Dish and Fox Sports 1 reach an agreement; no college football will be lost
Dish and Fox Sports 1 have worked out there differences, meaning college football fans will be able to watch games on the cable channel.
That's good news for both BYU and Utah fans who are Dish subscribers because both the Cougars and the Utes have games on FS1 in the coming weeks. (That includes BYU at Texas on Sept. 6 and Utah at Oregon State on Oct. 16 - along with other Utah games that have yet to be scheduled, most likely.)
According to Dish, it is "now in the position to deliver full programming" - the games along with the rest of FS1's programming.
Dish has a history of battling various channels and has dropped (at least temporarily) everything from AMC to FX, at least temporarily, over the years.
This time, no programming was lost because the dispute was worked out before the first college football games of 2014 are played.
