What's Happening with Your Local Stations

  • DISH pays your local channel owners to carry their channels. When these contracts expire, we negotiate a new agreement.
  • Airwaves are available for free to your local channel owner and they are allowed to sell advertising to generate revenue.
  • Unfortunately, disputes between pay-TV providers and channel owners are not uncommon. All pay-TV providers face disputes with channel owners.
