With networks like TheBlaze, we continue to offer DISH customers access to channels that represent a wide range of news, opinions and perspectives on today’s most important issues.
TheBlaze Inc. and DISH Network L.L.C. have reached a multi-year renewal agreement for continued carriage of TheBlaze, Glenn Beck’s news, information and entertainment network.
Launched on DISH in September 2012, Glenn Beck's TheBlaze is dedicated to delivering high quality programming 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Led by Beck's daily TV show, the network is part of DISH's selection of news and commentary programming representing all points on the political spectrum.
"We’re proud to have been the first pay-TV provider to offer TheBlaze, kicking off the network’s TV launch with a bang, and we’re pleased to continue our partnership," said Warren Schlichting, DISH senior vice president of programming. "With networks like TheBlaze, we continue to offer DISH customers access to channels that represent a wide range of news, opinions and perspectives on today’s most important issues."
Lynne Costantini, President of Business Development at TheBlaze said, “Three years ago, and with customer demand and innovation in their sights, DISH took a chance on our brand by being the first MVPD to launch TheBlaze. Not only was TheBlaze unproven in the linear MVPD space at the time, it was and continues to be a network that coexists with an online subscription network. TheBlaze looks forward to continuing to partner and innovate with DISH bringing original programming with a unique point of view to its customers and our fans across multiple platforms.”
TheBlaze is available to DISH viewers on channel 212 as part of DISH's America's Top 250 package or a la carte for $5 a month.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
