Lifetime Refuses to Do the Dishes

Lifetime says it has rejected a "take it or leave it" offer from Dish Network to put its networks back on the air.

“The Network For Women”, as it calls itself, is reportedly seeking a 76 percent rate hike from the company, said the offer was “unfair and unreasonable.” Echostar, who owns Dish Network, was actually seeking to cut Lifetime’s fees by a third. Sounds like they ain’t even close.

In fact, Dish has already replaced Lifetime Movie Network- maybe permanently- with competitor Oxygen.

In related news, Valerie Bertinelli’s handlers report her royalty payments have dropped by half since the bitter split.
