We got word tonight from an excited Dish Network subscriber... and confirmed on the website of WKYC/3...the satellite TV provider has agreed to carry SportsTime Ohio.
The deal makes STO - as expected - available on Dish channel 431, to subscribers who carry at least the service's "America's Top 60 Plus" package. (We're told the "Plus" part includes access to regional sports networks.)
The final big piece of the puzzle is still out there - DirecTV. We're actually surprised the Dish deal got done sooner, as that service is generally less inclined to carry new regional sports networks.
And there's no way the big Indians fan in our family is going to switch from DirecTV to Dish Network, so here's hoping the two entities come to an agreement before April 4th...or your Primary Editorial Voice will hear an earful!
