Dish Network has dropped the National Football League-owned sports channels, NFL Network and NFL RedZone, from its programming lineup.

The contract expired on Thursday evening, after the two parties were unable to come to terms on a new distribution agreement.

The NFL said Dish was the first distributor to black out its channels in its 13-year history and has set up a website that lists out television networks that still carry its channels.

The NFL shares broadcast rights to 10 other Thursday Night Football games with Comcast's NBC and CBS.
