From a press release from FSS:

DISH Network Customers in the Metro Atlanta Area Stand to Miss 45-Plus Braves Games on FOX Sports South, Starting on Friday, April 26

 All 150-Plus Atlanta Braves Games on FOX Sports South and SportSouth are available on AT&T U-verse, Charter, DIRECTV, and XFINITY in the Metro Atlanta Area

FOX Sports South has added 45-plus Braves games to its schedule this season and will televise an all-time high 150-plus games.  All Metro Atlanta video providers have agreed to offer these additional games to their customers, except DISH Network.

DISH Network customers in the Metro Atlanta area could miss nearly one-third of all Braves local telecasts this season, starting on Friday, April 26 with Braves versus the defending American League Champion Detroit Tigers.

“Fox has made these 45-plus games available to all television providers in the area including Dish. Unfortunately, Dish is choosing not to provide these additional games to their metro Atlanta area customers,” said Senior Vice President and General Manager of FOX Sports South and SportSouth Jeff Genthner.  “Fortunately, Braves fans in the metro Atlanta area have options, as all other distributors including AT&T U-verse, Charter, DIRECTV and XFINITY will be carrying these games.”

My parents - who have DISH - are not going to be happy. Anyone else affected by this?
