KTBS 3 Dropped From Dish Network Lineup
 
KTBS went off the air for thousands of Dish Network subscribers after the station was removed from Dish Network's programming lineup. The two companies reportedly could not come to terms on a fee agreement.

Dish Network sucks anyway... This story is more proof. This Christmas was my one year aniversary with Directv. Some of you may rememeber how DN missed or fouled out 5 appointments for my daughters TV hookup, including one on Christmas Day! They outsource to morons and offshore jobs every chance they get. Like Pokey says, this sort of thing happens with them every few years.

I have had Dish Network for years and I like it. The picture is great and the line up too. Every now and then we have had a service problem but not much. I have cable too at the house and the feed sux and programing just ok at best. rhertz you have bad fung sway :D Now ktbs just reads the net like I do and adds there help a brother comments for free. The weather is not that good and we all know that Ed likes gerbils so no news there either. :laugh: I bet ktbs will come to their knees very soon.

Isaac, KTBS is my favorite station. I am on cable now and if they dropped KTBS I would find a provider that has it. Our cable company is Suddenlink and I can't stand them, but I will stay as long as they have the local channels.

rhertz 01-02-2008 09:13 PM

I thought KTBS and other local channels were now available in HD for free over local airwaves with a set of HD rabbit ears?? (and an HD tuner equipped TV)

I watch KTBS too Isabella. All they do is read the national news from their computer and the weather man copies the local on the eights. Oh the news part is who shot Tyrone and another drive by shooting. I get plenty of news with out Ed and Ed at KTBS telling their slant on things. I hope DISH hold them over the fire until the Ed's choke :eek:

I dont watch KTBS, but for all you dish net folks out there: Come on over to Directv! The water is fine! I've had Directv for about 4 years now and I love it-especially the DVR:clap::clap:

I think Isabella is referring to other programs on Channel 3 and not just the news. The network has many good programs like Grey's Anatomy for instance.:)

I had DirecTV from 1998-2007 and I only (reluctantly, I can't stand Comcast) switched to cable because my Tivo was dying and DirecTV couldn't offer me a new one at any price. All they had was their own off-brand DVR that is a turd to use once you've gotten used to a good one.

Yep I love my Directv DVR. And I think it has HD antenna input for local channels like KTBS so those programs can be recorded as well...

Did they ever come out with a HD tivo? I checked about a year ago and there was no such thing.

Got one over a year ago or so. it's a DirecTV/Tivo unit

it's my understanding DirecTV doesn't carry 'tivo' anymore, although my two tivo units at home work fine, one standard and one HD.
