This article focuses on the issue concerning the decision of satellite television provider Dish Network not to include any channels of Lifetime TV network in its line-up of TV programming. Dish Network owner EchoStar argues that Lifetime demanded a price increase under the contract term for carrying its channels. Dish Network has some kind of quota for how many women channels it is willing to carry.
