There is no difference between Viacom wanting to bundle several channels together so you must carry them all, and DISH Network wanting to bundle several channels together so I must pay for them all. You've raised your rates. They're raising their rates. What's the difference?
Why do you think that by taking away the programming I want, I will accept your side of the story and gripe to Viacom for you?
Unless you care to return my monthly rates to where they were when I first subscribed, and then unbundle the channels I'm not interested in and charge me less, accordingly, I'm not interested in participating further in your corporate wars.
Saying you'll credit me a dollar for CBS and a dollar for the MTV Networks is insulting. I'm paying you a monthly amount for a package of programming. If you fail to provide me that package of programming, you should not charge me any of that monthly amount.
