11 and DISH in Fee Squabble
KTHV/Channel 11/Little Rock is in a squabble with Dish Network over retransmission fees. A message on the station's website says DISH subscribers could lose KTHV October 8th if an agreement isn't reached. A message from the stations states, We cannot speak for DISH. But here is what our viewers should know: KTHV is committed to reaching fair, market-based agreements with all the video service providers in our area. Our track record shows that we have successfully reached such deals time and time again. That is why DISH's refusal to reach an agreement with us is disappointing. It is our hope that DISH will change course and reach a deal because it is unfair for customers to lose one minute of KTHV programming.
