I totally supported Charlie Ergen’s stand against Viacom last week. I’ve been nothing but happy with my Dish subscription and Charlie has consistently showed that he’s willing to fight the big boys to keep my monthly bills from inflating out of control.
Dish and Viacom resolved their contract dispute yesterday, and I’m sure it wouldn’t have happened if Viacom hadn’t caved in some way.
And so to make up for a day and a half of no Viacom programming (which, honestly, I didn’t miss all that much) Charlie’s giving all subscribers a $1 credit on next month’s bill along with a free pay per view coupon. Pretty sweet!
