AMC Networks (AMCX) goes to trial with Dish Network (DISH) over breach-of-contract claims related to Dish's decision to drop AMC's channels in July. The multi-billion dollar trial boils down to whether or not former AMC-owner Cablevision spent the contractually-required amount of money on programming, but analysts see some hope for a last-minute settlement that will help add shows such as Mad Men and Breaking Bad back to Dish's programming.
