  • NHL on Outdoor Life Network

    Courtesy comment - this applies only to Dish Network customers.

    I had never heard of OLN until earlier this year when they bought the rights to broadcast a bunch of NHL games. I get TV through Dish Network so to get OLN I'd have to subscribe to Dish's premiere package, the Top 180. I already pay for the Top 120 package just to get Fox Sports Network, and at least 55 of the extra 60 channels in Top 120 are junk that we never watch. I cannot justify paying for another 55+ crap Top 180 channels to get OLN so I sent Dish Network an email on their web site requesting that OLN be moved to the Top 120 package.

    If you are also a Dish Network subscriber and a hockey fan, please take a moment to do the same thing. I figure if enough people ask them for it, they might do it and save us NHL fans some gas money. You can send them an email from this link.

    *&^% OLN

    So hows this sound. Im on the phone with my friend last night. He asked me if I had the Penguins/Sabres game on. I told him no. (forgot it was on, too geeked about the Steelers/Chargers game coming on ) Anyways he said it was on OLN. He's got Comcast digital. Anyways I hear it on in the backround, so I turn on OLN (I got Dish). Guess what? NO F'in game on. OLN on Dish didnt broadcast the game, But OLN on Comcast had it, cause HE was watching it Yeah, go figure. Instead of the game, they broadcast some yacht show with some witch talking about boats. (like she really knew ) Um, let me see, hockey or boats? OLN better get their head out of their A** and start with these games. Penguins got quite a few on there. Ill be damned if I miss another one.

      I am convinced that this is a sign of the Apocalypse. Why NHL? Why have you forsaken us?

          Yeah, I can watch the majority of the Red Wings games on Fox Sports Detroit so I'm happy. I counted only five games on OLN but still... that's five games I'm missing!

          And per PittsburghKid, I might not see the games even if I did get OLN... Might have to go to my buddy's place and watch it on his Comcast cable.

              Dish Network replied back - I'll just paste their reply so I don't miss something in the paraphrase:

              "Thank you for your e-mail. We strive to make satellite programming as affordable as possible. Our packages have been set up in balance with cost effectiveness and consumer demand. One way to keep our customers programming costs low is to provide stations in packages, rather than ala carte. Unfortunately, allowing customers to substitute channels or add a favorite channel to their package would force us to raise prices. To prevent this, we do not allow channel substitutions."

              I can understand - some channels like QVC probably pay to be broadcast while other providers like Disney charge for their content so providers find a balance. The channels I want to watch probably all charge. Still sucks *** though - I mean, how much money can OLN really demand, seeing as I've never heard of the channel before this hockey season??

                well now that they are a hockey channel, they are only showing one hockey game a week. i only have basic cable and the OLN is included. but it sucks for only one game a week.

                  Well Hell

                  Well, now on Dish, if you turn OLN on, it says that until you give them more money so they can pay Comcast, you arent even gonna see the shows on it, let alone hockey. So now I have to pay to watch hockey? It used to be free on Fox Sports. Note to NHL, you are clowns. Thanks for nothin, you bums. I aint happy to see the NHL now. I told my mom, I absolutely hate Dish.
