Turner And HBO Secure Distribution Deals With Dish Network

Turner Broadcasting channels, except for TBS Network and TNT , went dark on Dish for a month beginning in late October as both sides blamed the other for the breakdown in negotiations to extend their carriage deal. Dish Network Chairman Charlie Ergen gave Turner an ultimatum that if it could not come to terms by the end of November, then Dish might “just make a long-term decision to go a different direction.” He called the loss of the channels– including CNN, Cartoon Network, and truTV — a “non-event” for Dish, specifically noting that channels such as CNN “are not quite the product that they used to be. – David Lieberman, Deadline Hollywood
