The real retards here are the poople that will flee a cable service just because they stand up to an upstream content provider.
This is not about the bill going down. This is about the bill going up. Fox wants your cable bill to go up and Dish is fighting that.
Like any sane business, they don't want their costs going up. Unfortunately, they are dealing with monopoly products that have a single supplier.
It's high time that ALL cable providers itemized prices so that when channel X raises the bill, it is obvious that channel X is the greedy bastard that made your bill go up. No more hiding behind the reseller.
