Looking forward to watching the Detroit Lions take down Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday? What about watching Michigan or Michigan State handle their business on Saturday?
Well, if you happen to be a Dish Network subscriber, you may have to find other plans.
According to reports, on Thursday, Dish made the decision to drop Fox networks, which also include the Big Ten Network.
From Detroit News:
Fox-owned stations in major markets across the country, including Detroit, are affected. Viewers find Fox on WJBK locally, but BTN, FS1, FS2, and Fox Deportes have also gone dark on Dish Network.
If there is no movement in negotiations, this could also affect Dish customers who want to watch the Lions-Chiefs game Sunday at 1 p.m.
“DISH/Sling is at it again, choosing to drop leading programming as a negotiating tactic regardless of the impact on its own customers,” a Fox Corporation spokesperson said in a statement Thursday. “DISH/Sling elected to drop Fox Networks in an effort to coerce us to agree to outrageous demands. While we regret this is DISH/Sling’s preferred approach to negotiating, we remind our loyal viewers that the Fox services are widely available through every other major television provider.”
