Dish Network bitch slaps NFL Network (and its customers)

If you've got the Dish Network's top 100+ programming and watch NFL Network so you can see Bryan Gumbels butchery of the games you're going to be in for a little surprise.

The Dish Network has removed the NFL Network from the top 100+ and moved it up to the more expensive top 200 package which costs more. (not sure of the pricing)

The articles I read say that Dish Network was pissed that the NFL Network did a simulcast of the Patriots vs. Giants game on its network as well as with CBS and NBC.

Once again I'm left wondering why the fuck I didn't buy DirecTV and NFL Sunday ticket.

I meant to post this a few days ago. Proof that NFLN is vasly overrated, especially for the type of coin they think they are worth.

I rarely watch the nfl network. I never see anything on there that I cant get from ESPN except the occasional NFL game broadcast.

**SKAGG NASTY** Just another 9 second street car.

I don't mind watching Total Access during the pre-season and through the playoffs, but that's really about it. Their game broadcasts suck, and unless the Steelers are playing, I do not watch them.

Its dish network getting back at the NFL. The NFL pulled the Giants Pats game at the end of the season and made it available for all to see. Pissed off DN, I don't blame them.

It sucks for me because I wanted to watch the college combines this week and get a bit of a leg up on the draft. No dice.

I'm giong to wait until just before the start of the season and cancel Dish. I'm going to get DirecTV and NFL Sunday ticket.

That was some bullshit! I ended up upgrading to the Top 200 so they won . I wanted FSN southwest for the mavs so that more or less sealed the deal for me.

Deion I can tolerate. Everyone needs a village idiot to laugh at every once in a while.

Bryant Gumbel is the one that grates on me.

NFL Network isn't the best channel, but it has a few decent programs. Total Access before the season is ok, and the fantasy updates are decent.

One program I will applaud is the America's Game series.

Oh and I think I already had the 200+ package since '05 so I can't argue either way!

Well, if Mr. Evil doesn't have DTV at that time, I'll take you up on the offer. Otherwise I've gotta stick with my bro

Why pay for any satellite when you can get it with an FTA receiver and a file uploading software?
