The Stars have spoken with FOX Sports Southwest several times about this stalemate, as it is a priority of ours to get all of these games available to our fans. FOX Sports Southwest is doing everything it can to get these games on Dish Network and has been in constant discussions with the distributor. It has also made this a priority to make sure that all fans have access to every televised Stars game on the network. If you aren’t receiving all Stars telecasts, we encourage you to contact Dish Network and demand that they carry the full-schedule of games on FOX Sports Southwest.
