    Dish Drops Two Fox Channels

    Satellite-TV provider Dish Network Corp. is no longer carrying 21st Century Fox’s Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network after the companies couldn’t come to terms on a new distribution contract.
    The channels went dark for Dish customers Saturday night, and there are currently no talks between the two companies, a senior Fox News executive said.

    Not "breaking" news per se, but I have noticed Fox is now currently running commercials with Bill O'Reilly here (Seattle) claiming DTV is censoring what viewers are seeing. A total lie. Typical Fox Noise.

    Lol, watching FOX News complain that another company is censoring them through business agreements is poetic justice. I think they're coming around to the idea that monopolies do exist in telecommunications and these monopolies already have the power to determine what one accesses on TV and the internet.... but I doubt it.

    That's my problem with TV and Internet - it's so monopolized that they have no reason to make it customizable. I'm hopeful that if NN gets passed and streaming services continue to flood the market that TV and Internet sources will be forced via the market to make major changes.

    i'm hopeful that NN will get passed at all. all of the money is riding on the other option.

    I was just reading about some new streaming options available. For instance, you're favorite channel ESPN is about to be offered via streaming entirely separate from a cable carrier. So you won't actually have to subscribe to cable TV to stream it. And then I read about a new streaming service that basically turns your TV into a desktop computer via thumb drive.

    These things should excite me... but I am so scared that the mass exodus that is about to start happening from cable to TV is going to lead to major changes with how data is handled. And if the neocons buy into the "free market" option... ugh.

    Dropping the highest rated cable news channel in the country sounds like a bad business strategy.

    Looks like they are dropping ME TV too (Milllenium TV - oldies.)

    Are they censoring what Baby Boomers are watching too? Is there an agenda behind that too?

    They are fighting over money. Chances are, I would guess Dish is going to lose out on its desired amount and will have to settle for less.

    I heard somebody at work complaining about this. Will be interesting to see if viewer demand will lead to a solution.
