    Don’t strain your arms, patting yourselves on the back. What a crock! “The terms of the agreement were not disclosed” – as if we weren’t going to get an increase anyway. Dish and the local channels play this game every year or two. This year it was channel 6. Next year it’ll be channel 4. I’ve already moved elsewhere for my local news, no need for fox6 anymore.

    Wonder how much bills will be raised this time.

    These outages combined with the bill increases are probably the number one reason my generation doesn’t pay for traditional TV anymore. You guys are staying yourselves over.

    You guys are just like the government. Can’t anyone reach an agreement without shutting things down? You did a disservice to your customers and even worse, your advertisers. I did miss your local news and the people who provide the local programming. Guess what though? I found other local programming that I now enjoy. Your loss.
