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

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

        Ya, I Was corrected already. Sorry.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
    • Sushilicious
      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
