No Super Bowl KTEN LOCAL REMOVED. You breached our contract dont care about excuses
I understand it can be frustrating losing out on your local programming during a high profile event. However, we are not able to agree to unreasosonable terms set forth by Lockwood Broadcasting. They've asked DISH and their customers to pay twice as much what we currently pay for their programming.
DISH has offered to match the rates paid by all other pay-TV providers, but Lockwood refused this offer. The quickest rising cost in the television industry is the fee that television providers pay local channel owners like Lockwood to retransmit their signal to customers.
In the end, this means that only Lockwood Broadcasting can choose to remove their content from DISH customers.
We are working around the clock to reach a reasonable agreement as soon as possible.
Don't be fooled by DISH. I have had DISH for years both at my girlfriend's house and mine. DISH is the ONLY TV provider where these disputes happen on a REGULAR basis which results in us losing our local channel(s). Look it up.
After looking it up, it appears that all companies are affected, and Dish and Directv have a comparable amount of disputes and down time.
