Channels on DISH for the whole family

August 26th, 2013


The content on TV these days looks to be getting more and more bold when it comes to cutting edge themes, language, and other adult-oriented material. The channels that used to be protective of what could be shown seem to be loosening their grip. While this allows the shows that we see on many of the available channels develop more advanced themes and realistic stories, the big concern is what parents have to protect their children from seeing.

It can be stressful for parents in having to figure out what their kids can watch when they have DISH Network, but actually, DISH offers a great list of family-oriented channels that everyone in the home will be able to gather around. If you were wondering what channels are available on DISH, take a quick look for yourself.

Five upcoming shows on HBO you need to check out

August 14th, 2013


TV critics and straight-up TV junkies alike often can’t wait for the upcoming projects green-lighted by HBO. While many American viewers have developed addictions to shows such as Game of Thrones, The Newsroom, and True Blood, the end of 2013 into 2014 is bringing a series of several promising projects with a string of well-known actors, veteran writers, assisted by novels familiarized throughout the past decade. Some drama, some comedy – this is a list of future shows planned for HBO that have been green-lit for airing.

Remember that HBO is available on DISH Network free for three months when you order your package today.

True Detective

Starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, True Detective will span across seventeen years in the swampy depths of Lousiana as Harrelson and McConaughey star as two state detectives tracking down an elusive serial killer. The skeletal plot sounds simple enough, but with those involved with the project, this is sure to a strong crime drama that HBO would only be able to pull off.

Hello Ladies

The long-time associate of Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant is back with what is being hailed as a “cringe comedy”. Though it often seems that Gervais and Merchant are inseparable (an of course we can’t forget about Karl Pilkington), it sounds like Gervais has no association with Hello Ladies. The comedy will center on Merchant, who plays a British (of course) web programmer who has recently moved to Los Angeles with the expectation that the city is just as glamourous as has been portrayed. Looking for love turns out to be a miserable process, as the show follows his exploits around LA. Knowing the mind of Merchant at work, this has the potential to bring a new dynamic to the romantic comedy, if that’s what you want to call it.

Silicon Valley

Mike Judge (Office Space, Bevis and Butthead) is back with is sure to be Office Space on steroids. Not much has been released about Silicon Valley, but the description has gone like this: “…where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.” Shooting has already begun, but nothing is known about when this show is set to air. Knowing the creative force of Mike Judge, Silicon Valley could very well be hard to miss.

The Missionary

Fans of Breaking Bad on AMC won’t have to be quick to miss Walter White’s sidekick Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul. Paul is rumored to be the star of a show recently ordered by HBO called The Missionary. Paul is to play an executive for Coca-Cola in Berlin during the 1960s at the height of the Cold War. While handling big business, the executive also doubles up with the CIA to help citizens of the Eastern Bloc to escape Communist rule. Charles Randolph and Mark Wahlberg are behind the project, and both have had their share of experience with HBO.


Based off of a book by Karen Russell, Swamplania! will focus on the Bigtree family and their bizarre Florida tourist attraction that is infested with alligators. The book was highly regarded when it came out two years ago, and the plan to adapt it onto the screen came pretty quickly after. Nothing much is known about this adaptation, but plenty of people have been talking about it.

What’s the deal with the Time Warner blackout?

August 12th, 2013


If you, or someone you know has Time Warner Cable and is living in the Los Angeles, New York or Dallas area, you might already be familiar with the fact that CBS is currently not available. CBS? A channel that carries a great a deal of programming from NFL coverage to all of those primetime shows? Yeah. Imagine not having that for more than a week now, all because of problems with how much Time Warner is willing to pay CBS for local channel fees.

Being in major American cities, this blackout is a pretty big deal. In fact, over 3 million customers are currently without CBS, and no one is really happy that any of this is happening in the first place. The worst part about the whole thing is that as of right now, there’s no saying when the situation will come to an end.

This isn’t exactly the kind of the thing that any customer of Time Warner would want to be hearing right now. Imagine if this were during NFL season, where CBS gives a great deal of coverage on Sundays…It’s safe to say that no person would want to be in the house of a serious NFL fan having to miss out on their team .

TWC customers have had to resort to other options to check out the CBS programming that they have been waiting on either through the Internet, or through other channels (mostly for sports programming such as the PGA Championship that happened this past weekend).

Customers of DISH Network currently aren’t being subjected to any blackouts of any kind, so the channels that you want are there when you’re ready for them. Are you a Time Warner customer that has had enough with this blackout situation, see how DISH Network from Cannon Satellite can bring you the channels that you’re looking for at any time.
