    Who says they want more? They might want the same or even be willing to settle for less. But Dish/AT&T might want them pay them even less than that. Disputes don't always have to be about how much more money the network wants, though they usually are.

    They are also picking up the 35 Bulls games, 55 White Sox Games and 20ish Blackhawks games that WGN used to have, so now NBC Sports Chicago will have more live professional games than ever even with the loss of the Cubs.

    The Blackhawks should teamed up with the cubs on the new channel.

    Now, WHP TV (Harrisburg) is now also running a scroll that ATT/DirecTV may drop in on 27 Sept due to a carriage dispute. Sinclair is the owner.

    I saw a crawl about AT&T maybe dropping the channel on 9/27. I am pretty sure it was on ESPN, but it is possible it was my local Sinclair (CBS) station. Thought it was funny since I don't have Directv at home, I have Mediacom :D

    ESPN's crawl (when active) was specific to AT&T/DIRECTV's feeds. Other companies got a clean, nag free edition of the programming. It was probably your local CBS. I have a Sinclair local that I can check later.

    My local CBS/Fox Affliliate (WSBT 22 South Bend) has the following story on their website:
    Don't lose WSBT 22 and FOX Michiana on Direct TV and U-Verse
