Why does anyone take Dish Network seriously for any reason?

AMC gets a hit show, the hit show makes them more money, the hit shows makes their channel more popular. AMC decides since they are making more money then they have the right to DEMAND even more money for the same content.

Dish sees all this and says no.

Common sense is a very good reason to take certain matters very seriously.

Except Dish has so many more disputes than any other provider.

Can't we assume that maybe it's them?

It is them, they generally take the stance that they do not give in to extortion. "Pay us $$$ because FooCorp did!" is not a valid reason to increase customer rates.

Do they lower customer rates when the content is no longer available?

Nothing really lost since AMC has a couple of watchable "hit" shows and IFC has become garbage (and not in HD). Netflix streaming for anything else.

I thought that Dish might give in like they did with the useless Weather Channel.

With the granularity of the Dish tuner/DVR features I've got nearly 100 channels blocked. One of the best features ever built into a receiver.
