retransmission consent agreement expires at 12:01 a.m. shake head

Here we go again, another retransmission consent contract dispute between Dish Network and a broadcaster. A blackout could affect Dish customers in 45 cities where Sinclair owns or provides services to stations — including affiliates of Fox (20 stations), MyTV (18), ABC (11), CW (14), CBS (9), NBC (1) and Azteca (1).

-Sinclair says that although it is still negotiating with Dish, there’s “significant doubt” as to whether they can reach an agreement.

Heres a link that asks for your zip and lets you know what channels will be affected for you. It's also full of Dish corporate "were the good guys junk."


also..AMC Networks, including AMC, WE tv, IFC and Sundance Channel, has been off the air since July 1 in a similar dispute with Dish.

I'm going to wait and see then hit up the call centers for some love and maybe shop around. I'm not in the mood to mess with the antenna thing again, and I
m going to lose FOX and CW myself.. geesh.

Does anyone know if this would void my contract?
