to Dish and miss the OANN programming.

With your Flex Pack, customers are locked into CNN which used to be the best 7/24 news channel in the world to one of the worst now. CNN is no longer an unbiased news network, it's no a place to go and listen to the host continuously bash those who don't agree with this views (or views their producer is yelling in their ear device). Please stop all the commentary and provide unbiased news/facts. Take a lesson from NPR or the BCC News.

Please allow the customer to pick a news channel or provide an option, otherwise you are forcing the customer to pick another package and lose channels that we love on the Flex Pack or select a news package for an addition $10 per month at at minimum. I called Customer Care and was told there is nothing they can do other than make note of my disdain of CNN. This is just not right nor acceptable solution. Bottomline we should be allowed to select a news channel. I don't think I'm asking for much, oh yeah, HLN (Headline News Network) just as bad or worse then CNN, half the time they do re-enactment stories on mass, serial killers, what has happen to regular reporting of the news????

Channels are arranged contractually, so it’s not likely to happen unless the news channels agree to it, which they won’t because it takes money away from other channels that are owned by the same company.

Registered to the forums here to request that OANN (One America News Network) news channel be added to Dish's lineup. Sure there are other ways to watch it, but it would be nice to have it as a channel.

Las Vegas Golden Knights NHL Hockey

Postby mjssumo1 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 1:24 pm

Per the local newspaper, Las Vegas Golden Knights NHL Hockey can be viewed on Channel 414 in Las Vegas. I tried to tune to this channel and it does not even exist int he guide. I then signed up for the Multi-Sports package as it was supposed to contain the channel that broadcasts these hockey games: It's the AT&T Rocky Mountain Sportsnet (ATTRM) on Channel 412-04. When I signed up for this package, I noticed that I cannot access the hockey games. I communicated with a DISH tech who stated that even though I signed up for the Multi-Sports package and even though the package contains the ATTRM channel, that I cannot view Vegas Golden Knights hockey games because of my Las Vegas-based zip code. I then cancelled the Multi-Sports package.

I see that both DirecTV and Cox Contour now offer the ATTRM channel in Las Vegas and Las Vegas can view the hockey games through these providers. My question is this: As a Las Vegas resident, will I be able to someday view Vegas Golden Knights NHL Hockey on the ATTRM channel?

If they stop asking for extra money for extended coverage, then yes.

What a rip off... When I called Dish to up my contract, I was told...no problem...you get the games. Just go to the channel and you can enjoy the games. BS!!!!

The Knights and Dish need to work this out. Why even have a local time if you can't watch them.
