    And It Begins: Fox Blocks Dish Network

    Their agreement to carry all Fox-owned channels ends tomorrow night at midnight. If they don't come to an agreement, all Fox-owned stations and networks will be off Dish as of then. This includes all FSN regional sports networks, FX, National Geographic Channel, and presumably (but not mentioned specifically) all Fox O&O broadcast stations.

    My guess is that they will work out a deal, but these pissing contests are getting out of hand

    It's supposed to rain between 2-4" in NYC metro area this evening. So I'm guessing most Dish Network subscribers in the area will have no reception at all.

    Never. That's why I switched over to FIOS when it finally became available. Got it right in time for the first 100 Greatest Players of All-time installment.

    looks like some of the channels that are apart of this dispute have been pulled from the DISH site so it does not look good...
