Yeah, like the Gay community supports LOGO TV? HA

If it were being watched it would have a lot better programing and financial support. Meanwhile it mostly sucks.

We switched to Directv and when we cancelled Dish we told them that it was because they refused to carry and LGBT programing.

No dollars for Dish!

Well if they don't want my gay money that's just fine. They can keep "earning" their straight money. It's their loss, not mine.

Y'all are wasting your time. Dish's owner is anti-Gay and personally blocked equal pay for equal work for LGBT employees.

Good for you! If more people started doing that then businesses would (hopefully) stop this discrimination against innocent homosexuals. Once they start out or start being anti-gay they'll never get my business again even if they stop doing it. The damage is done and their true nature is and always will be hatred. Let Dish be for the religious, rich, whites, conservatives, bigots, and Republicans.

Louisville, huh? No doubt you are a Republican. That's a red state. Well I guess I'm a bigot then. So what? You mean I'm supposed to like all those hateful people?!

I'm smart enough to know that conservatives are only for the rich, white, religious, anti-gay male. If not liking people like that makes me bigoted then fine but it doesn't erase the fact that they are bigots.

Oh, I forgot the the main word in that list: Republican. I haven't known of any Republican that are for gay rights.

Dish Network carries Free Speech TV which has two gay-centered news programs, Gay USA and Dyke TV, and has aired many LGBT documentaries. I don't think FSTV is available on Direct TV.

And the owner of Dish is an anti-Gay bigot who pays his gay employees less in wages and benefits as his straight employees. Because he apparently personally believes that Gay should be paid less.

I have never trusted satellite, television providers. When looking at the Here! TV website, Brighthouse Networks, our cable provider, does offer this service, but it is outside the Tampa Bay and Orlando viewing area. It is offered in the Birmingham, AL area. The kicker is that once it is offered here, it will cost $6.95 a month. Is it worth it? If so, how is it better than Logo?

Maybe all the gays should quit on the same day and leave him in a mess. If gays are being paid less then they should sue the guy. Women sue in pay discrimination situations. Why would they want to work for less?

No Logo? Count this straight person out as a future DISH subscriber. I'd been considering switching to it from cable but definitely won't now.
LOGO is on Dish

LOGO is finally on Dish Network as of this 5/8/2009 - Channel 373. It is an HD channel, so you will need a newer HD Dish receiver and the PlatinumHD add-on package.
