Woo, I thought it was just a matter of time before Dish caved in. I ended it up waiting it out because I figured Dish had no leverage and they were losing subscribers by the minute. I guess pissed off football/baseball fans calling in about losing the Fox affiliates on Nov. 1st > pissed off hockey/basketball fans calling in about losing the FSN's on Oct. 1st .
Now if only they would have more of the Anaheim games on in HD on Dish Center Ice.
It seems stupid that on Directv, they have almost all games in HD on Center Ice, but on Dish they have barely any.
It makes sense when you realize Dish saves a lot of money on capacity/bandwith by broadcasting less HD stuff . I remember last season a lot of the Dodgers HD feeds on Prime/FSNW would be "join in progress" and wouldn't start broadcasting until the 4th/5th inning.
