Sometime back NWCN (NW Cable News) dropped Dish, as they demanded the same amount for NWCN, KGW, KREM, KING, in each market. Dish refused, as good as NWCN is, they do repeat their news too much. Now, Tegna (NWCN, KING, KGW, KREM, etc) claims NWCN is unneeded as all of the stations stream their news. I guess few want to pay inflated fees to carry the channel. Streaming is the future. This is probably the first casualty of many with streaming now.
