NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of DISH Network Corp. (DISH - Get Report) are are down -2.63% to $57.80 after Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ - Get Report) CEO Lowell McAdam said the company is not in talks to acquire DISH, according to Bloomberg.

"There's reports out there that we're talking to Dish, but I can tell you that's somebody's fantasy," McAdam said today at the JPMorgan Global Technology, Media and Telecom Conference in Boston. "There have not been any discussions and there aren't any discussions with Dish."
