Saw this on WUCW, channel 23 here in the Twin Cities:

"*Attention Dish Network Subscribers:* As of 6:00 pm EST on Wednesday August 15, we have not reached an agreement with Dish Network on a new agreement. If no such agreement is reached or if we don't enter into a short-term extension of our existing agreement, beginning August 16th, this station will no longer be carried by the Dish Network."

First I've heard of it. There are a couple links:


"We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm."

I'll admit I have watched Nikita, but I would not miss WUCW if Dish dropped it.

I get it in HD from 70 miles away, with no problems, on my indoor 4-bay coat-hanger OTA antenna.
