When consumers feel like they haven’t received something they’ve paid for some sort of recourse is inevitable. When the item(s) being withheld is something as sought after as popular cable networks, it would come as no surprise to see such recourse present itself in the form of a class action lawsuit. An example of such can be found in the recently settled (pending final approval) lawsuit known as Padberg v. DISH Network, LLC. The suit was filed over allegations that the Defendant breached its contract with consumers by failing to provide programming from FSN and/or FX without providing a monetary credit equal to the value of the missing channels. However, the Defendant has pushed back claiming that it was not contractually obligated to provide the channels and that substitute programming was provided in their place. At this point it doesn’t appear the final outcome of the dispute will be determined by trial as both parties have agreed to settle the case to avoid the time and expenses of going further into litigation. Those who believe they are eligible for compensation can begin by going to the Padberg DISH Class Action settlement page and clicking the File a Claim tab.
