DISH Network (NASDAQ:DISH) announced that Monday night Turner Networks removed Boomerang, Cartoon Network, CNN, CNN en Espa~nol, HLN, truTV and Turner Classic Movies from the DISH programming lineup. The two companies have been unable to negotiate the terms of a renewed distribution agreement, and Turner refused to extend the overall agreement.

“In the past year, DISH has successfully renewed agreements with many large content providers,” said Warren Schlichting, DISH senior vice president of Programming. “As a result, we are confident that we have offered a deal to Turner that reflects an appropriate value for our customers.”

“DISH has had a productive relationship with Turner Networks for many years,” said Schlichting. “We regret the service disruption to our customers, and remain committed to reaching an agreement that promptly returns this content to DISH’s programming lineup.”
