Day 37. Still no sign of land.

Well, channel 407 has dropped off Dish completely, it's the night before La Liga starts, and the GolTV website doesn't foresee any compromise in the near future. I'm not feeling hopeful about this.

Can anyone out there do my job for me this weekend? Hit the comments...

Mensaje Importante

I still got nothing. Anyone still out there?

Like a xylophone hammer all over your consciousness

First, Brian at The Run of Play, one of my favourite blogs, featured Ray Hudson as the subject of his Tuesday Portrait, er, last week (hey, it's summer, gimme a break).

Second, Dish Network has dropped GolTV. Guess where I get my GolTV? Yup. Dish blame "GolTV’s decision to impose unreasonable contract terms". The Gaffer has a source who says that Dish want to lower the fee they are paying GolTV per subscriber. I'm hoping one side or the other will blink (preferably Dish, but I suspect they have the stronger bargaining position) before the European seasons start. If not, I'm in big trouble; for some reason, Mrs Hudsonland isn't going to give up her Dish.
