Carriage dispute between Dish Network and Tegna means 64 stations dropped from satellite TV service, warns USA TODAY

From USA TODAY:

A dispute between satellite TV provider Dish and media company Tegna has resulted in the removal of TV stations in more than 50 U.S. markets being removed from the pay TV service.

Tegna had begun alerting Dish subscribers earlier in the week they could lose access to local stations at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday because the two companies could not reach a new carriage agreement for its station.

Headquartered in Tysons Corner, Virginia, Tegna has 64 stations in 51 U.S. markets including Atlanta, Denver, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Washington, Buffalo, N.Y., and Knoxville, Tenn.

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.”
