Dish Network, Turner Canâ€™t Come to Agreement, Channels Removed
The Wall Street Journal reports that Dish Network and Turner Networks have reached an impasse in negotiations for program license renewals.
While TBS and TNT remain on Dish Network’s channel guide, other channels under the Turner Networks umbrella have been removed. Channels like CNN, Cartoon Network, Turner Classic Movies, truTV, Adult Swim and Boomerang, among others, are no longer able to be viewed on Dish until they can come to an agreement.
“In the past year, Dish has successfully renewed agreements with many large content providers,” saidÂ Warren Schlichting, Dish senior VP of programming, in a statement. “As a result, we are confident that we have offered a deal to Turner that reflects an appropriate value for our customers. Dish has had a productive relationship with Turner Networks for many years. We regret the service disruption to our customers, and remain committed to reaching an agreement that promptly returns this content to Dish’s programming lineup.”
