13:35 EDTCLWR, DISH, SMount Kellett sends third letter to board of Clearwire
Mount Kellett Capital sent a letter to the Clearwire (CLWR) Board of Directors outlining issues related to, among other things, Clearwire's relationship with Sprint (S). "We have of course been carefully monitoring recent developments concerning Clearwire and its proposed acquisition by Sprint, including the company's announcement on that it had received an unsolicited proposal from DISH (DISH) to acquire Clearwire at a premium to the consideration offered by Sprint, to acquire certain of Clearwire's excess spectrum and to provide financing to Clearwire. The DISH proposal is further evidence of what has been clear to us for many weeks: The Special Committee, in breach of its fiduciary duties to the minority stockholders of Clearwire, utterly capitulated to Sprint's demand to sell the company at a grossly inadequate price; The Special Committee and the Board of Directors generally, in breach of their fiduciary duties and despite public assurances to the contrary, failed to conduct a vigorous process for the monetization of the company's excess spectrum. In light of these circumstances, it is incumbent on the Special Committee to take its time to thoroughly and thoughtfully evaluate the DISH proposal, including how to address certain obstacles to consummating the proposal asserted by Sprint and to negotiate for all possible improvements to the proposal."

18:47 EDTDISHDISH, Sinclair Broadcast reach agreement, form basis for long-term deal
DISH Network (DISH) announced that it and Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBGI) have reached an agreement in principle "that will form the basis of a long-term retransmission consent agreement" for carriage of Sinclair's local channels in 79 markets nationwide. Restoration of Sinclair signals to DISH's system is underway. "We are grateful for the FCC's work on behalf of consumers to actively broker a productive path forward," said DISH, adding that it is asking the Federal Communications Commission to stay action on DISH's verified amended and restated retransmission complaint and request for preliminary injunctive relief as the long-term agreement is being finalized. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

05:17 EDTDISHDISH says Sinclair Broadcast chooses to initiate channel blackout
Despite reaching an agreement on rates and all other terms for the carriage of the Sinclair local stations, DISH (DISH) said that this afternoon Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBGI) chose to begin the largest local channel blackout in the history of television, blocking DISH customers' access to 129 local channels in 79 markets across 36 states and the District of Columbia, and intentionally harming and exploiting millions of innocent consumers to gain negotiating leverage for carriage of an unrelated cable channel that it hopes to acquire but does not own today. Warren Schlichting, DISH senior vice president of programming, said, "Sinclair rejected our extension offer and has chosen to use innocent consumers as pawns to gain leverage for the economic benefit of Sinclair, while causing substantial harm and disruption to the lives of consumers." DISH and Sinclair had been making steady progress in their recent negotiations, and DISH was hopeful that they would come to a mutual agreement to renew carriage of the Sinclair local stations. In that spirit, DISH offered another short-term contract extension to Sinclair that would include a retroactive "true-up" when new rates were agreed upon, and would preserve the ability of DISH customers to access the Sinclair local stations while our negotiations continued. The "true-up" would ensure that Sinclair was made whole at the new rates for the period of any contract extension. Rather than accept DISH's good faith offer, Sinclair Broadcast Group chose to begin the largest local channel blackout in the history of television, blocking DISH customers' access to 129 local channels in 79 markets, and intentionally harming and exploiting millions of innocent consumers to gain negotiating leverage for carriage of an unrelated cable channel that it hopes to acquire but does not own today.
