So, was the end in sight or was it a glitch? Turned out to be a glitch.


On a personal side note, RIP J.K. Metzker.

Sadly, here are some links:

From KTVN, click here for video.

From KOLO, click here for video (story to follow short ad).

From KRNV, click here for text article. In this article, KRNV is reporting that the suspect was released today on surprisingly only $10,000 bail. :mad:

KTVN Reno is reporting they are back on the air with Dish as of today. Haven't seen any details reported but it looks like things were worked out.

KFVS is running the same kind of beggar crawl about a local cable company that's in an area that can't reliably get the signal OTA. Some can get it, others can't. This is a small utility operated cable company that doesn't have a lot of cash to deal with.

Some area residents can get a signal from another market with a decent OTA antenna, but not all.



The Feds really need to stop this extortion.

HD, SchmacHD!! Just be glad you've got a picture at all.

Yes, DISH Network and Sarkes Tarzian have reached an agreement.

Reno, NV's CBS, and Chattanooga, TN's NBC will be back on shortly, if not already.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we worked to reach a fair agreement to keep your channels

Glad to see that's been resolved. Sure took awhile. I'd like to have been an observer in the corner when the agreement was reached as these are tough negotiations for both sides.

What about a small refund since the channel was MIA for nearly two months?

A deal is always reached on disputes like this with local stations. They both sides need each other.
AN OLD GEEZER WHO REMEMBERS THE DUMONT TELEVISION NETWORK AND IT'S TOP RATED "CAPTAIN VIDEO AND HIS VIDEO RANGERS", TV NEWS ANCHORMEN WEARING HATS DURING THE NEWSCAST, ONLY 180 SECONDS OF COMMERICALS EACH HALF HOUR, 3 STATIONS ON THE AIR WITH THEIR TEST PATTERNS AIRED FROM 2 TO 3PM, PROGRAMMING FROM 3PM TO 11:30 AND SIGNING OFF AT 11:30PM. HOW COULD I FORGET THE SINGLE FRAME VERTICAL ROLL WHEN THE STATIONS SWITCHED FROM NETWORK TO LOCAL OR LOCAL TO NETWORK AND THE TIME TONE ON THE HOUR.

Ok, you get about 7 channels for what would be $5.99 for locals for non qualifying packages. So that would be about $1.70 for the two months. Go for it.

KTVN keeps running a scroll across their shows saying Dish is refusing to pay "pennies a day" for customers to see their "Great CBS programing and News." The scrolls seem much nastier than those that Fox/NewsCorp was running on FOX channels directed at DirecTV.


As I said before i don't watch local TV stations much. For the people in Reno who do I hope they get a deal soon.

Merry Christmas to all!

Enjoying AT 250 HBO,

You're missing the much bigger picture. Now ask yourself, who is suspiciously missing from answering my repeatedly asked easy question, and why?

So you want about $1.70 but only if someone contacts you. You contacting someone is out of the question......Had you been reasonable, I can tell you first hand Dish does give you more than the monetary value if you just had called and asked. (It may depend on your account also) In my case I accepted a PPV. My Father in-Law accepted three months of one of the Movie channels. (I think Cinemax but don't remember)
