The announcement came this morning that not only had DISH and FSSW not worked out the difference between the two on 20 Stars games that DISH did not want to broadcast, but that DISH had dropped Fox Sports nationwide. That means DISH will not carry any FSSW programming for right now.
It is a contract battle, so these things can get fixed at any time _ and they could eventually get fixed with the 20 missing Stars games being restored to DISH. But, for right now, DISH fans will not get Stars game on FSSW.
Here is the press release for FSSW:
At Midnight (PT) on September 30, DISH Network dropped FOX Sports Southwest and now Dish customers risk missing the final three Texas Rangers games this weekend, Saturday's Kansas-Baylor game and other Big 12 football games as well as the start of the Dallas Mavericks, San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Stars seasons later this month and in November.
"Fox has been trying for months to reach a fair agreement, but Dish refuses to play ball," said FOX Sports Southwest spokesman Ramon Alvarez. "Our programming is among the most valuable Dish offers, and we're simply looking for a fair deal."
