    Hopefully you have been talking to Dish and getting credits off of your bill.

    I know the Rsn's left this past July, but I have seen a lot of grumbling from baseball fans here and on other platforms that are finding out they can't see their favorite/local teams with Dish this year. I would think Dish is about to get a lot of mad subs who will be willing to leave.

    So now You Tube Tv doesn't have Fox Sports Networks.

    I think Hulu TV and their contract with Sinclair is up next month.

    So what does Sinclair do?

    Does this put more pressure on them to settle?

    Baseball surely can't be happy. Or, does baseball even care?

    This has been absolutely ridiculous for me this basketball season. I started the year hoping Fox Sports would make a deal with Dish. Ok so that didn't happen so I try fubo, whoops Sinclair pulled their channel from them, ok I try You Tube tv, ok now Sinclair is pulling their channels from them too. Do I try Hulu next? Do I just say eff the rest of this season because it's just more trouble than it's worth and hope something is worked out by next season, even if it's Sinclair going down in ashes and someone buying whatever pieces are left?

    At this point only AT&T|DIRECTV can be trusted not to have a dispute with Sinclair in the near future. The terms of their recent deal were not disclosed, but renewals and adding Marquee should keep AT&T|DIRECTV under contract for a couple of years. The next "hope" for RSNs on DISH would be when the Sinclair OTA stations renew. If Sinclair still has RSNs they may try to leverage the OTA carriage contract to get a RSN carriage contract.

    “May try”? They already did try that with Dish.

    why don't the leagues just buyout their respective deals with RSNs and kill the RSNs concept and come up with a regional PPV season pass/game buyin option to watch the game. this will solve the RSN problem and they can keep the idea of PPV alive and allow those who want to see their team pay a price for local coverage and being able to have a choice to pay a fee instead of a forced fee.

    There is so much more on RSN's than MLB and RSN's have been grossly overpaying for almost every item they carry.

    The Sinclair OTAs have not come up for renewal since the RSNs were purchased.

    Correct, they didn’t. But Sinclair tried to roll them together with Dish. I think there was even a lawsuit over it that got tossed since the OTA contracts were already in place.

    You Tube TV gets an extension with Sinclair while they are still negotiating.

    why didn’t they do this with Dish?
