Re: Called Dish and complained Want to put an end to this extortion the networks are playing with the carriers? There is ONE law I'd LOVE to see.. the carriers should have to treat their contracts the same as health insurance does their "open enrollments'... meaning, that a carrier, in this case AMC, has their own version of an "open enrollment" where all their agreements term at the same time and re open for negotiation. If AMC TRULY needs to raise their rates, then they will HAVE to negotiate fairly AND it stops them from playing providers against each other (a double dipping as I see it) AND using consumers as pawns. (I'd also like to see an end to these crawls and ANY public conversation while negotiations are going on).. If AMC needs a raise, then all providers would be seeing the same pain to some degree. It also stops, like I said, AMC from saying "hey dish users, go to DirecTV.. and the provider using financial encouragement to get customers to defect... again, it's extortion.
