Frequently Asked Questions

Learn how DISH is taking a stand over increased fees… and why switching isn't the answer!

In order to be able to provide you with your programming, we must have agreements in place with channel owners. We work day in and day out to make sure there are standing agreements in place so your service is not interrupted. When contracts come up for expiration, we work for new deals that guarantee you'll have your channels for a long time to come.

However, sometimes these channel owners try to force us into unreasonable contract terms - such as extreme rate increases that we cannot agree to. At DISH, we constantly work to bring you programming at a great value.

We work hard to ensure that we are able to reach agreements, however, if channel owners cannot negotiate reasonably, and a new agreement is not reached, we no longer have the rights to carry this content. It's unfortunate that channel owners choose to block programming important to you. We much prefer for negotiations to be resolved behind the scenes, so you're never directly affected.

We must have agreements with owners of every channel that we provide and every contract expires at varying times. We're happy to say that we have agreements with hundreds of channel owners which allow you to watch your favorite programming uninterrupted.

Unfortunately, there are instances when the programmers use removal of your programming as a negotiation tactic while we work toward a new agreement.

Unfortunately, disputes between pay-TV providers and channel owners are not uncommon within the pay-TV industry. All pay-TV providers face disputes with channel owners. In fact, just last year there were over 200 channel blackouts across the pay-TV industry.

That is why switching your pay-TV provider is not the answer. Switching gives channel owners validation of what they are demanding and encourages them to raise rates. That ultimately drives up the cost for everyone. Sticking with DISH tells channel owners that they need to be reasonable and fair.

Preguntas frecuentes

Aprende cómo DISH está tomando una posición en contra el aumento de las tarifas… ¡y por qué cambiarte de proveedor no es la mejor decisión!

Para proporcionarte tu programación, debemos tener acuerdos con los propietarios de los canales. Nos esforzamos todos los días para asegurarnos de que existan acuerdos permanentes, y así tu servicio no se vea interrumpido. Cuando los contratos se vencen, trabajamos para obtener nuevas ofertas que garanticen tus canales por largo tiempo.

Sin embargo, a veces los propietarios de estos canales intentan obligarnos a negociar con términos contractuales irrazonables, como aumentos extremos de tarifas que no podemos aceptar. En DISH, trabajamos constantemente para ofrecerte programación de gran valor.

Trabajamos arduamente para garantizar que podamos llegar a acuerdos, sin embargo, si los propietarios de los canales no pueden negociar de manera razonable y no se llega a un nuevo acuerdo, no tendremos los derechos para transmitir ese contenido.

Es desafortunado que los propietarios del canal elijan bloquear la programación que es importante para ti. Preferimos que las negociaciones se resuelvan de manera confidencial, para que nunca te afecten directamente.

Debemos tener acuerdos con los propietarios de cada canal que proporcionamos y cada contrato vence en momentos diferentes. Nos complace decir que tenemos acuerdos con cientos de propietarios de canales que te permiten ver tu programación favorita sin interrupciones.

Desafortunadamente, hay instancias en las que los programadores usan la eliminación de su programación como una táctica de negociación mientras trabajamos por un nuevo acuerdo.

Desafortunadamente, los desacuerdos entre los proveedores de TV y los propietarios de los canales no son infrecuentes dentro de la industria de la televisión de pago. Todos los proveedores de TV de pago enfrentan desacuerdos con los dueños de los canales. De hecho, el año pasado hubo más de 200 apagones de canales en toda la industria de la televisión de pago.
