  • CBS gone from Dish

    Every year or so, Tegna, the company that owns the CBS stuff on Dish TV and Dish start squabbling about the fee Dish must pay. This year, they couldn't reach and agreement and CBS is gone. This means NFL games, Madam Secretary, Hawaii Five O, Bluebloods, etc. won't be back until they get this sorted out. Dish has a spot on where the channel was begging customers to call Tegna and complain to try and pressure them into making a deal that Dish can live with. I will be going up to the RV to watch the shows we like via OTA until this is sorted. I really don't want to buy an OTA DVR but it might come to that if this holding the customers hostage situation becomes more frequent (as threatened by Dish in their spot on the local CBS channel space).

        If you have Dish set up for your trailer, after some research, you can buy an OTA adapter that will allow you to watch/record (2 tuners) OTA shows through the Dish receiver. The only issue was that if you have a powered amp (as all RVs do), I think the adapter will heat up based on Amazon.com feedback. Almost 20 percent of feedback indicated the adapter got too hot to touch and many failed. Other folks claimed no such problem but they seemed to have OTA antennas that are home based and likely didn't have voltage coming down on the antenna run and plugging into the adapter. A DC block is about $10 and the Dish OTA adapter is about $70. Since this seems to be a common cycle, might have to get my trailer set up with even more junk; as it is, will have to go up and just watch stuff on CBS live for the time being. The TX / Okie game just came on so I am out for about three hours. If the worst happens and I never come back, check the blotch in my driveway as I jumped off the roof! HOOK 'EM HORNS!

          over the years Direct has had the same issues .... they'll get it worked out because the bottom line is both outfits are losing money .... one will blink and service will be restored .... as to the Horns, not so good.... they ran into an OK team that was hitting on all cylinders

              Actually they penalized themselves out of the game. That and turnovers.... They scored 2 TD's before OK got untracked.

                They do that every year or so here with Direct. I'm not getting involved in their conflict cause it will just jack my price up. I just switch over to my ota antenna.
