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?

Thanks guys.

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

...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.
Good luck!

I love wakeworld. Where else can you post a question, and get 3 different responses back within 5 minutes.

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&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!

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 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).

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

I was on the phone with dish network yesterday. they don't have it, and no plans on adding it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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