Slot to Sports Links Football fans with DISH network in their households will be forced to get creative this weekend if they intend to see watch their teams play on television from their living room couch. The news, which was first reported by John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, is set to have major implications for sports viewers both Thursday evening and into the weekend if the dispute is not resolved prior.
That, of course, is just the beginning before the weekend lineup of games -- both college and NFL -- arrives. One of the notable Week 5 college matchups set to be broadcast on FS1 is No.
Moving into Saturday, Texas Tech at No. Fox is raising prices and turning its back on its public obligation to provide channels to consumers for free.
To add insult to injury, Fox pulled its channels right as viewers head into the heart of the NFL and college football season.
We ask Fox to stop punishing its own viewers so we can focus on reaching a fair deal. Those networks remain dark -- now 2 months and counting -- as the latest batch of networks are set to be pulled from the lineup.
