Dish, Fox Hug It Out, Give Customers Back Channels They Were Paying For

Ending a standoff that lasted nearly a month, Fox and Dish decided late last week to stop bickering over viewers’ subscription fees and return It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and related inferior programming to the masses.

Variety reports FX, National Geographic Channel and Fox Sports Net are back on the Dish Network after Fox pulled the channels Oct. 1.

Judged in light of the whipping Fox put on Cablevision, it only makes sense to figure Fox got more money in its Dish deal thanks to the hardball ploy.

If you’re a Dish customer, how did you survive without Sunny and Sons of Anarchy for that long?
