DISH chickens out, restores FOX channels

Amazing what response a $450 mil class action lawsuit can elicit, albeit against another entity.

Mailed to DISH Network customers this afternoon:

DISH Network is pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with FOX and that your FX channel has been restored. You may have also had a FOX Regional Sports Network channel removed and this programming has been restored as well. The new agreement also ensures the continued carriage of all your FOX local channels.

We appreciate your patience during this time and regret the inconvenience this may have caused you. Starting now, you can enjoy a variety of great programming that will be offered as a free preview for a limited time:

  • Sony Movie Channel — Enjoy uncut, uninterrupted and remastered theatrical movies. Available on channels 386 (HD) and 387 (SD)
  • NBA League Pass — Catch the excitement of your favorite NBA basketball teams—right from your living room. Available on channels 560-572
  • Cooking Channel — Dedicated to today’s more passionate food lover. Available on channel 113
  • The Science Channel — Explore Science’s past, present and future. Available on channel 193
For more detailed information, including dates in which these channels will run in Free Preview, please visit or tune to Channel 102.

DISH Network thanks you for your loyalty and for standing by our side.
