    This sounds like a routine carriage contract dispute rather than a permanent parting of ways.

    Contract dispute? Zee Entertainment is in hot water to see Aapka Colors on demand Voot on Sling. You notice why Hotstar and Zee5 are not there.

    Interesting uplink report in May. Credit to James Long, for mentioning the words region restricted.

    Zee5 launch presented by special guest Priyanka Chopra Jonas on June 22, 2021. Zee5 inductory offer is $49.99 first year.

    For it to be a dispute the facts presented would need to be disputed. DISH and Sling TV have made a clear statement: They made an offer to continue carriage and Zee Entertainment decided not to continue to be carried. Where is the dispute? Zee has put out no statement contradicting the DISH/Sling TV statement.

    After decades of watching disputes one expects a "dispute" to have an alternate opinion. A carrier claiming that a company is asking too much for their channel and the channel claiming the amount they want is fair. Usually some numbers are thrown in such as the carrier claiming a percentage increase and the channel claiming they only want pennies per day. Neither side giving full details due to the confidentiality of contract negotiations, but clearly a dispute where the two sides are each saying the other is wrong.

    Not every decision not to carry a channel or decision not to be carried is a dispute. Contracts end. That is why they have end dates. DISH / Sling TV said they made an offer and were refused. Zee has not disputed that statement.

    BTW: Region Restricted is a flag that DISH adds to the channel. Usually it is used for channels intended for only a portion of DISH's US coverage area (for example AK, HI and PR feeds that are not available in the US or some of the Diginets that might not be available in markets where a conflicting station exists).
