FXX, a new channel, on DISH Network

September 17th, 2013


If you’re familiar with FX, the popular channel that is full of original shows – many of which raise eyebrows for their cutting edge content – there’s a new member of the family. With FXX, viewers will already be familiarized with many of the shows available on the channel, since they have transitions from the original FX. Some of these channels include It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, and Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.

FXX will also feature a great number of syndicated programs such as the NBC classic Freaks and Geeks, as well as other familiar favorites like Arrested Development, Parks & Recreation, and How I Met Your Mother. There will plenty of other syndicated shows available on FXX as well, including both classics and recently popular shows that were (and in some cases still are) available on primetime.

FXX has been running since the beginning of September, and is available to customers of DISH Network. To find out more about how you can get it, call to learn today.

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.

The channels listed below are all available when you order America’s “Everything” Pak, but other packages may or may not carry all of these channels. Call Cannon Satellite TV if you wish to learn more about what is included in the package of your choice.

  • Nickelodeon – Now one of the classic shows for children and young adults, Nickelodeon has been providing classic shows for several decades now. DISH has both Nickelodeon West and East available to subscribers. DISH also offers other channels such as Nick Jr., Nicktoons Network and TeenNick as well!
  • Disney Channel – One of the most recognizable names in entertainment, the Disney Channel is the source for programming that young ones can find fun and relatable.
  • Cartoon Network – With dozens of original shows and more, Cartoon Network is a world in itself that is full of all kinds of unique characters.
  • ABC Family – Though oriented for the whole family, ABC Family dives a bit more into issues that growing kids might face. However, there is still plenty of programming that everyone in the home will be able to find fun, together.
  • Boomerang – Relive cartoons of the past with your children on Boomerang, a channel that is devoted to the classics. You’ll probably find that you’ll get struck with some nostalgia as old cartoons that you used to love take over your screen.
  • HBO Family – Movies, original shows, and more, HBO Family is an excellent source for family-safe programming, and it’s all without commercials!
  • …and others!

DISH Network has options for the family that you’re looking for. Remember that with the Smart Pack, which is an introductory package of DISH Network, you’ll get 55 channels that are packed together for the whole family to huddle around. DISH has you covered when it comes to getting your family together when the time is right.

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.
