    My local Fox station owned by Raycom just ran a scroll across the screen warning viewers that service will likely be interrupted on Dish Network if a retransmission dispute cannot be resolved in short order. I missed the scroll at the beginning so I am not sure what it said. But they were urging viewers to call Dish to pressure them to cave in.

    So the question is, is this a Raycom-wide dispute? I know that Raycom has a sports channel they want to get out everywhere.

    Jonesboro, Ar, and Memphis Raycom stations were running ads about Dish. Haven't seen one in a couple weeks.
    One of the ads said 'Call Dish tell them you pay full price you should get all the channels'.
    I wanted to call them and ask if they're going to give refunds to their advertisers, after all they're paying full price to run ads.

    WBTV, Charlotte CBS is raycom owned, the GM was on the air telling people to call Dish and ask for a "Credit or rebate" I'd rather lose the channel(s) for a week or two and get $5 or $10 off for a while.

    Yes... great coverage from WBTV here, plus I get clear QAM on cable, so not really an issue for me.

    The local Raycom channel just used a 15 second local insert at 7:20pm to run a slick promo with the following voice-over:
    Attention Dish Network Customers: Fox 19, you local Fox station, may no longer be available on Dish Network as of midnight July 31. That means you could miss Master Chef, Cincinnati Reds Baseball, and the best local news and weather. You have choices. Fox 19 remains available on Time Warner Cable, DirecTV, and all other local TV providers; and free over the air. Visit www.fox19.com to learn more.

    The promo used to Dish Logo in this promo.

    From what I understand, all Raycom TV stations are airing similar 15 second spots here and there.

    Good luck with that. You signed a contract that with those provisions in mind.

    From the statements, it is abundantly clear that the contract ends July 31, 2013.

    They've been running the "PSAs" since July 2nd or earlier.

    I guess it is cheaper than paying to conduct a formal survey to figure out if anybody cares. The dangerous part about appealing at this point in the annual broadcast TV cycle (reruns and more reruns) is that except for baseball fans, there's probably not to many who going to be all that up-in-arms.

    WTOL/11 and WUPW/FOX-36 in Toledo are running the same ad. Shouldn't affect me, as I receive those channels over-the-air. I expect not to have any guide info, though.

    I get WBTV using the Hopper OTA module. So if there is a temporary lapse in the sat feed I can still watch it OTA.

    I've grown so weary of local news, in general. For the most part they sensationalize stories, seemingly create news, etc, that I just don't watch local news like I used to. All it does is make me mad at what they - the stations - consider "news". I mostly watch it for weather forecasts, therefore WBTV would not be a big loss for me. Like others, I get a decent OTA signal from but I also get a better OTA signal from WSPA. So, if DISH drops them, I'm not CBS-less.

    This list is mostly correct, but they have some secondary channels too,
    and I have a feeling that Raycom is asking for all their stations to be carried in all markets and since E* doesn't carry the sub channels in most markets that may be part of it. I do think that Raycom may have to back off after all their stations go down to hundreds of thousands of viewers. They will get more nervous when starts getting close to fall premieres of the new shows and new schedule takes place. Then they will be sticking it to themselves if they are off during sweeps in Oct.

    I know they want Bounce to be carried in this area. That is the local channel's secondary channel. I know it's not going to happen.

    Yes, through the OTA tuner and your antenna. You might not get the guide info in your Dish receiver though.
