Latest DISH Network consumer news: NFL Media, Dish Network Reach Carriage Agreement For NFL Network, NFL RedZone

NFL Media and Dish Network Corporation have reached a new carriage agreement for NFL Network and NFL RedZone. Distribution of both networks has been restored on Dish TV and Sling TV (as part of the Sling TV Blue package) today, the first Sunday of the 2020 NFL regular season. The last agreement ended in June. NFL Media said at the time it “remains committed to negotiating an agreement and has offered terms consistent with those in place with other distributors.” Without a distribution agreement in place for NFL Network and NFL RedZone, Dish and Sling subscribers missed daily shows Good Morning Football, NFL Total Access and NFL Now, and the newly launched Player’s Choice series featuring classic games and long-form storytelling from the NFL Films archive. The NFL Network features a slate of exclusive games. Those include a trio of matchups at the start of the NFL season and two Saturday doubleheaders in Weeks 15 & 16. In addition to games, Sunday coverage on NFL Network features the Emmy-nominated NFL GameDay Morning.

KeyBank headlines: KeyBank celebrates new branch by making $181K in local grants

On the heels of opening a retail branch on Buffalo’s East Side, KeyBank N.A. is providing $181,000 in grant funding to organizations and initiatives doing work in the city's Delavan-Grider neighborhood. The investments were announced during the bank’s June 27 grand opening of the office at 752 E. Delavan Ave. The site opened to the public on June 3. Christopher Gorman, president of banking, and Don Graves, head of corporate responsibility and community relations, made the trip from Cleveland to Buffalo to announce the grants. KeyBank is the banking arm of KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY) and the second-largest deposit taker in the eight counties of Western New York. “We’re going to make this work,” Gorman said of the branch. “We believe this is going to transform the neighborhood.”

Latest KeyBank consumer news: Lawsuit against client details suspected fraud against KeyBank

A lawsuit filed by KeyBank N.A. reveals more details about suspected fraudulent activity by a business client. The complaint – which was initially filed July 9 with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio and amended a day later – alleges that KeyBank lost or is at risk of losing about $122 million as a result of the “willful breaches and fraudulent conduct” of an Indiana-based payroll processor and its CEO. The lawsuit names Interlogic Outsourcing Inc. and Najeeb Khan as defendants. Interlogic is based in Elkhart, Indiana; Khan is based in Michigan. Parent company KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY) told regulators July 16 that it discovered fraudulent activity that could cost the bank up to $90 million. In a statement, the bank said it is investigating a “processing irregularity” and believes the event is an isolated incident.
