    Not just that but Fox Sports North as well...really freaking some people out up here with Wild hockey being shown on FSN most of the winter. Seems like Dish is playing a risky game of chess.

    Re: DishNetwork losing FX?

    Kinda makes that sports package worthless. If you are under contract with Dish, would this be grounds for you to cancel without penalty?

    Re: DishNetwork losing FX?

    But...but...it is the same TV except for a lower price. Why would you ever pay more for TV?

    If you lose FX, it will only be for a short time. If you switch, DirecTV will be in the same boat next year if not with FX then some other channel.

    It's just the way of the world...

    Re: DishNetwork losing FX?

    Well I am up watching the Ryder Cup and its suspended, so I just checked and Hannibal is on. They must have worked something out.

    --Btw, anyone that watches Sunny and The League...both were hilarious.

    Re: DishNetwork losing FX?

    Looks as if all the sports channels are gone, but they are offering all the other sports channels THAT I PAY EXTRA FOR!! Either way, FX is still on air, which is all I care about since the Cubs are on CSN and WGN....wait the Cubs are done, damnit.

    Re: DishNetwork losing FX?

    Looks like it's time to change providers. Just checked the sports channels, they inform me that I should contact the Fox people to get the channels back. Fat chance of that...

    Re: DishNetwork losing FX?

    Kinda funny how Dish was ripping DirecTV just last year for not having Versus. Let's see - DirecTV not having Versus (which it has back) or Dish not having FX as well as a whole slew of sports channels? As the commercial says, "When you compare the two, DirecTV wins every time."

    Re: DishNetwork losing FX?

    According to GetWhatIPaidFor :: Get What I Paid For DishNetwork no longer carries FX. But, I just checked and I'm still getting it.
