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.

This seems to happen frequently. The sat providers hold out for more money but in the long run, an agreement will be reached and everyone will be happy until next renewal time. $$$$$

I've got to wonder if anyone would notice?

THV also had a message about the Dish thing scrolling on top of the screen on their TV channel.

I don't know why we can't just get a network feed and skip these local stations. Local news is mostly fluff and football hype.

The cat's name is Johnny, not Skippy.

I have cable so I don't have a dog in the hunt. But, there's not a thing I can think of that I watch on KTHV.
