I know missing a local channel is upsetting. The fact is, only the channel owners can choose to remove their content from DISH customers. We are working to reach a mutual agreement. Switching is not the answer as every Pay TV provider has disputes with channel owners. Staying tells channel owners that, while their programming is great, they need to be reasonable. You can get updates regarding negotiations online at DISHpromise.com
These channels are free with an Over the Air antenna, and local can be removed from most DISH packages.
This is why dish needs to contact me I have an Idea to give dish an advantage the local channels will drop their price.
WDMN627, we know how much this impacts you and your family. Quincy Media is demanding an unreasonable rate increase, which is more than double what we currently pay for their channels. DISH offered to match the rates paid by other pay-TV providers; Quincy Media refused this offer. Make sure to visit: https://www.mydish.com/promise for all up-to-date information on the negotiations.
