Update on WWE/ Dish Network situation



Advertising on the Dish Network for upcoming PPV events does not list Sunday's Elimination Chamber match, and neither side has responded to questions regarding the situation.

Those at Dish Network have not responded to numerous questions past instructions being given to say negotiations are ongonig.  WWE has also not responded.

While there have been threats from DirecTV regarding not carrying PPVs once the WWE launches its network, there would seem to be no reason not to carry the Chamber, because WWE is not undercutting the deal for that show on its network.

The Dish Network has more than 14 million subscribers, meaning just over 14 percent of the total cable and satellite homes in the United States.
