Turner Broadcasting is warning that Dish Network may drop additional networks from its lineup, and is directing viewers to a site where they can get help switching providers. The move comes amid a contract dispute between the two companies.
As previously reported, Dish has already pulled a number of Turner networks from its service, including CNN, TCM, HLN and truTV. Now Turner is now warning that TNT and TBS may also be dropped.
Dish Chairman Charlie Ergen made a similar warning earlier this month, as we reported previously.
The newest warning comes in a statement Turner released about the ongoing dispute with Dish. Here’s the text of the statement:
“Our efforts in recent weeks to restore the Turner networks to Dish customers have been rejected at every turn by Dish leadership. The upcoming expiration on December 5 of our carriage agreement for TNT and TBS means Dish may drop those networks as well. We remain hopeful that we will reach an agreement that restores our networks to the air and eliminates the risk of Dish removing additional Turner networks from its channel lineup.”
