Taking A Stand: WFIE and Dish Network

Taking a Stand: Dish Network Deadline

I would like to take a moment to address our viewers who watch us through Dish Network.

On August 1, there is a chance our signal will be removed from the Dish Network system due to a lack of an agreement between Raycom Media, who owns WFIE, and Dish Network Corporate.

First of all, I'd like to apologize to these viewers for the inconvenience they may face of not being able to watch us. I'd also like to say thank you for your loyalty.

I've talked and emailed with many of you in the last few days and I've heard your passionate comments about possibly not being able to watch our news, newscasters, and NBC shows.

You have choices. WFIE still has agreements with other carriers and is free over the air.

If you would like to call Dish Network and express your concern about possibly losing WFIE from your channel lineup, you can call them at 800-823-4929

You're paying to receive WFIE's signal, ask them for a credit or rebate.

If you would like to respond, please go to the Taking A Stand section on our website, or send a letter to the station at this address:
