FOX Sports Tennessee & Dish Network Update

by Staff Writer / Nashville Predators
Will Nashville Predators fans have to drop Dish Network to see their favorite hockey team this season? That may be the case.

The Predators are scheduled to play 60 times on FOX Sports Tennessee this season. But if you have Dish Network, there is no guarantee that you’ll see any of those games.

Here is the current situation:
  • On October 1, Dish Network dropped FOX Sports Tennessee (and all FSN networks throughout the United States) because it refused to reach a fair agreement with Fox to carry the network.
  • As a result, Predators fans that have Dish Network will miss all Predators games and related programming on FOX Sports Tennessee until a fair agreement can be reached. Dish Network customers will also miss Memphis Grizzlies games, SEC football and basketball and ACC basketball games, as well as other programming. Dish Network customers also currently do not receive FX or the National Geographic Channel.
Dish’s competitors are ready, willing and able to make great offers to fans that don’t want to miss their Predators games. FOX Sports Tennessee is offered by a number of other local distributors in our area (DIRECTV and Comcast among others). Every Predators game televised on FOX Sports Tennessee will be available on these carriers.

What should fans do?
Call 1-877-99-I-PAID (877-994-7243) or go to to learn about other local providers that carry Fox programming.

If you are not a Dish customer, you will not be affected and get to enjoy all of FOX Sports Tennessee’s Predators’ telecasts this season.
