Dish Network drops CSNNE, Celtics’ broadcast home

Dish Network dropped Comcast SportsNet New England — the television home of the Celtics, as well as numerous other programs — Wednesday morning after ending negotiations on a carrier extension.

The contract expired June 30, but the sides agreed on a month-long extension through July and then two 24-hour extensions in August before Dish Network pulled the plug.

Here is the gist of CSNNE’s statement about Dish Network’s decision:

“We are disappointed that Dish has decided to drop CSN New England. CSN New England offered Dish terms reflective of the economics accepted by the network’s other distributors and to extend the current terms as negotiations continued.

“Dish declined these offers . . . We encourage all Dish customers in New England to contact Dish directly and voice their concerns.”

Efforts to get comment from Dish Network were unsuccessful.
