CSN Chicago statement on DISH network

“With the upcoming expiration of our agreement, we are growing increasingly concerned that DISH is not willing to work toward mutually acceptable terms for continuing carriage of Comcast SportsNet Chicago.  This unwillingness to recognize the value of our live game coverage of the Bulls, Blackhawks, Cubs and White Sox, as well as exclusive Bears programming, is disappointing.  Comcast SportsNet Chicago is simply asking DISH to meet fair market value and the terms that have already been established with our other distribution partners.  We feel that the time is right to inform the passionate viewers of Comcast SportsNet Chicago that they may soon be unable to watch their favorite Chicago teams via DISH’s service.  As we continue to negotiate with DISH, fans can stay up to date and make their voice heard by visiting www.IWANTCSNCHICAGO.com.”
