Dish, Turner Are Talking


As of late last week, EchoStar Communications Corp. and Turner Broadcasting System Inc. were still trying to nail down new deals for a half dozen of the programmer’s channels, which Dish Network was hinting it might drop.

At press time last Friday, EchoStar and Turner were still negotiating and trying to close agreements for the continued carriage of Cable News Network, Headline News, CNNfn, Cartoon Network, Turner Classic Movies, Boomerang and Turner South.
