Dish customers in Los Angeles could be facing a blackout of their favorite NBCUniversal channels

Dish customers in Los Angeles could be facing a blackout of their favorite NBCUniversal channels

If you've been watching the latest Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump Rules or any other Bravo show, you've likely seen the scroll at the top of your TV warning you that your favorite guilty pleasures may be dropped by Dish as early as Sunday, March 20. But it's not just Bravo; NBC and its sister channels—USA, Syfy, MSNBC and CNBC—are all also at risk due to contract negotiations. 

Unless a deal can be met, Dish customers in Los Angeles and a handful of other cities across the country could lose access to those channels and other affiliates within the week. Yes, that means your #ShadySundays will be a little less shady without the Real Housewives of Atlanta going down. 

But NBCUniversal isn't going down without a fight. A spokesperson for the company released a statement expressing disappointment in Dish, and the company has launched a website, www.makedishdeliver.com, providing Dish costumers with information on how to contact their local providers to complain. However, Dish hit back today by filing a lawsuit against NBC saying the company is in breach of contract and calling for an immediate halt to the blackout threats, according to Deadline.

If that doesn't work, we imagine many Angelenos will have some extra time on their hands, so it's a good thing we have you covered with a host of other things to do to fill your time.
