Default HBO and Cinamax gone from Dish

Well it had to come, AT&T whom owns HBO, Cinamax, and also Direct TV has shut down service for HBO and Cinamax channels to Dish Network, this in retaliation for them (Dish) speaking out against the Direct TV/AT&T merger.

I find this extremely unfair to Dish customers but what can we do about it???

It's not Dish's fault, they had a right to speak up against the merger, a merger that in my opinion would be the start of a very big monopoly.

I think the FCC should step in.

Or find a way to boycott AT&T.

What do you all think?

Switch to D*.

It's their party and they can invite whomever they like. Is it "fair"? Yup! That's corporate business.

IMHO... start all the petitions and hope for the best. Money and subscribers is all that matters.

D* would love to see E* go bankrupt and sell the satellites to a bidder.

So much for the old Dish buying DirecTV deal?

Terry, if you have a Roku and subsequently Hulu on it, you can get HBO Now through them for $6 a month for 6 months, then it goes back to $15 a month, or you can drop it.

It maybe a very long wait...I may go the Roku route....At least Dish is crediting back the charges, I may be able to afford it.

We dropped Dish a long while back because of the charges. Then went back to Cox cable because they were much cheaper than Dish for the same channels. Now thanks to streaming on the Roku, we gave up cable (except for the internet).

If you sign up for Sling TV (sling.com) and pay 2 months worth of bill, they give you a free Roku. They carry 40 cable channels and have different costing plans for whichever channels you want. Take a look.
