Dish restores Turner channels to lineup

Turner Broadcasting channels such as Cartoon Network and CNN are back on the Dish network after being dropped from the satellite TV provider's lineup during contract talks.

Dish stopped carrying some of the Turner Broadcasting channels in October. The two companies said Friday that they mutually decided on a short-term extension to restore the service but declined further comment.

Other Turner channels restored to Dish's programming include Boomerang, Adult Swim, HLN, truTV, CNN en Espanol and Turner Classic Movies. They also agreed to extend carrying TBS and TNT.

Shares of Englewood, Colorado-based Dish rose $1.48, or 2.1 percent, to $73.70 on Friday while shares of Turner Broadcasting parent Time Warner Inc. fell 54 cents to $80.05.
