It looks like lawyers for EchoStar Communications Corp. and The Walt Disney
Co. want more time to work out a settlement in their carriage dispute.

A hearing scheduled for Monday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles has been
postponed until April 8. It's already been pushed back several times.

EchoStar wants to drop ABC Family, and it has argued that News Corp.'s sale
of the former Fox Family Channel clears the way for it to drop the
network.
