    DISH NETWORK / channel 9/FSC/WTF

    I think I pretty much have had it with the DISH network... I can't take it anymore... did I do something wrong to deserve not getting the "right channel 9" KCRG for the Cyclone Network yesterday ????... I don't understand... and I have'nt had the Fox Sports Network since last October... I know now this is'nt probably the time to talk about an armed insurrection , but I am flat out ****** off... especially since I have to, and can only, tape the channel I am watching, can only watch the same channel on every TV in the house, and pay a **** load of money for things that don't come up CYCLONE anymore.... I have many other gripes too ... anybody have some other ideas or maybe thoughts on DIRECT TV... ????... I'm now almost at the "Have Guns, Will Travel" mantra to DISH network headquarters.... please lower my blood pressure and keep me out of prison Cyclone fans....

    You'll either need to buy a separate box for the other TV's or go to Cable. I've had no issues with Dish Network and was able to watch the game, as it was on KCRG 9.2, which is a problem with KCRG and not Dish Network.

    if you wanted to watch last night's game (or any CTN games), you would've needed a $7 antenna to get KCRG 9.2

    Dish Network for three years, never had any problems. Not like that.

    Because KCRG elected to but it on their back-up channel. You would have had the same problem with Directv.

    Re: DISH NETWORK / channel 9/FSC/WTF

    I have Dish and watched the game on regular programming. When I need to watch a game such as the Virginia game, I just called a listed 800 number (get on the internet Dish site to find it) and asked the voice on the other end which channel was carrying the ISU/Virginia. They will look it up for you and tell you the cost. In that case it was some monthly package for $7 that includes about 10 different Fox Sports regional channels from the East to West Coast. I will probably call in and cancel it at the end of the month unless I find that their are other non-Big 12 games that interest me. Anyway, for $7 its pretty cheap to see even one game. I have paid for football games this way in the past on occasion. I have no problems with Dish. Just get on the phone and find a live body on the other end. Do not try to do it by automation, which is an option. You are evidently past the 20's like me.

    because they thought a re run of the bachelor would get more views than the basketball game.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    If anyone is looking for a prime example of the stereotypical American that flies off the deep end over something and blames somebody else for something they clearly just don't understand, here you go.

    1. Not Dish's fault
    2. As previously said, you have had Fox Sports for a while now. Feel free to look before you yell.
    3. If you had used the search option or simply looked at the basketball section of the message board you would see multiple threads about the game being on 9.2. You might not have come across so "slow" that way.

    I'd be mad too if I were you -- mad at MYSELF.

    It's not Dish Network's fault that KCRG is choosing to show the games on their alternate channel, which is only available over the air. For $6.99 you can go to Walmart and buy a set of rabbit ears, plug them into the back of your Dish Network box and be good to go. Or, you could pony up $100, get ESPN Full Court, and get every game no matter what channel it's on, even if it's Mediacom 22.

    You say you haven't had FSN since last October. All Dish Network customers get a regional FSN channel. It's not their fault you can't find it. And for $7 a month you can get ALL the regional FSN channels by purchasing the sports pack.

    I'm sorry to be a jerk, but I've read your post a couple times over and I can't find a single issue you are having that can't be rectified with minimal effort and cost. These are not Dish Network's issues, they're yours.
