Apr 1, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Time Warner Inc. and satellite provider Dish Network have agreed to a new distribution deal in time to spare Dish subscribers from having this weekend’s Final Four NCAA men’s basketball games blacked out.

The deal will also make Time Warner’s HBO available as part of Dish’s new online television service, The Wall Street Journal reports.

“The two companies negotiated through Tuesday evening, past the deadline of their current short-term agreement, to wrap up a deal that will keep Time Warner’s Turner Broadcasting channels such as TBS, TNT and truTV in Dish homes,” WSJ reports.

HBO is becoming available as part of Dish’s Sling TV, as we reported separately.
