Dish Network Cancels CNN Programming Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Oct 21, 2014, 09:04 pm

The Dish Network is saying, "no mas" to CNN and CNN en Espanol.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "Channels such as Cartoon Network and CNN are no longer part of Dish's programming lineup as a deadline has passed for the satellite TV provider and Turner Broadcasting to renew their distribution agreement."

CNN struggles with low TV viewer rating and is unable to pay Dish Network to remain on the satellite dish's netwrok of channels.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, "Dish Network Corp. said Tuesday that Turner refused to extend the overall deal. But Turner— a division of Time Warner Inc. — said in a statement that it has worked for months to come up with a fair agreement and that the two sides have been unable to reach a deal."

CNN is headed towards the brink of bankruptcy.
