Dish's decision to drop the RSN
TWIN BILL: In Minneapolis, Neal Justin reports Dish subscribers are "closer to seeing" today's scheduled Twins-Yankees game. Dish is "among four cable and satellite providers who have only agreed to televise 105 of the 150 games" airing on FS North this season. However, FS North GM Mike Dimond said that talks "have become 'positive' with Dish." Around 37% of homes in the Minneapolis-St. Paul market are affected by the lack of carriage, but Dimond noted that the number "drops to about 21 percent" if Dish and FS North reach an agreement (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 4/7).
