No ESPN on DIsh? It Could Happen!
Matt Solinsky of the My Desert.com a Gannett company has a very freighting column for every fan of college football who has the Dish. He writes:
"ESPN’s eight-year deal for carriage on Dish Network is set to expire next month, and signs point to what could be an acrimonious battle in the coming weeks.......
Dish Network’s agreement with Disney for ESPN, other networks and ABC-owned stations, expires Sept. 30. Dish Network chairman Charlie Ergen indicated on the company’s earnings call Tuesday that the satellite provider is prepared to drop ESPN and other Disney networks if a deal is not reached."
No ESPN means NO "GAMEDAY." Saturdays in the fall would not be the same without "GAMEDAY" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
