I have nothing to say to Fox Sports. Dish made the decision not to pay the fee. That's who gets my money; therefore, that's who gets the call. Either they fix it or I bolt. I bet DirectTV would probably pay me to join for as much money as I spend on TV coverage.
Yeah, I'd call up Dish and demand free Center Ice or something...surely they would give it to you. That wouldn't get you Blues games, but at least you'd get a lot of hockey.
I did that last night, the customer retention told me of my 24 month contract (7 months into) and said that the cancellation of Blues hockey was not a valid reason to request free cancellation.
That's insanely stupid.
If I signed up for Dishnetwork service, and one of the reasons I signed up for that service was because of a specific channel or specific events on their service, and then to have them remove that service 7 months into a 2 year contract, to me...they are in breach of contract.
But I am sure they have it written into their contract that they can change channels and services at any time they want...which is horrible customer service.
Man...I would be giving someone an earful. And I'd call back every damn day until something was done to either cancel my account without penalty, or I was given lots of free stuff (Center Ice or Movie stations, etc.)Don't let these asshats bully you guys. This shit isn't fair.
I kept calling DirecTV until I got free Center Ice because of the whole Versus thing.
If the person you are talking to can't help you, ask to talk to their supervisor. Be persistent and calm, but not belligerent.
Seriously. Blues hockey is one of the only reasons I even have cable. Otherwise I would just watch TV online.
