    Here's one deal that got made without a dispute.

    Cablevision, CBS Sign Content Pact

    Cablevision Systems and CBS said they have agreed to a broad-based, multi-year content carriage agreement that covers retransmission consent for CBS-owned stations, continued carriage of Showtime, CBS Sports Network and Smithsonian Channel and makes Cablevision the first pay-TV provider to announce plans to distribute CBS All Access and Showtime streaming services to broadband (Optimum Online) customers.

    From Everett Will on Facebook:

    WJLA and the other Sinclair stations have been pulled off Dish Network. The short term extension expired at 5 pm EDT.

    NASDAQ.com has an article on its website dealing with the now-collapsed negotiations. This is not going to be pretty.

    Around here in Western WA, KOMO-TV is off dish for the second time in just over 5 years, and the last time out (Fisher Broadcasting owned the station then) they were off dish for over 5 months. On the other hand, co-owned sister station KUNS-TV (Univision) is still on dish for now.

    So two of the four Sinclair stations in the Mobile, AL DMA have been pulled from Dish.
    NBC, WPMI 15, and Indie WJTC 44 are still on a dish.
    ABC, WEAR 3, and My, WFGX 35, are pulled.

    Please tell me what on earth anti-trust concerns about theaters from 1948 have to do with television in 2015, because I have no idea what point you're trying to make here.

    Meanwhile in Wisconsin, this affects Fox in Green Bay and Madison (not so fun come the start of the Packer season), and CW/MyNet in Milwaukee (nothing really missed as CW streams their shows and most of their syndicated product is bad, while MyNet could take a massive hit from this). For SBG's Fox, CBS and NBC stations settling up before the NFL season is crucial, while they have a bit of leeway with their ABC and CW stations. The lousy negotiators at Dish though are more to blame here; how is it Charter's only carriage issues are usually from little watched cable channels, while Dish could easily pull off even Free Speech TV for looking at them funny?

    KIMA-TV (CBS) and DT-2 (CW) are gone from Dish as well. Yuck. Better get this negotiation settled with before the NFL season starts, or there will be a lot of pi$$ed off fans, both AFC and NFC.

    If Sinclair had pulled WPMI NBC 15 off the air I wouldn't be worried. If they keep WEAR ABC 3 off the air it will impact SEC football in a week.
    Why did Sinclair only pull some stations?

    Time to hook up the OTA tuner dongle that plugs into my Hopper.

    The Sinclair-Dish dispute is over:

    Dish, Sinclair Reach Retrans Deal

    About a day after its 129 broadcast stations went dark and mere hours after Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler called for an emergency meeting to reach an end to their dispute, Dish Network and Sinclair Broadcast Group said they have reached an agreement and that restoration of the Sinclair signals to Dish subscribers is underway.

    In a statement, Dish and Sinclair said they have agreed to a short-term extension on their existing retrans agreement as they finalize negotiations. The parties say they have reached an agreement in principal for the stations in 79 markets across the country.

    Good! NFL season is around the corner and hopefully Sinclair and Dish won't butt heads for a long time.
