What cable or dish provider offers Fuel TV? I must have it, and can't find it. Is it a subscription, or should I get it with the service? <BR> <BR>Thanks guys.

mike3500 11-04-2008 1:08 PM

Oh yeah, I'm in the Los Angeles area. Currently, I have Dish network.

dillls 11-04-2008 1:10 PM

Direct TV or Verizon only I think.

ttrigo 11-04-2008 1:10 PM

DirecTV. Dish does not carry Fuel. at least not in so cal.

salsajs3030 11-04-2008 1:12 PM

...usually you have to call your cable provider, tell them you want Fuel Tv (usually channel 370), and you have to pay a whoping 1 dollar extra per month for it. <BR>Good luck!

mike3500 11-04-2008 1:18 PM

I love wakeworld. Where else can you post a question, and get 3 different responses back within 5 minutes. <BR> <BR>I figured we had to move from Dish. Thanks a lot guys.

I live in orange county. When we had time warner (the worst cable company around) we paid extra for their "sports" package which included Fuel. Now we have ATT... I don't think we pay any extra for it.

I have a new phone from AT&amp;T and they offer tv for your phone called FLO TV. Fuel is one of the channels on the service so I get to watch it all day long at work!

madriding1 11-04-2008 1:43 PM

Comcast has it

fatsac 11-04-2008 1:52 PM

Which phone is that, Ryan and how do you like the service so far?

jon43 11-04-2008 2:00 PM

At&amp;t U verse

direct tv just aquired at&amp;t and dish network i belive. i have att and have fuel on there. the guy that installed my service said that direct tv just bought them out

onthewatermo 11-04-2008 4:29 PM

Direct TV here and FuelTV is well worth it...multiple wakeshows on last night, great snowboard coverage, and despite my not skateboarding growing up, I am digging the coverage (note: I can take or leave the motocross stuff...fun documentaries with Pastrana, enjoyable, but a little too much "Great Ride Open" which to me, every episode is the same...dudes in the desert hitting jumps...I respect their stoke but think they are given too much coverage).

craigr 11-04-2008 8:16 PM

im in miami and have comcast and i have fuel

11-05-2008 9:06 AM

I have direct, and I have it (Nor Cal)

ripr 11-05-2008 10:00 AM

Has anyone had any luck calling Dish Network and getting them to add it to your subscription?

jcush313 11-05-2008 10:56 AM

i was wondering the same thing NAW. is dish network getting fuel?

11-05-2008 12:32 PM

Charter cable for us here in LA.

aces6692 11-05-2008 2:20 PM

i have time warner/comcast and i have it

mike3500 11-06-2008 10:18 AM

I was on the phone with dish network yesterday. they don't have it, and no plans on adding it. <BR> <BR>If I decide to switch to Direct TV, it'll cost me about $300 for all of the receivers I need throughout the house. They said they don't have a Receiver that can run more than one TV at a time. What's up with that? That can't be, I'll have to call back. <BR> <BR>I'm having a hard time justifying a $300 expense for Fuel?!?!?!? I know I would love it, and it's the only channel I'd watch, but it's $300.

fatsac 11-06-2008 10:53 AM

Dude, Mike, I just had DirecTV installed in three rooms with one being HD and all channels for $60 a month. No installation fee. Granted, the install looked like hell but they cleaned it all up after I complained. Call their 800 number and see what's up.

soonerwake85 11-06-2008 11:00 AM

Fatsac...I have the LG Vue, the phone that kinda looks like the iphone, all touch screen. The tv looks great on the phone. It turns sideways so you can watch it wide screen. Only problem is that it is only offered in big cities, so you dont get the tv signal everywhere. The service is fairly new so maybe it will be expanded. Also its an extra $15 a month, but you get like 15 channels.

mike3500 11-06-2008 11:48 AM

Thanks fatsac. They quoted me a monthly fee of $60, but the initial set-up was going to cost me around $300 for 1 HDDVR, 2 HD's, and 1 SD receiver.

pdifasboat 11-06-2008 12:20 PM

Check out competitive suppliers. Here in Utah it's so competitive you can get it all for $60 a month, they'll waive the install and set-up charges, plus Direct TV vendors give you 90 days free premium (Showtime).

fatsac 11-06-2008 12:29 PM

I had to call a couple times to get that deal but good luck either way. <BR>Thanks for the info, Ryan! I have a Treo but would love like to change out next year. The new techy phones are addicting.

mike3500 11-06-2008 12:47 PM

Thanks guys. I'll give them another call.
