No progress between Fox Sports South & Dish Network

More than a week after Fox Sports networks said Atlanta Dish Network subscribers were going to be blocked out of 47 Braves games this season, nothing has been resolved between the two parties.

Dish users will miss all three Braves-Mets games this weekend set to air on Fox Sports South.

The 47 games affected were originally going to air on Peachtree TV, but Fox Sports bought them out in February to air on either Fox Sports South or Sporuts South.

Dish subscribers will be able to view the other 80 or so games.

You can see which specific games Dish subscribers will miss here.

And here are details of the conflict.

Fox released this statement Friday afternoon:

“Dish appears to have no interest in working towards an agreement to carry these games, and no progress has been made toward resolving this issue for metro Atlanta Braves fans."

As they noted, "AT&T U-Verse, DIRECTV, XFINITY, and Charter will all carry ALL Braves games on FOX Sports South and SportSouth this season."
