Negotiations like this are becoming more common. Dish no longer carries the AMC Network because of a contract dispute. DirecTv temporarily took Viacom networks like Comedy Central and Nickelodeon off the air during negotiations. Sinclair will continue to negotiate with Dish to reach an agreement before the deadline. In the meantime, remember you can watch our signal FREE over the air, and it is available from DirecTv and your local cable company. You can also go one step further.
If you're a Dish subscriber, you can tell them whatever station you're concerned about by calling Dish at 1.888.926.5457 and telling them you want these stations.
We've reached out to Dish Network for a comment for several days. Today, Dish released a statement saying Sinclair was asking for rates higher than they would agree to pay some other channels. Our parent company says the rate request is far less than what Dish is paying for channels that are far less popular than ours.
