Gannett/Dish Fight over "The Hopper"
Seems Gannett, parent company of KTHV/Channel 11, doesn't like DISH Network's "The Hopper". According to Reuters Gannett has threatened to pull broadcasting with DISH if it doesn't block the commercial skipping feature on "The Hopper". Gannett and DISH are in an agreement squabble in several markets including Little Rock. "If Dish refuses to reach a deal before midnight, October 7 Dish subscribers could lose their local Gannett station and access to some of the year's best programming," Gannett said.
