SNY could disappear from the Dish Network at midnight Thursday, the night before the Mets opener, if the network and satellite company do not reach a new carriage agreement by then.

If SNY’s contract with Dish is not renewed, it will join YES and MSG in leaving the service, meaning no major area pro teams will be on it. (Not counting football, which is part of national packages.)

YES never has been carried by Dish. MSG has been off since October.
