Dish Network currently do have other international channels. I personally don't watch RT, but Dish Network does air RT. Dish Network also airs China Global Television Network (CGTN).
Dish has an international news package that includes France 24 and Euronews (both in standard definition only) for $5 a month. But you have to get a foreign language pack or the cricket (sport) channel before you are allowed to subscribe to the international news package.
The cricket channel is $15 a month. There are a few foreign language packages for $10 a month.
I used to have this just so I could watch France 24. But I dropped it and added STARZ once I got my Roku (which carries France 24 for free, and in high definition).
Dish also has a regular news pack for $10 a month, that has all the regular news channels that are already available plus BBC World News (standard definition only).
Since all the other channels in the pack are already available as part of most other packages, it essentially amounts to paying $10 a month just for BBC World News.
