In a press release Friday from DISH Network, they announced the end of its blackout for Fox Networks, restoring Fox’s broadcasting to the cable service. The end of the disagreement between DISH and Fox, which lasted over a month, provides relief to many MLB fans now in the fourth game of the World Series. Along with baseball Fox will return many stations and networks to DISH, including The Simpsons, Glee, House, Sons of Anarchy and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on FX. Fox will also carry Border Wars and the upcoming Great Migrations on National Geographic Channel.
“After prolonged negotiations to reach a fair deal, we’re pleased to enter into a long term agreement with Fox and to assure our customers that they can continue to enjoy these channels,” said Dave Shull, Senior Vice President of Programming for DISH Network. “We thank our customers, our retail and channel partners, and our employees for their support through these negotiations, which we believe resulted in a fair deal that reinforces DISH Network’s position as the best value in television.”
