Turner Networks Removes Channels from DISH as Contract Deadline Passes

DISH Network (NASDAQ: DISH) announced that Monday night Turner Networks removed Boomerang, Cartoon Network, CNN, CNN en Español, HLN, truTV and Turner Classic Movies from the DISH programming lineup. The two companies have been unable to negotiate the terms of a renewed distribution agreement, and Turner refused to extend the overall agreement.

“In the past year, DISH has successfully renewed agreements with many large content providers,” said Warren Schlichting, DISH senior vice president of Programming. “As a result, we are confident that we have offered a deal to Turner that reflects an appropriate value for our customers.”

“DISH has had a productive relationship with Turner Networks for many years,” said Schlichting. “We regret the service disruption to our customers, and remain committed to reaching an agreement that promptly returns this content to DISH’s programming lineup.”

The Pokémon Company Support has posted a thread on their FAQ page in regards to a number of issues with the Pokémon October 2014 Newsletter distribution. Many people have yet to receive their codes via email and some that have received the email have received blank codes. Players in the United States and Canada have already had to wait a week for the demo compared to many countries in the world and they are now having to wait even longer. Nintendo has had a number issues this year releasing digital content via the Nintendo Network including the delayed release of Pokémon Bank.

Pokémon Support - Updated Posting - 10/21/14 6:04 PM PST

We believe that the issue with code images not appearing in the October Pokémon newsletter have been resolved. Users should now be able to view their code simply by reopening the original newsletter email. If this doesn't work immediately, users can click the "Having trouble viewing this email? View this email online." at the top right of the newsletter image.

Any users still not able to view their codes are encouraged to reopen a service ticket.

For users who signed up for the newsletter prior to 10/20 and still have not received it, we ask that you be patient.

Because of the large volume of newsletters sent, there could be some delays as they make their way through the various internet providers and networks, leading to some users receiving their newsletters before other users.

We believe that all newsletters should deliver within the next few days. We recommend that you check your junk email folders and again make sure that pokemon@email.pokemon.com has been added to your safe senders list.

I haven't received my Alpha Ruby/Omega Sapphire demo code - Original Message

It has come to our attention that some users have not yet received their copy of the newsletter, and that some who have are reporting that the code for the Alpha Ruby/Omega Sapphire Demo is not appearing properly in the message.

Because of the large volume of newsletters sent, there could be some delays as they make their way through the various internet providers and networks, leading to some users receiving their newsletters before other users.

We’re working closely with our service partner to resolve the issue of non-displaying codes and hope to see the issue resolved shortly. This should not require us to re-send the message as once the error is corrected users will then see the code appear in their original newsletter email.

We will update this article as we receive information, and we encourage you to click the subscribe link so that you are notified as we update this issue.

For users who didn't subscribe to the Pokemon.com newsletter in time, check out some of the other ways you can receive a demo code at Nintendo.com

Thank you, Pokémon Support
