Dishpromise.com says it is a White Knight Broadcasting dispute. I have never heard of them.

"White Knight Broadcasting and Your Local Station
We are currently experiencing a dispute with White Knight Broadcasting and your local station is impacted by these negotiations.

White Knight Broadcasting is asking for a significant price increase for their local channel. You may be willing to pay more for this channel, but we hope you understand that many others are counting on us to hold the line.

White Knight Broadcasting refused an extension to keep the station on our local lineup while we continue to negotiate. We are continuing discussions and are working around the clock to reach a resolution."

What's new it seems DISH always has a dispute with somebody. Usually settled shorty after channel dropped.
