35. if you have dish network, you already send rupert murdoch money
DISH doesn't allow you to opt out of FOX News channel, or FOX sports net, so part of your money still goes to rupert...and since viacom already charges Dish more than $1 per subscriber per month, charlie just gave you a big rate increase, since he's only giving back $1 to the customers, and pocketing the rest.
