Has Dish And Hbo Come To An Agreement

Published by at 8:28 am under Uncategorized

Ginni, it`s been 10 months since Dish and HBO were able to get a new transport contract. And when the old deal expired on Nov. 1, HBO pulled HBO and Cinemax from Dish and Dish`s Sling TV live streaming service. “For more than forty years in business, HBO has always been able to reach an agreement with our valued distributors and our services have never been lowered or unavailable to subscribers because they were unable to make a deal,” HBO said in a statement. “Simple and simple, the merger has created immense power over consumers for AT&T,” said Andy LeCuyer, Dish Senior VP of Programming. “It appears that AT&T is implementing a new strategy to unplug its content recently acquired by other distributors. It could be the first of many HBO blackouts for consumers across the country. AT&T no longer provides an incentive to reach an agreement in the name of consumer choice. Instead, he had the power to take more money or steal from customers. HBO, along with sister channel Cinemax, has denied access to Dish subscribers since October due to a persistent dispute over the terms of a new distribution agreement.

The other prospect for Dish to bring back HBO is if AT&T insists it`s included in the upcoming promotion convention for AT&T gymnast networks like TBS, TNT and The Cartoon Network. It`s unclear when the current deal expires, but you can bet AT&T would fight to get HBO into the new deal. The future of how consumers will access their favorite shows and movies from a large number of sources could very well be determined by how disputes like this are resolved (if at all). If the competition for the eyes is increasingly sordid, could high-level power outages like this become a frequent occurrence? But here`s winter. Drop and go with YouTube TV. Divide your bill by two, you have more money and take HBO now. In what could be a sign of things to come — as well as a microcosm of the rapidly consolidating media landscape — HBO went dark Thursday for millions of Dish Network subscribers as well as subscribers to Dish Sling TV`s streaming service due to a contract dispute. . . .
