That's what the laughing face was for. I was being a wiseass. Your initial statement was that all RSNs are gone, but left it implied that it was the FOX Sports RSNs. So, I decided to be a wiseass, as Boston is not affected by this blackout. We get only NESN on Dish, and should they ever bring it back, our other is a NBC Sports RSN. So, Sinclair doesn't have any impact in our market.
NESN is essentially owned jointly by the Red Sox and Bruins. 80% is owned by the Red Sox ownership and 20% is owned by the company that owns the Bruins. Therefore, we aren't ever impacted when a big company has a peeing contest with Dish. Now if NESN can get rid of the crappy new logo with the wavy "N" and go back to NESN inside the ticket, I'd be much more happy.
Hello bgee, DISH has reached an agreement with FOX and most of the FOX channels has been restored. Should you still be experiencing any issues please feel free to reach out to us. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this has caused.
