Has anyone heard anything about a Dish/Comcast dispute? My mother just called and was asking me about it, she said her and my dad were watching something on USA, and a scroll came across "Attention Dish Network Customers, you will soon loose access to USA, Bravo, SyFy, etc..." I wasn't aware that it was nearing the time for their negotiations.

When will DISH subscribers lose your networks?
DISH subscribers will lose the largest group of NBCUniversal networks, including the NBC and Telemundo broadcast stations, as of March 20th. DISH subscribers will lose the remaining NBCUniversal networks over the course of the next few months.

Hmmmm interesting

I’m a subscriber to a DISH Sling product, or considering subscribing. Will these networks be available there?
These networks won’t be available on any DISH platform.

I'm surprised this seems to be coming out of the blue without any news in advance. Did anybody know the contract was about up?

This isn't as easy as some disputes for DISH imho. There are some channels involved that are watched by a decent percent of subscribers. Not knowing what is being extorted asked for this time I would say try to settle this one.

On further review.... take the money that would have gone to Viacom and settle this one... :)

I agree, if these get dropped the first thing that will happen will be a flood of calls to Dish demanding a credit on peoples bills (10000s) of an average of 10-20 dollars because of the popularity of some of those networks. This isn't like losing PIXL or something like that. I know that I will be calling monthly to get credit as I have a lot of timers set for shows on those networks.
