The DISH Network is no longer carrying WBAY-TV 2's signal. Despite an extension Thursday, an agreement on a new contract could not be reached. We will continue to make every reasonable effort to reach an agreement. WBAY-TV 2 will keep you updated.

Dear DISH Subscriber:

DISH's contract with WBAY-TV 2 expired on December 10, 2008.

For the past several months our company has attempted to reach a new agreement with DISH. Unfortunately DISH has elected not to accept our proposal.

We know that it is important to keep you informed, and therefore, we want you to know the FACTS:

• DISH charges you a fee for WBAY-TV 2. We believe DISH should be willing to pay a small, but fair, portion of the fees you pay to DISH for the program content we provide to you.

• The fair compensation that we are asking for as part of our contract with DISH is about a penny per day per subscriber. We believe that a penny per day per subscriber is a reasonable demand for our award-winning news, sports, and entertainment programming. It is considerably less than the amount paid by DISH to less popular satellite/cable networks.

• DISH will likely contend that the increase we are asking in its fee is unreasonable. It is not. We have provided DISH with our signal at a very modest rate compared to what DISH pays other program services that are less popular.

• We are trying to prevent DISH from discriminating against our station.

• If you want DISH to continue to provide WBAY-TV 2, please call DISH and let them know.

• We will continue to work diligently in the hope that DISH will complete an agreement for carriage of WBAY-TV 2.

We regret the inconvenience that DISH may cause you.

Our programs include your favorite local news, weather, sports, and entertainment programs including Action 2 News This Morning; Good Morning America; Action 2 News at Noon, 4, 5, 6, and 10; Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?; Dr. Phil; Insider; Dancing with the Stars; Grey's Anatomy; Desperate Housewives; the Capital One Bowl and the Rose Bowl.

You may continue to watch the great programs on WBAY-TV 2 by alternative means. Your choices include:

• Free over-the-air reception directly from the station
• DIRECTV
• The local cable system
• In some areas, the local telephone company

We will keep you fully informed of the status.

Your title is incorrect. Dish is willing to carry the channel, but because there is not contract with WBAY they aren't allowed to broadcast the channel.
Now, did we really need another thread when there are like 12 already open???
