CNN and Turner Networks went blank on Dish satellite systems after the companies failed to reach agreement on terms of compensation, and Charlie Ergen, head of Dish calls it a non-event. And with good reason; CNN was an important news station 15 to 20 years ago, but they've done nothing over the recent years (unless you call their non-stop "reporting" on the fact that nobody knows where the Malasian Airlines plane went a case of solid journalism).
Basically, Dish customers are losing a third-rate "news" channel, the Cartoon Network, and some other minor stuff. They'll aso save money by not having to pay Ted Turner for the junk. Nobody's going to miss the Chicken Noodle Network, most likely.
