Is HBO coming back to Dish Network?
HBO hasn’t been available to Dish or Sling TV (Dish’s over-the-top live TV service) since November, when the two sides couldn’t come to terms on a new carriage deal. The standoff comes at a tough time for Dish, as traditional cable/satellite providers continue to shed video subscribers.
Why did Dish Network drop HBO?
Keith Cocozza, a spokesman for WarnerMedia, HBO’s parent, said Dish bears the blame for causing the blackout by refusing to deal. “HBO offered to extend talks while they negotiated towards an agreement. Dish walked away,” Cocozza said. “HBO continues to deliver its signal to Dish and [is] willing to negotiate.”
Does Dish have Cinemax?
HBO, Cinemax Go Dark to Dish Customers. AT&T’s Home Box Office and Cinemax premium channels went dark to Dish Network subscribers Thursday after the parties failed to reach a distribution agreement, the first time the networks have ever gone dark to a distributor in their more than 40-year history.
