Well, well, well. Seems like just yesterday we were screaming from the rooftops to be prepared for a possible DISH/Sinclair carriage dispute. Here we are again, but this time the battle is between Tegna and Dish Network. It appears that Dish and Tegna did not give their customers very much warning, and now 64 Tegna stations have been dropped from Dish Network.
Here’s a great quote from an article Mike Snider of USA Today:
“Dish said nearly 3 million customers in 53 markets – including ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and other stations – were affected. The TV provider charged Tegna with “using customers as negotiation leverage, demanding a massive fee increase to nearly a billion dollars and holding viewers hostage during football season.”
Now, time for the facts: with a TV antenna, your local, broadcast stations and networks will ALWAYS BE FREE. You will never be left in the dark.
Dish customers, pick up your TV antenna today and don’t miss a moment of your favorite shows. There is an option through Dish to remove your local stations and save $12 a month, so you can get an antenna, save $144 a year on your Dish bill AND still have access to your local stations!
