COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS (AP) - Texas A&M is offering a deal to Dish subscribers caught in the middle of a corporate dispute.

Dish subscribers stopped receiving access to Fox Sports’ 19 regional sports networks, FX and the National Geographic Channel on Oct. 1 when a multiyear deal expired and Dish refused to pay a rate increase for the programming.

That means Aggies fans would miss Saturday’s home game against No. 21 Missouri.

Athletics director Bill Byrne says fans who prove they are Dish subscribers can buy half-price tickets. About 5,000 tickets remain for the game against the undefeated Tigers.
