The article reports on the refusal of a judge to issue a preliminary injunction for Voom HD to temporarily block Echostar and Dish Network from relegating its 15 high-definition (HD) networks to a tier. Voom claimed that Echostar was terminating their 15-year carriage deal and wanted to totally drop Voom's HD suite from the Dish Network lineup. Echostar argues that Voom violated a provision of their carriage deal when it agreed to spend $100 million a year on a 21-channel version of the service.
