HBO Fires Back at Dish in Blackout Tussle

For its part, Univision said it extended an olive branch, but that Dish so far has shown no willingness to back down. That could be a portent of how the HBO negotiations will proceed in the days or weeks to come.

"Dish has a long history of aggressive carriage negotiations with networks," noted Brett Sappington, senior director of research at Parks Associates.

"It has been unafraid to have blackouts, or to eliminate channels from their packages, if they cannot reach terms that make sense for Dish," he told the E-Commerce Times.
