Four Disney HD channels go dark on DISH Network


Guess we can forget about ESPN 3D coming to DISH Network any time soon, as the dispute between the satellite company and Disney has escalated to the point that Disney Channel HD, Disney XD HD, ABC Family HD and ESPNews HD have all been removed from the service. They're still available in SD if you really need your The Secret Life of an American Teenager fix, but right now Disney is pointing to a New York State Court ruling from March indicating DISH owes it $65 million, which DISH is appealing. Multichannel News points out there's also a lawsuit between DISH and ESPN still ongoing as well, so we'll have to wait and see if this move helps negotiations along at all.
