    Yeah me too. I'm really worried. :(

    I hope it's just some false marketing by DirecTV or Time Warner.

    Wow, I just switched over to DirecTV after 3 years with Dish Network. I hope they come to an agreement, though. That would really suck for Rocket fans.

    I dont see why DISH wouldn't work this out. They are sure to lose a lot of customers due to the lack of home sports games. It hits hockey, baseball, and basketball fans. Not to mention the Fox Sports Saturday college football.

    You can easily use a proxy. Either set one up using IP, or use an ad supported like surfwithease.com

    This would be completely unacceptable. I would switch to Direct TV. DISH needs to hire some new negotiators or something because I believe this happened in the past with the League Pass as well.
