DISH may lose WBNS Channel 10 in Columbus, Ohio
Today, I was watching the Channel 10 news at noon, and they had a crawl announcement that said that Dish network customers will lose Channel 10 on September 1st unless DISH and WBNS can agree on a transmission cost. They had a number for DISH and were advocating that we call DISH and complain.

Another chapter in the never ending story.
Seriously though, chances are you won't loose it and if you do it will only be for a couple of days. True, when we in the Northwest lost the Fisher stations it was for months, but that was an exception. Generally it's just posturing, both sides will come to an agreement (WBNS blinks), and everything goes back to normal.

I wonder what WBNS wants now? They killed ONN (Ohio News Network) and that used to be the big sticking point.THERE= a place. not here - THEIR= belongs to them - THEY'RE = short for "They Are". THEN = a point in time; not now. - THAN = used to compare things.

Some one can win a MEDAL made of a METAL like gold for showing his METTLE (courage)
If something is LOOSE you might LOSE it. Your=belongs to "you" You're short for "you are"

I live in Columbus and this sucks. I already canceled my Dish install because of the BTN thing and now this. Hell we came close to losing our ABC,FOX and CW locals because of the Sinclair deal. Throw in AMC and this stuff is getting ridiculous. Yea I know a lot of you will say it's not Dishes fault and all that but damn. That's a lot of stuff. I all I want is to switch to Dish and get 2 Hoppers and be happy. Looks like that won't happen for a long long while.
Sorry guys just venting some.

You can blame AMC on Dish, but these local channels are being absurd even asking for a dime. They hardly produce any content, all they do is rebroadcast the national feeds.

I agree! It just seems like if it's not one thing it's another that's keeping me from jumping. Think about it... if I would have jumped a month ago and the Sinclair deal would have went south we would have lost our ABC,FOX,CW and possibly our CBS channel now. The Big Ten Network is huge hear in Columbus and that could be gone and we love AMC!!!! I am so glad I haven't jumped yet.
Thanks for all the good info you guys and letting me vent. I appreciate it!
