Update: CBS to stream Alabama-Tennessee game as Media General-DISH Network dispute continues
 
Saturday’s Alabama-Tennessee matchup might not pack the wallop of rivalry games past, but there remains plenty of off-field drama for some fans.
 
Due to an unresolved contract dispute, DISH Network subscribers in eight markets – including WKRG in Mobile and WJHL in Tennessee’s Tri-Cities area that includes Kingsport, Johnson City, and Bristol – will not find the game among CBS’ regularly scheduled programming because the stations are currently unavailable.
 
For the second consecutive week, however, Media General has negotiated alternative broadcast options for affected CBS viewers in danger of missing Saturday’s 2:30 p.m. kickoff, pitting the unranked Volunteers against the No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide.

The only news is the streams will be offered on the stations' websites. CBS has streamed SEC football throughout the season.

Bump!

 

So where does all of this now stand?  I haven't heard an update for weeks.  Again, it would nice and barely an issue (for me) if the guide still contained information for OTA...

Scott,

I understand you’re upset. I don’t have any additional information for about the status of our negotiations with Media General, who owns your local station. DISH will update www.dishvaluepledge.com with more information as it becomes available.

Thanks

Hey - check your EPG - I have my Media General station (WNCN NBC17) in Raleigh back.

 

However - the mapdown on my 311 receiver is not working yet - maybe a reboot / check dish will fix it

You CAN put antennas on your owned and/or controlled property...

I saw that... back in HD and EPG partially there... probably will not be fully back until after tonight's off-cycle...  I am seeing some news around the internet now too saying a deal was reached.

 

Funny how it has only been a few days since the merger of Media General and Young (I think it was Young) and now we have an agreement and channels back... just like Dish had been saying all along, that Media General was playing unnecessary hardball knowing the people in charge at Media General were not going to be in charge after the merger completed this week.

I confirm that Media General station WJTV CBS in Jackson, MS is back on the air at 012-00.  Some program details in the guide are missing, but I have CBS back again.  Awesome! 

 

Now if Dish Network will add 12.2 CW in 720P to the locals.  They haven't dropped 34 yet, which flipped to Trinity last May.  My theory is that they have been holding that spot to use for CW.  Time will tell.

DISH has an agreement with Young ... they wanted Media General to extend their agreement until Young's agreement took effect but Media General wanted to play rough. With the merger complete the channels are now Young channels and can be carried under Young's agreement with DISH.

Until the next dispute ...

Watch your local news personalities disappear. Ten years ago when Young Broadcasting fired  most of the newscasters lost their jobs. KRON lost NBC affiliation. Now KRON has lots of infomercials.
