DISH recently announced that the above named channels will be removed from the DISH Network due to the inability of the firms to negotiate the terms of a renewed distribution agreement. It should be noted that Turner refused to extend the overall agreement.
What the two sides are saying:
- DISH Sr VP stated Warren Schlichting: “In the past year, DISH has successfully renewed agreements with many large content provider….we are confident that we have offered a deal to Turner that reflects an appropriate value for our customers”
- Turner Network has not made any public statements to the knowledge of 16$H
In a recent quarterly earnings conference call DISH (Chairman Charlie Ergen) stated that the lost of the Time Warner’s Turner Broadcasting and CNN were a “non-event”. Many experts in the industry feel that Ergen is being 100% sincere in his statement while some feel it is just posturing. Ergen went on to say that CNN is not a top 10 network anymore “unless they find the Malaysian plane”. Time will tell who wins this heated battle.
