AMC Is Preparing to See a Lot More Trouble From Dish

Cable company upbeat but vague about upfront

The shadow of the impending Dish Network lawsuit loomed large over AMC's earnings call this morning. The cable network company is suing Dish for $2.5 billion in damages and has received several favorable rulings, including one against Dish for destroying evidence. "We believe that as a direct result of the litigation, and in an attempt to create leverage for itself in that litigation, Dish ended carriage of AMC networks," CEO Josh Sapan said on the call.
