Court TV's web site is encouraging everyone to switch to Direct TV since you can still view Court TV there. Do you think most people will do this if Dish does not bring them back? It also seems rotten of Dish to offer me "free" temporary viewing of A&E Biography when I actually get it already on channel 119. So what I'm I actually getting for free?? If Dish permanently drops Court TV what will they replace it with??? With a channel I already get. Looks like I'm the one losing out.

Mr. Egren should start thinking about all the handicapped people out here who are housebound and whose only entertainment is watching TV. My husband watches Court TV constantly and since Egren took it off, our household is in turmoil. I have already priced Direct TV which is MUCH cheaper with their current offers and intend to switch ASAP. Yes I am switching after being a customer of DISH since 1997. Several calls to DISH yielded NO information - just stall tactics as to when Court TV will be reinstated. Mr. Egren, you've done an injustice to all of us.
