A new year, a new carriage deal war: Comcast-owned cable channels E! and Style may have their signals pulled off Dish Network after Friday when their current carriage deal expires, according to TheWrap.com.
"We are in active negotiations with DISH Network. We are trying to reach a fair agreement, however, it is our belief they will once again turn their backs on their subscribers by dropping the networks and holding E! and Style fans hostage," Comcast said in a statement. "In actively choosing to discontinue these two networks, Dish is denying their subscribers E!, the ultimate network for entertainment fans with marquee January events from exclusive coverage of Red Carpet season to the premiere of the new season of the Kardashian show Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and Style, the home of transformations, from fashion, to beauty to home, featuring all-new seasons of Kimora and Jerseylicious."
A call to Dish Network was not immediately returned.
