Despite lengthy discussions over the past two months, DISH Network and KXLY-TV have been unable to reach an agreement to carry the local ABC affiliate on the paid satellite service. The current agreement ended March 16, 2012 at 10:59 p.m. “We have offered DISH Network a fair agreement to continue to carry KXLY-TV to its subscribers,” said Teddie Gibbon, vice president and general manager of KXLY-TV. “DISH is unwilling to agree to virtually the same terms we have negotiated with nearly all of its competitors in the last few months.” KXLY-TV knows DISH Network can reach a deal without raising its customers’ bills because they are already charging them for providing this service. DISH charges its customers $5.99 a month to access local channels. Full release here.
