Their side of the story reads as follows: Big Ten Network has made the decision to remove its signal from DISH customers. We asked Big Ten Network to leave their programming up while we continued to negotiate. However, they refused. Big Ten Network was demanding that DISH pay programming fees at least a third higher than any other major distributor. Such an increase would equate to more than DISH pays per subscriber for NFL Network, MLB Network, NBA Network, NHL Network and Golf Channel combined, and would result in unreasonable monthly fees for DISH customers. We continue to work diligently to reach an agreement with Big Ten Network to restore your programming. We take our promise to bring our customers the best programming at a price they can afford very seriously.
