Oh the lengths we go to to watch our beloved team... This thread is mainly for United fans who a) are DISH network/MLS Shootout subscribers and b) don't get either Comcast OR MSG (the NY-area network that carries metros games). In other words if you don't live near either DC or NY and have DISH. Everyone else can read of our plight and chortle, moan, guffaw, sigh, rant, or whatever you wish. Even make helpful suggestions for us exiles! As you know DISH users, the DISH version of MLS shootout does not carry any games except the Saturday ones. The upcoming game, the Most Important Game Of The Year, is on Sunday so there's no DISH coverage. UNLESS you go the extra step: Call DISH and sign up for the multi-sports package for $5/month. the multi sports package includes Comcast and MSG and all those regional cable Fox sports channels. Then you can watch the game for essentially a $5 PPV fee. As a bonus, and if you subscribe soon enough, the Empire sports channel has a weekly metros show where they will preview the upcoming game. Then after the game you can call DISH back up and cancel your subscription. Or, if you are like me and you notice that quite a few MLS games from now on aren't on Saturday, including playoff games, you may just want to keep the package until, oh, mid-October when the MLS season ends.
