Dish claims that it has been in negotiations with WFMJ for months, but would not bend to its demands for a more than 250% increase in rates.
"We are disappointed that WFMJ has chosen to be so unreasonable in their demands, because we know a significant number of Dish customers enjoy getting their local news, sports and weather on the NBC affiliate," said Dish vice president of programming Andrew LeCuyer in a statement. "Essentially, they are taking our customers hostage in these negotiations. We hope WFMJ will soon become more reasonable so we can resume broadcast of this channel on Dish."
