SALT LAKE CITY, Utah- Fox’s cable sports networks, including FS1, which will broadcast this week’s Utah game, and some local Fox stations have gone dark for customers of Dish because of a dispute over the networks’ cost.

The Utes’ game is set to begin at 8:00 p.m. (MT) on FS1 this Saturday and if the dispute is not resolved Dish subscribers will not be able to watch the game.

Customers of the SlingTV streaming service are also affected as SlingTV is owned by Dish.

Dish is offering affected customers antennas for the Fox network. The network suggests watching NFL games using the TV antenna or the NFL app for mobile.

Tonight’s NFL game featuring the Packers and the Eagles will still be available on the NFL Network or the NFL or Verizon apps.

An online petition encouraging subscribers to “drop Dish” is circulating claiming that “Dish took fox.”

To find out if you are impacted by the outage call 1-800-5337369.
