    All at once I cannot get Dr. Phil either on CBS /DISH. What has happened? Must we now watch it on Roku?

    Iwatch Dr Phil everyday and now suddenly it is not showing up on CBS out of Fort Wayne Indiana. Why is he been taken off
    the air in this area? it’s really aggravating to not be able to find him anywhere on any station and yet he is contracted through 2016 and 2017.

      It seems to be nation-wide. Did you get him on DISH as I did? I have Roku so can watch older episodes off of there.

      I’m aggrevated!
