TV News 1-5-19: Dish, SHIELD,

So far, AT&T is holding fast with having pulled HBO from DISH and Sling TV during their carrier fee negotiations. HBO pulled their content from DISH on November 1st and I'm not missing it. Industry experts seem to be thinking that AT&T is holding out HBO for their own Netflix-like streaming service that they may be starting up this year.  We'll see.
