Taking a Stand: Dish Network Deadline - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports

Taking a Stand: Dish Network Deadline

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

On Wednesday, July 31, there is a chance our signal will be removed from the Dish system due to a lack of an agreement between Raycom Media, who owns WFIE TV, and Dish Satellite 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 network  shows. You have choices.

WFIE TV 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 1-888-615-3725. You're paying to receive WFIE TV's signal, so ask them for a credit or rebate.
