If the affiliates are reasonable, so is DISH. If DISH were perpetually the bad guy and totally unreasonable, this and most all other affiliate disputes wouldn't get done. Gives me more reason to think the current two affiliate disputes are not all the fault of DISH.

I hope this means HD sometime in the future. The SD locals in Parkersburg, WV are so bad that The Price is Right looks like a mosiac.
