Comcast SportsNet California and Dish Network have finally come to an agreement to get the network back on for subscribers, that according to Multichannel News. The channel was pulled from the Dish lineup at midnight on November 24, 2010, after Comcast and Dish could not come to an agreement about pricing even under FCC arbitration. Dish was out of contract with Comcast for over a year.
Comcast SportsNet California provides San Jose Sharks, Sacramento Kings, Oakland A’s and other sports-related programming for subscribers in the Dish market area. The network can be found on Dish channel 409.
“Dish Network is an important distribution partner, and this agreement ensures that Dish Network customers receive the best local sports programming in Northern California,” said Comcast Sports Group president Jon Litner.
