    Fee dispute could end Media General's 17 stations re-transmission for Dish Network subscribers

    A fee dispute between Dish Network and Media General could leave viewers of 17 Media General stations in the dark if an agreement between both companies is not met.

    The dispute centers around what’s referred to as a retransmission fee, which is a fee satellite companies pay to broadcast content from network channels and local stations.

    Media General officials believe it is not getting adequate compensation from Dish for their signal due to the high number of viewers who view their channels via a satellite subscription, according to WJHL Vice President and General Manager Dan Cates.
