Is it just me or is it like every week there is some big dispute between sat tv companies and the networks? Was it two weeks ago it was AMC and now today im watching a movie (Accepted on Comedy Central) on a half screen with the moving subtitles telling me to call whoever to keep this and other channels, WTF? Anybody else getting tired of seein this crap?

Im just glad AMC settled thier dispute cause i wouldve had a meltdown if i couldnt watch The Walking Dead. I dont watch alot of sitcoms, other than 2-1/2 Men, i loved Jericho but we all know what happened there. Seems like everytime a show comes on i like it gets cancelled.

I have directv and its been on all day that tonight they are dropping "26" channels, including MTV, BET, nickelodeon, and comedy central. Who knows what the other 22 channels are. Its pretty rediculous

I think it's when it's contract renewal time. The channels ask for the moon & the satellite companies dig in their heels. The channels start the sky is falling campaign & then the satellite companies counter with how the channels are trying to charge too much.

They always seem to end up coming to an agreement in the 11th hour but yeah it's annoying that they drag us into their contract disputes.

Well if they actually do this, its gonna cost them ALOT of customers. Dish network did away with AMC last month and that would have pissed me off cause im a huge "The walking dead" fan, but this is a new level of stupidity if this actually happens.

As long as they don't screw with Speed Vision, CNN, History Channel, and the Military Channel and I'll be just fine. They can cancel all the others for sure.

CNN? I wish they would cancel the Communist News Network.

I need the SyFy Channel for my scary movies, History Channel, AMC, and Food Network. Boomerang is good too if I'm in the mood for cartoons. Oh yes and DIY.
