Dish restores Turner channels to lineup a month after satellite TV provider dropped them

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Turner Broadcasting channels such as Cartoon Network and CNN are back on the Dish network after being dropped from the satellite TV provider’s lineup during contract talks.

Other Turner channels restored to Dish’s programming include Boomerang, Adult Swim, HLN, truTV, CNN en Espanol and Turner Classic Movies. They also agreed to extend carrying TBS and TNT.

Shares of Englewood, Colorado-based Dish rose $1.48, or 2.1 per cent, to $73.70 on Friday while shares of Turner Broadcasting parent Time Warner Inc. fell 54 cents to $80.05.
