Sons of Anarchy Exec: Dump Dish!
By Swanni

Washington, D.C. (October 5, 2010) -- Kurt Sutter, executive producer of FX's Sons of Anarchy, has joined his network's fight against Dish Network by calling on viewers to dump the satellite TV service.

Dish Network last week was forced to drop the Fox-owned FX, National Geographic Channel and 19 Fox regional sports networks after it couldn't reach a new programming agreement with Fox.

Dish says Fox is asking for an "unconscionable" price increase to carry the channels. If it agreed to it, Dish says, it would be forced to raise its subscriber costs. (Fox says Dish's claim is untrue.)

However, on his Twitter page, Sutter calls Echostar (Dish's sister company and the former name for Dish's TV service) "whores" and says people should "dump Dish," according to a report in Variety.

The producer tells Dish subscribers that "you're already paying more for FX than every other cable/satellite company in the world." In another tweet, Sutter concludes that Dish viewers shouldn't let (Dish) "f--- you out of your Sons."
