A broken Dish: Will you be able to see UCLA-Cal on Saturday?


The ongoing subscription fee dispute between the Dish Network and Fox has reared its ugly headline as those who half-million plugged into this system in L.A. seem destined not to get the UCLA-Cal game on Saturday that’ll be on Prime Ticket unless something is resolved prior to kickoff.

As usual, other cable providers and DirecTV are trying to take advantage of this negotiation by telling people to come over and buy their product, which, for now, has all the Fox channels — Dish Network has suspended carrying FSWest, Prime, FX and National Geographic, and they claim that as of Nov. 1, they could also drop KTTV-Fox Channel 11.

Dish dropped all 19 of Fox’s regional sports networks on Oct. 1, but fearing a mass exodus from the service, allowed its subscribers to see the UCLA-Washington State on Prime Ticket from the Rose Bowl.

(Actually, those who sending out the propaganda against Dish network insist that “coming off two back-to-back wins vs. ranked opponents, the Bruins could grab their first victory at Memorial Stadium since 1998.” Washington State, of course, wasn’t ranked, and almost beat UCLA last Saturday).
