    Some of the highlights included FYI & H2 from 250 to the 200. Also looks like Dish is getting Military History channel (or do they have that already and I haven't been paying attention?).



    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DISH® and A+E Networks® have agreed to terms for a multi-year contract renewal that provides DISH customers with access to A+E Networks’ high-quality content, and award-winning programming from A&E’s entire portfolio. This innovative agreement includes OTT multi-stream rights for live and Video-on-Demand content. It also expands DISH customers’ access to programming on the satellite service through increased distribution of H2 and FYI in the America’s Top 200 programming package, as well as authenticated live and Video-on-Demand A+E Networks’ programming on Internet-connected devices.
    DISH Network L.L.C. is a wholly owned subsidiary of DISH Network Corp. (NASDAQ: DISH).
    The renewal applies to the entire suite of A+E Networks’ channels, among the top brands in the media landscape, including: A&E®, Lifetime®, HISTORY®, LMN®, FYI™, H2®, HISTORY en Español™, Crime + Investigation™ and Military HISTORY®.
    “I am pleased to call A+E Networks an innovative partner in developing this wide-ranging, creative agreement that will help to define the future of TV,” Joseph P. Clayton, DISH President and CEO. “Together we are enhancing the customer experience today with fresh, dynamic programming that DISH customers will be able to watch when and how they prefer.”
    The new OTT rights allow access to A+E Networks’ content through a future multi-stream subscription service of linear and Video-on-Demand content. With this capability, the content will be available to an untapped segment of customers that is seeking a flexible, content-driven, Internet-accessible service.
    “We have had a great partnership with DISH for many years and we are delighted that this renewal will carry our partnership well into the future,” said Nancy Dubuc, President and CEO, A+E Networks. “We are thrilled that DISH’s valued customers will be able to enjoy A+E Networks’ award-winning portfolio of brands across their multiple platforms. We continue to grow and make significant investments in new brands, and as such, we’re particularly pleased with the expanded distribution of FYI and H2.”
    The renewal also expands the authenticated A+E Networks programming available to DISH customers at home or on-the-go via Internet-connected devices – televisions, computers, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles and other devices. DISH customers will be able to use the DISH Anywhere™ app, dishanywhere.com or A+E Networks’ web properties and apps to view live, Video-on-Demand and full-season content.

    That is interesting. I guess the programmers are still protecting cable and satellite. I do not know why they cannot add an app for the Roku. That is the only way I get VOD. It is not available with my 211k. I cannot even get the new Weather channels to load.
