Disney Tells Dish Network to Pay or Else; Dish Appears Ready to Say Yes

Phillip Dampier July 22, 2019 Consumer News, Dish Network, Online Video 1 Comment

Dish Network had until 11:59pm MDT on Sunday, July 21 to cut a deal that paid The Walt Disney Company more money or satellite and streaming customers could have lost access to five Disney-owned networks: National Geographic, FX, FXX, FXM (Movies), and NatGeo Wild.

“Our contract with Dish for the FX and National Geographic networks is due to expire soon, so we have a responsibility to make our viewers aware of the potential loss of our programming,” NatGeo and FX said in a statement last week. “However, we remain fully committed to reaching a deal and are hopeful we can do so.”

The deadline came and went and so far, the networks remain on the lineup after both parties agreed to extend talks.

The cable networks were formerly owned by 21st Century Fox, but were part of a package sale worth $71.3 billion to Disney in March.

Separate negotiations are also underway with the Fox Regional Sports Networks, which also achieved a temporary extension. Both sides indicate they are optimistic they will arrive at a deal.

Negotiations with Meredith Corporation’s 17 over the air TV stations did not fare as successfully. Satellite and streaming customers lost access to those stations last week.

    Hello, I think it’s terrible. Any business is a combination of several circumstances that, working together, create the “character” of a business. The “nature” of a business implies the attitude of the business, as a whole, to everything related to the work of the business, including attitudes towards customers. Attitudes toward customers are basically shaped by people working in business, namely, employees working with customers and their managers. Change yourself, first of all, change your work style and demonstrate, with concrete actions in relation to employees, professionalism, positive attitude and attitude towards clients.
