DISH Invites Customers to Deflate the Game Not the Ads
 
ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DISH Network L.L.C. announced today that customers can enable “Reverse AutoHop” to watch just the commercials the day after Sunday’s big game.

Fox Sports Go Is Coming To DirecTV
 
(awfulannouncing.com) - One of the main tentpoles of FS Go is their soccer offerings with Fox’s extensive rights to the FA Cup and other European events.  During FA Cup action yesterday, Bloguin’s soccer site 32 Flags was in a discussion with our friend Jonathan Tannenwald of Philly.com (who knows more about soccer on television than pretty much anyone else in this country) about FS Go’s distribution issues and how the service wasn’t offered by Dish or DirecTV.

Viacom Shares Fall After Analyst Warns Of Possible Run-In With Dish Network
 
(deadline.com) - The change is predicated on Bazinet’s belief that there’s at least a 50% chance Dish will drop Viacom channels including MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, and VH1 when their carriage deal expires. (He says it could happen as early as this year; a Viacom spokesman says the current agreement does not expire in 2015 but declined to provide the exact end date.) The reason? Dish has dug in its heels in recent negotiations, allowing Turner Broadcasting networks (including CNN and Cartoon Network), CBS, and Fox News to go dark. Meanwhile small distributors including Cable One and Suddenlink appear to have done well financially after dropping Viacom. “Do you see a pattern?” the analyst asks, predicting that renewal talks between Viacom and Dish will become “a key event.”...
