Contract negotiation alert: Big Ten Network and DISH


Big Ten Network is currently communicating through various outlets that this channel could be removed from DISH’s channel lineup, which would ultimately affect BroadStar’s ability to provide Big Ten Network in programming packages and in the Multi-Sport Pack. DISH is currently in contract negotiations with Big Ten Network.
