I'm curious about your opinions of this dispute with Viacom over programming costs. Dish Network has let their contract expire and we no longer have any MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, plus a number of Viacom-owned CBS stations.

Personally I'm proud of them for fighting for lower costs :) It doesn't hurt that there's really nothing on right now I feel I'm missing anyway.. hope it's resolved before The Osbournes resumes next month though :)

Edit: Though for some reason TV Land is still there, which is a sister network of Nickelodeon. Strange.

In our area, the main by-product of this dispute has been an increase in people jumping from dish network to directv.
