We're talking big advertising dollars. Even if each local affected on DISH only has a small percentage compared to other ways of watching that is potentially a large loss in advertising dollars. That loss can not be recouped once lost. At some point the money lost and projected to be lost has to weighed against what you get at your asking price to be carried. Of course DISH too could lose with subscribers leaving but a small percentage of subscribers to DISH are affected, further you have to insist on watching your game not be a casual fan or be no fan at all of Pro football. Or even yet just watch somewhere else knowing the channel will return. Not having a College game could be more disruptive in some States.
If I have DISH and do have a particular local now blacked out, if I watch the game at a neighbor's house the local gets no credit for me watching - my household is not considered watching. You then have to Multiply all those households for all the affected stations as a loss of income to Meredith as a whole. Ditto if I watch at a bar, or anywhere not subscribed.

Though slightly different every set of eyes is important to the Network and locals for the Fall opening of shows maybe especially new shows.

So I have to conclude knowing DISH is not shy about saying goodbye to some channels or not carrying them, and with the above information Meredith reconfigured their asking price and terms either close enough to or at what DISH would agree to.

Our local Fox affiliate has been off Dish since March 20. Because we couldn't find an NFL contact point other than for their merchandising lines and apps we are sending the NFL a letter the old fashioned way. :)

From what I've read it's a multi year contract so at least we'll have it for a while. Now I hope Sinclair doesn't start something. I've got two stations that are Sinclair (ABC & NBC).

Just FYI. My Hopper is showing the proper guide info but the Dish Anywhere guide still shows "Takedown: Meredith Corp". (but will play the channel properly)

I got so used to watching the channels on my Xfinity Stream app that I didn't even notice the channels were on until just now.

Glad they're back.
