Now I'm REALLY glad I switched away from Dish.

Maybe they can do a split screen: show Glenn pontificating by his chalkboard on one side and a crazy person talking to himself while walking down the street on the other. It would be interesting to see which one made more sense.

you must have esp. let me give you a tip, there is this thing called a remote. learn how to use it. better and cheaper than switching providers.

Amusing that you call paid satellite TV 'traditional'. Seems like I remember over-the-air signals as being the start and tradition of TV

Isn't it nice that TV remotes have a channel changer and off button so people don't have to be inflicted with Beck-itis.

It will be right there with LOGO as just another channel I will never watch, nor ever subscribe to. But I am sure it will be a hit in Utah....5 cents for Beck, 5 cents for LOGO..... how appropriate is that. You will have the option to watch full episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race, or Beck wimper, heal, and cry his way through tell us about the end of society all the while pronouncing his own superior intellect.

Thank heavens I have Direct TV and I can watch the NFL instead....

I'm actually rather interested to see what this channel would do to Fox's ratings since regardless of whether you think Fox is the only fair and balanced news network, or think Fox is highly conservatively biased, both views do consider Fox to be the only network to fulfill a specific role that there's demand for, and BlazeTV might end up being the first serious challenger in that regard.

Why is this "news"?

If you are going to report on what Glenn Beck does, why aren't you reporting about the comings and goings of other entertainment figures?

This is simply not news and nobody with any common sense cares what Glenn Beck does.

He looks like a sinner with that goatee.

I'm just thrilled for Glenn. He tries so hard, he deserves to be rich. And he helps the rest of us prepare for... uh... "something" he believes is "happening." "Something is happening!" It's a great product. I eat it right up. He has such a great sense of humor to boot.

Unfortunately, a lot of people who watch Beck are so taken in by the claptrap he spouts that they wouldn't recognize the truth if it reached up and bit them on the nose. That's why it's so good to be able to just turn him off.

Puts me in a bind. In Cedar City Dish is the only satellite provider that has the Salt Lake market local stations in HD. Oh well, I will just just hide TheBlaze like the other porn channels.

This guy is an acting talent of the first order, and I mean that as both a complement and a derision. The guy is positively dangerous.


Deseret News selectively decides who to write about. Why does DN, a church-owned paper, think Beck deserves publicity and coverage?

Beck perpetuates lies, disinformation and demonization on his programs.

How sad -- I had largely forgotten about him. I guess I was hoping he'd remain banished into internet oblivion.


I love Glenn Beck since he is a brother in the Gospel. I don't get dish but do pay to see him on the internet. He is a lot better to watch than the main news channels as well as other news channels. But I know many people in Utah hate him as I read your comments. But then again most of you believe Romney can really get us out of the problems facing America. But how can he since he doesn't follow the Constitution and obviously most of you don't either, so much for the way you think.
Go Glenn...

Richmond, VA

Rick2009, I too love and adore Glenn and despite the noise from the haters, I do believe that if they would just listen with open minds, they too would see that Glenn is not this hatemonger the liberal media is making him out to be. And though he was not a supporter of Romney originally, he is now because he clearly sees that he's a much better alternative than Obama to get our country out of this mess we're in. Glenn's show today at 5pm is showcasing the life of Mitt Romney.

Yet, 1 more reason to stay w/ Comcast.

"I do believe that if they would just listen with open minds, they too would see that Glenn is not this hatemonger the liberal media is making him out to be."

I never thought he was a hatemonger. Just an insincere weasel who makes Frank Burns look like the Dalai Lama.
