We all knew that Barack Obama had the dead vote tied up, but I was surprised to find out that they also worked for that evil corporation, AMC Networks.
Here's what the real story is, according to AMC:
DISH’s decision to drop AMC, WEtv, IFC and Sundance Channel had nothing to do with our fees, or our shows. In fact, unlike almost every other dispute you see between providers and programmers, and despite DISH’s misleading claims to the contrary, this is not about fees.
The simple truth is that DISH is using their consumers as pawns to attempt to gain leverage in a lawsuit involving an old and unrelated business venture that has nothing to do with AMC, nothing to do with our shows or fees, and certainly nothing to do with DISH subscribers, who just want to watch the shows they love and are paying DISH for. You will not see any AMC Networks’ shows on DISH any time soon.
In other words, since DISH’s reason for depriving you of AMC programming is based on a lawsuit that won’t be resolved for a long time, this problem won’t be solved shortly, unlike other disputes between programmers and providers, which typically are resolved in a matter of days (weeks at most).
If you want to watch “Breaking Bad”,” Hell on Wheels”, “The Walking Dead”, and “Mad Men”, you will have to switch TV providers. We can help you do that. The good news is, every other cable, phone and satellite company — except DISH — carries AMC in their basic package.Apparently, DISH and AMC are having a dispute that will be settled in the courts.
And isn't handy that Barack Obama can give these zombies some shovel ready jobs in time for voting season!
