Dish Network, KHQ TV management agree on retransmission contract

KHQ TV station management and Dish Network have signed a new deal that ends the possible blackout of Sunday's Super Bowl broadcast for satellite subscribers.

The previous contract ended at midnight last night, with the two sides at odds until Tuesday afternoon.

The two sides agreed sometime before 10 p.m. 

"The good news is that our signal will remain on the Dish Network and no viewers will miss the Super Bowl," said Patricia McRea, KHQ General Manager. KHQ is owned and operated by Cowles California Media Co., which is a subsidiary of Cowles Co.

Cowles Co. owns and operates The Spokesman-Review and Spokesman.com.

McRea said details of the new contract are confidential. The contract covers among other things the retransmission fee Dish pays to the company for carrying its signal to viewers in the large Spokane TV market, which stretches into Idaho, southeast Washington and central Washington.
