Dish Network Fights for Customers of Turner Networks

by Tammy Venable on October 22, 2014

Unicom Satellite, Bremen's local Dish Network Retailer has had a barrage of phone calls about not being able to find CNN in their channel lineup.  Tammy Venable, owner and operator of the local business stated, "Dish Network has always stood up for their customers.  Sometimes they have to hard-ball the networks to keep the customers prices lower.  These things never last very long for the most part."

Dish Network publicly announced, "Our contract with Turner has expired and they have removed CNN, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, CNN en Español, Headline News, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies from DISH’s channel lineup."

Dish Network stated, "Currently, Turner is making unreasonable financial demands, and they have refused to extend the overall agreement. We are working around the clock to reach a fair and reasonable agreement with Turner. We have had a productive relationship with them for many years and are confident we can reach an agreement to restore these channels soon."

"SWITCHING IS NOT THE ANSWER... Let’s be clear. Switching your TV provider is not the answer. All pay-TV providers face disputes with channel owners. Switching only encourages channel owners to raise rate demands and drives up the costs for everyone. We’ve reached agreements with many highly rated channel owners in the last year including with The Walt Disney Company and NBCU."
