DISH Network and Fox Networks Reach Agreement

Posted: Oct. 29, 2010

It's officially "game on" again for Phoenix Suns fans.

Thanks to a new agreement reached Friday between DISH Network L.L.C., and Fox Networks, local Fox Sports Arizona telecasts of Suns games, not to mention over 300 live NBA, NHL, MLB & NCAA football and basketball games featuring Phoenix Coyotes, Arizona Diamondbacks, Arizona State Sun Devils, Arizona Wildcats, Northern Arizona Lumberjacks and New Mexico State Aggies, will once again grace Valley DISH owners' television sets.

“After prolonged negotiations to reach a fair deal, we’re pleased to enter into a long term agreement with Fox and to assure our customers that they can continue to enjoy these channels,” said Dave Shull, Senior Vice President of Programming for DISH Network. “We thank our customers, our retail and channel partners, and our employees for their support through these negotiations, which we believe resulted in a fair deal that reinforces DISH Network's position as the best value in television.”

The agreement came just hours before Friday's Suns home opener vs. the L.A. Lakers, airing locally on Fox Sports Arizona at 7:30 p.m.
