12:02 EDTDISH21st Century Fox blacks out Fox News and Business for DISH
Tonight, 21st Century Fox (FOXA,FOX) blocked DISH (DISH) customer access to Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, as the media conglomerate introduced other channels into negotiations despite those channels not being included in the contract up for renewal. DISH Network is a wholly owned subsidiary of DISH Network Corporation . “It’s like we’re about to close on a house and the realtor is trying to make us buy a new car as well,” said Warren Schlichting, DISH senior vice president of programming. “Fox blacked out two of its news channels, using them as leverage to triple rates on sports and entertainment channels that are not in this contract.” This service disruption comes despite DISH’s offer of a short-term contract extension that would preserve the channels as the two parties continue to negotiate. “DISH has had a productive relationship with Fox for many years,” added 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.”

11:14 EDTDISHNetflix rises after MKM downplays production risks, DISH deal announced
Shares of Netflix (NFLX) are climbing after research firm MKM Partners recommended that investors buy shares of the online streaming service heading into the New Year. The shares could triple or quadruple over the next four to five years, the firm predicted. WHAT'S NEW: Some believe that Netflix's stepped up content production increases its risk, MKM analyst Rob Sanderson reported. However, Netflix's movie content purchase deals carry similar risk and the company's massive content portfolio insulates it from risk, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, Sanderson disagrees with initial reviews of Netflix's "Marco Polo" series. The series is no "Games of Thrones," but the season of "Marco Polo" as a whole is better than the first few episodes, Sanderson believes. Netflix should benefit more than expected from the advent of 4K resolution and the company should announce partnerships with cable companies at a faster rate next year, the analyst indicated. He continues to identify the stock as his favorite large-cap name and estimates that it could triple or quadruple over the next four or five years. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Satellite broadcaster DISH (DISH) earlier today announced that it had become the first major pay-TV provider in the U.S. to integrate the Netflix app into its set-top box. The app gives customers the ability to instantly stream Netflix movies and TV shows, DISH added. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Netflix gained 3.4% to $327.21.
09:53 EDTDISHDISH integrates Netflix into set-top box
DISH (DISH) today became the first major pay-TV provider in the U.S. to integrate the Netflix (NFLX) app into its set-top box. Available on DISH’s second-generation Hopper, the app gives customers the ability to instantly stream Netflix movies and TV shows, including “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black,” from the same platform used to access their linear television channels. The Netflix app will rollout to DISH customers throughout the day. The Netflix app is currently available on all broadband-connected second-generation Hopper set-top boxes. In the coming months, DISH expects the app to rollout to Joey, Super Joey and Wireless Joey clients. Additionally, in the future, titles available on Netflix could be integrated into the search functionality across live, recorded and Video On Demand programs for both the Hopper as well as DISH’s forthcoming OTT service.
