ATLANTA, Nov. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today DISH unilaterally chose to black out all Cox Media Group (CMG) TV stations across the country after deploying its well-worn anti-consumer drop tactic. With this move, DISH has once again punished its own customers and deprived hundreds of thousands of consumers across the country of access to CMG’s critical local news, emergency weather and traffic information, popular sports and other local and national network programming.

Key Points: 
  • This has undercut both local broadcasting and its own customers, said Paul Curran, EVP of Television, Cox Media Group.
  • Let me be clear despite their numerous false claims, it was solely DISHs decision to remove CMGs best-in-class TV stations from its service.
  • To keep our stations on the DISH platform, we offered DISH an extension of our current agreement with no strings attached, but DISH refused.
  • DISH customers who are disappointed and frustrated by DISHs latest stunt to deprive them of vital programming should switch TV providers now.
