Mens Outdoors and Dish Network

16 posts in this topic

I'm a Dish Network subscriber and if I am going to watch a hunting or fishing show I always turned on Mens Outdoors and Recreation channel. I tried last night, lo and behold they say it is no longer available on Dish. I flip up and about 4 other channels were taken off, although they were none I ever watched (shop at home channels).

Anybody know why they just disappeared?

The Media Group (TMG) is currently involved in contract negotiations with DISH Network, and as a result, DISH Network has removed eight of TMG’s channels from its lineup, including Men’s Outdoors & Recreation and Beauty & Fashion channels. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes our customers, and we are in active negotiations to restore these channels. Viewers can still enjoy our original programming and enthusiast shows on DIRECTV, Time Warner Cable and other select regional cable TV networks.

The seven new HD channels coming next month plus Fox Sports North in HD which was released last week make up for it.

Ya, but I have found it is difficult to find a cable connection out on the lake in my fish house. The dish works great.

I dissagree Ozzie. I've gone from comcrap to directv. I went back to comcrap because they had a package deal for $99 and they had dvr's coming. After a year they hiked the price and it wasn't worth it. Picture is way better on dish that cable. Mine on my house goes out maybe two or three times a year. Most of the time it's for 10 minutes or less. We have basic cable because with comcrap if you want the cable modem and don't have cable it's $10 more, but if you buy the $8 basic cable (for the rest of my rooms) you save two bucks. Just another way of the monopoly stickin' it to you. Give me more choices on cable companies and I might go back. Customer service for me is 10 better with directv then I ever had with cable. My .02 cents anyhow.

He does have a good point on Dishnetworks customer service its the worst, I have both Direct Tv and Dishnetwork and Direct TV is much better in that Department.

If your losing your satellite signal in the wind the dish is not mounted or aligned correctly.

I have a buddy that had some issues with Dish Network. He asked for a supervisor each time and ended up getting a free DVR out of the deal. Just an idea. I may have to try that myself. Is Dish ever going to get the Sportsmans Channel? We have a new phone/cable/internet provider coming here that provides the Sportsmans Channel, plus The Outdoor Channel in HD. Guess what I will be doing after it is up and running?

Out in the country where you have no other option Dish is great. Just pony up the $1.99 a month and get the outdoor channel. The channel that's being discussed wasn't that great anway. Half the time it wasn't even hunting or fishing.

yeah that channel wasn't the greatest outdoor channel....but on the dish going out when it is windy or stormy they said this is typical......we have had to replace the main reciever 3times in the last 2 months because the fan runs 24/7.....so I have had to set-up 3 recievers and since we are not land lined we have to call and let's just say it is hard to get a person that A: knows what they are talking about and B: is patient to work with you.........I am in the country so this is one of the few options I have and if this reciever goes bad I might look elsewhere......oh well

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
