    Hey

    I have Dish Network and I called them yesterday regarding OLN.

    The customer assistant told me that negotiations with OLN are ongoing and that they expect it to be back on the air in the near future. I wasnt sure if I should believe the assistance because it might just be something to say to a customer to silence my criticsim or can any other Dish Network customers back me up on them being told the same thing?
     
  2. I hope they get it on before the playoffs start..

    I emailed them and complained a long time ago about it and all they told me was some BS about how they have other great channels like OLN that i can watch instead.

    Dish Network has like 12 million subscribers...how can it even be POSSIBLE not to have OLN during the playoffs? Especially when the NHL is already hurting for ratings.

    I have Dish Network, and I called them told them that one way or another I'm watching the NHL playoffs, and if it's with DirecTV, then so be it.
