/// Will AMC Profits Come Back Up After Its Spat With Dish?
After more or less telling investors to batten down the hatches last quarter, AMC Networks has come back with the news it expected: earnings were down last quarter due to the company's protracted carriage dispute with Dish Network. The smackdown appeared to hinge on the settlement size of an unrelated lawsuit: after unceremoniously dropping all AMC offerings as soon as its contract expired earlier this year, Dish refused to negotiate with AMC at all. Then, when the end of the suit neared, Dish appeared to leverage its 14 million subscribers against the mammoth settlement it ultimately agreed to pay AMC in the suit over Voom HD.
