The satellite tv for pc TV supplier has renewed its cope with A+E Networks to maintain all that kooky, fake-informational content material flowing into your dwelling rooms. That by itself is not a lot to get labored up over, however this is the kicker: The renewal additionally means Dish now has the rights to stream reside and on-demand exhibits by means of a “future multi-stream subscription service”… also referred to as the web tv service it has been making an attempt to get off the bottom.
