Game, set, match

I guess Dish is playing hardball in their dispute with Citadel Communications.

Dish has removed channel 407, formerly Gol TV, from its on-air programming guide.

It’s really sad when a couple of multi-million dollar companies can’t iron out a deal.

The real losers here are us.

Here’s what I don’t get. Why is it that a company that increased its second-quarter revenue by $88 million (Citadel) has to have more money from a company that, for the first time in its history, lost subscribers (25K) in the same quarter?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m sure Dish shoulders some of the blame here. But Citadel seems to be in a lot better position to comprimise than does Dish.
