Request for new channel

DISH has just added BlazeTV to their 250 tier. I would like to see AT&T add it to their 200 or 300 tier selections. We need added diversity of political opinion and news from which to choose.

There is no need to make threats to AT&T. If you want to watch The Blaze, you will need to switch to Dish Network. It is the only television provider that will carry that channel.

 

According to Wikipedia, "TheBlaze is a conservative news and opinion website and Internet television network owned by American media personality and former CNN Headline News and Fox News host Glenn Beck's Mercury Radio Arts."

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TheBlaze

 

However, according to The Blaze web site: "Partnering with DISH Network, Glenn Beck’s online 24-hour news, information and entertainment network will now be available on television exclusively on DISH, joining a host of channels including MSNBC, BBC America, CNN, Current, Comedy Central and FOX News."

I hope that you are not a one and done, one post wonder, and will come back to let us know if you still intend to switch providers. Of course, Dish Network is the only provider you can go to if you want to watch The Blaze.

All these 1 post members who post asking for GB and then they seem to disappear. They've all appeared this month too. There are 7 liberal stations?!? I hope one of these one times wonders will list all 7 eventually.

Methinks you might be viewing the world through Glenn Beck's distortion-inducing glasses.

I have subscribed to the BLASE internet TV programming since it began and have found it to be extremely informative.  WIll U-Verse be adding that programming to their cable service anytime in the near future?  Watching it on a computer screen or an Android phone is sometimes convenient but I look forward to the time when I can DVR it and view it in the comfort of my family room in HD.

Will U-verse be picking up programming from BLASE TV anytime soon?

As has been stated previously, you will need to change to Dish Network to watch Glenn Beck.

I can't figure out if all these one post wonders are the same Beck fan waiting a couple days between each new username and post or if it's all different people. A mod may want to check that out.

I need to have programming that matches MY values.  You are carrying Al-Jazerra and if I must pay for that programming I also need to have the Blaze TV in order to keep Uverse.  If that station isn't available in the next few months I will be cancelling my service with you.

When will you pick up the Blaze TV network?

The Blaze TV has already been discussed on this previous thread.

 

http://forums.att.com/t5/Features-and-How-To/Request-for-new-channel/m-p/3295071/highlight/true#M958...

 

As of now, The Blaze TV can only be found on Dish Network or through internet streaming.

 

As far as U-Verse carrying Al-Jazerra, you are not forced to watch that channel if and/or once it becomes a part of the U-Verse lineup. No one is forced to watch any channel. Just black it out in your channel lineup.

You need to talk to Mr. Beck about this.  As per the Blaze website:


If you don’t have DISH, TheBlaze is still available to you now via an online subscription! You can watch via computer, iPhone, iPad, or on your television via Roku.

 

Either switch to Dish or subscribe to the online version.

Please add TheBlaze to the uverse channel lineup.  Conservatives/traditionalists should have more than one (FOX) choice of channel to watch; Liberals have at lease seven channels from which to choose (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, PBS, etc.).

Currently, The Blaze is exclusive to DishTV.

I have requested The Blaze and the Hallmark Channels already.  But Cablevision is the #5 cable company and has included The Blaze in their lineup,

 

I don't think it would be wise to be a "Johnny Come Lately" to adding The Blaze (and the Hallmark Channels)....  

 

Have a little vision....  please provide another choice for conservatives besides FOX....  liberals have more than 7....

 

Thank you!

I'm not sure what Ance is. I'm guessing a typo of some sort.

 

BBC is an international channel and reports world news. Not sure how this could be considered liberal.

 

 

CBS is not a cable news channel. CBS is a broadcast television network. If you're wanting to lump them in as a liberal channel then you must add in FOX, not just Fox News, as a conservative channel.

 

 

CNN may have an overall liberal bias, but it's affiliates (HLN and CNNi) have different type of coverage and don't normally cover the US political atmosphere.  It should also be noted that Glenn Beck once worked for this "Liberal" network.

Cablevision does NOT offer The Blaze on it's TV lineup.  The only provider that does so is Dish Network.

Those four are heavy hitters, lol.  I would like to see more balance in news offerings: There is Fox and Blaze on one side and ABC News, CBS News, CNN, MSNBC and the rest, on the other.  The White House Press Seceratry's wife works for ABC News, if that tells you anything.
