Today DISH sent Cord Cutters News this statement about the blackout:
“Mission is using its own viewers as leverage as it demands higher monthly rates, interrupting programming as we head into the first weekend of NFL playoffs,” said Andy LeCuyer, DISH senior vice president of Programming. “DISH offered to extend the contract during ongoing negotiations, ensuring consumers would not be harmed in this process, but Mission refused.”
This is breaking news more coming soon.
Cord Cutters News is reaching out to DISH and Mission Broadcasting for comment and will update our story as we learn more.
