    For the most part other than by blacking out many of their 'sidecar stations' they seem to be acting in good faith and at least for now they are trying to avoid an actual blackout. I am concerned when this gets around to Dish Network as they are tougher on the sports networks being bundled in than say, DirecTV.

    Did they reach a new deal? The channel with DTV telling me about the dispute was removed, was 6-9(CBS)

    I think the odds are good they got it done. I checked directvpromise.com yesterday and it still had language on the Sinclair dispute (ran a west Michigan zip code where they have a station). Today it says there is no dispute in the area.

    If they did reach a deal that is likely a good sign for the future for Fox Sports Regional Nets as well as the possibility of the Cubs new network "Marquee".

    I just got an email back from Sinclair Corporate HQ. from Suzanne Schauman and I quote: Thank you for your email. "We are still broadcasting while negotiating." So decide and discuss. I have nothing in this because I'm a Dish customer but I thought I'd let you all know.:glasses
