Dish Adds Byron Allen's Justice Central.TV to Lineup

Byron Allen-owned Entertainment Studios’ Justice Central.TV network has inked a carriage deal with Dish Network, the company announced Thursday.

The Dish deal gives Justice Central.Tv, which launched in 2012, more than 40 million subscribers. The deal is a rare distribution agreement for Dish, which has recently been involved in disputes with content providers over licensing fees.

Allen said Justice Central.TV is a "terrific network, and we don't charge a subscription fee, which helps MVPD's in an environment where the cost of content is out of control."

He added: “I am very proud of our new relationship with Dish and I am highly confident their subscribers will enjoy the network."

Dish vice president of programming Andy LeCuyer also said that Justice Central.TV "represents a successful and underserved genre. Our customers now have the perfect destination for a wide variety of the best court shows available to them around the clock from the largest producer of television court programming.”
