Sinclair TV Stations Go Dark on Dish

Dish Network subscribers no longer are receiving Sinclair Broadcasting stations.  Dish and Sinclair have been in a retransmission spat for weeks now. Reports say Dish had made extension offers to Sinclair but the Sinclair was holding out to try and leverage distribution for a cable channel it does not own yet.  Sinclair wants to start a cable channel focused on college and high school sports.  The blackout effects more than 150 Sinclair owned stations, including KATV/Channel 7/Little Rock.

UPDATE: Well the blackout didn't last long.  The Associated Press reports Sinclair and Dish have come to an agreement in principle. The stations will return to the air ASAP while the agreement is finalized.  And of course the details can't be released.

They'll just show an ABC affiliate from NY or LA. No big loss.

Leave it to the gov't to screw up TV! I could get every transmitter from LR and KAIT 8 from Jonesboro and KY3 from Springfield, MO rarely, but now I get nothing but AETN that comes and goes. Same antenna, but the digital signals are not consistent!
I was fine with a little fuzz.
Now I have to use online resources just to watch local news. I hate dish companies, but lots of us rural viewers use them to watch KATV, so Sinclair better chill unless they want more ratings losses.

I'd rather see another ABC affiliate on Dish anyway. At least network shows wouldn't be preempted for the Razorblacks.
