Before Christmas, the Dish network removed Fox News from their TV lineup. Many subscribers are not happy and mounting social media attacks. The contractual dispute between Fox News and Dish is not on the mend, as many Dish customers had wished for.
That leaves an open slot left by Fox in Dish’s line-up and time is money. Dish has found a replacement.
Fox will be replaced with Glenn Beck’s media network, The Blaze. This is certainly great news for Beck, who was once a Fox reporter. He wrote on Facebook earlier this week:
“When I left Fox News in 2011, I had a question in my mind that I couldn’t stop thinking about. Can man rule himself? Can a guy with a dream, surrounded by a team of committed individuals, disrupt the system and pioneer a new kind of media company? I built TheBlaze because I believe the answer to be ‘YES’.”

.@mikeizzo1993 They'll watch The Blaze, which Dish apparently temporarily relocated to Fox News' lineup slot. Not an improvement.

Found it interesting that The Blaze took the Fox News channel spot on Dish Network. Guess Conservatives can only have one option
