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.
