My morning routine starts pretty early and includes HLN's Morning Express with Robin Meade. I look forward to her "Good Morning Sunshine" and the quick capsules of news each morning. Wow was I surprised to wake up this morning to NO HLN on my DISH.

Here's the scoop according to the Los Angeles Times:

CNN, Cartoon Network and several other Turner cable channels were removed from satellite TV giant

Dish Network's systems late Monday after the two companies could not agree on a new distribution contract.

Dish said the action was taken because it no longer had permission to broadcast several Turner Broadcasting channels to its customers.

The other channels include:Cartoon Network, Boomerang, CNN en Español, HLN, truTV and Turner Classic Movies.

I don't know about you but I'm pretty stinking mad. I'm sick and tired of paying well over $100 per month for TV and losing channels that I actually watch. A few years ago it was CBS and more recently FOX. I love my DISH but enough already.
