Fox Sports/DISH/Sling TV Dispute
In September 2019, both Sling TV and DISH announced that they would no longer be offering FOX, FS1, FS2, as well as BTN (Big Ten Network). Subscribers were unable to watch their favorite sporting events if they were subscribed to one of the above services. The issue came about because the two companies could not come to terms on a multiyear contract with DISH accusing FOX of being unreasonable.
On October, 6th 2019, FOX, Dish, and Sling TV announced that they were able to come to terms on a deal and sign a multi-year contract that saw the restoration of FOX, FS1, FS2, as well as BTN (Big Ten Network) on both DISH and Sling TV package.
