Update: Dish Reaches Deal With Tegna; Blackout Lifted


Dish and Tegna announced this afternoon that they have reached a multi-year carriage agreement. The 49 Tegna-owned local network affiliates in 39 markets have been returned to Dish’s lineup.

The two companies, which engaged in a similar blackout in 2015, were fighting over carriage fees — how much Dish should pay to carry the stations.

Tegna and Dish did not reveal terms of the new agreement.

    Hey TV answer Man, what the hell happened to commercials paying for our tv service? Up until the 90’s mainly, TV was free to everyone. It still is if you live close enough and have the right antenna, but the cable and satellite industries were greedy and started charging an arm and a leg AND doubled the commercials AND shortened all the shows from like 30-50 episode per year to 8-16 per year AND now they, the tv actors, are stupid rich making several hundred thousand $$$$ PER 18 MINUTE EPISODES and we pay now OUT THE ASS for them.

    Remember when TV was FREE and the commercials paid for everything? Still is if you live close enough. These greedy cable and dish companies overcharges us about 5X too much AND they reduced the standard show’s season by reducing them from 30-52 episodes to 8-16’ish episodes per season AND trippled the commercials AND reduced the show’s length to 15-18 minutes long AND now the actors are all millionaires for mediocre acting. Hell Seinfeld has $860 million networth. He’s a stand up comic and never really been in a movie. He and Larry David have made $2.7 Bil since the last episode aired just off of reruns. Heck, Jerry doubles the big screen actor Tom Cruise with a net worth of $480 Mil. Just goes to show where our damed money is going to!!
