ABSTRACT
A federal judge in Miami, Florida, refused to bow to broadcaster pressure and ruled that EchoStar Communications Corp. may continue to provide local television signals and distant networks signals to eligible satellite customers. But EchoStar has to cut off within a few months hundreds of thousands of Dish Network customers who currently pay to receive packages of out-of-market signals from CBS, NBC, ABC, and Fox. He also noted that EchoStar had paid $40 million in copyright royalties. Some customers might lose some network signals.
