Opening Day Strikeout: Dish Blocks Four RSNs In Latest Carriage Feud


It’s Opening Day for Major League Baseball. And, no joke, every team except the Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox will be in action, as the game was postponed due to rain in the forecast.

That’s good news for O’s fans, sort of, who subscribe to Dish and its Sling vMVPD wanted to watch the game. Had the game been played, they would have been “blacked out.”

Cough it up to another carriage agreement whiff between the direct broadcast satellite services provider and an owner of a cable or TV station.
