| Dish Network nears Media General blackout in 16 markets | By Steve Donohue, FierceCable, September 16, 2013 | | Media General is beginning to warn Dish Network subscribers | that they will lose its 17 TV stations in 16 markets unless | the company agrees to pay increased retransmission-consent | fees by Sept. 30. | | Dish's contract was set to expire on June 30, but the | satellite TV provider and Media General agreed to a 90-day | extension. Media General owns ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC affiliates | in several states, including Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Georgia | and Alabama. | | "Our highly-rated television station is an important asset to | our local community and it is unfortunate that Dish does not | recognize our fair market value," Brad Moses, general manager | of Media General WFLA-TV in Florida, said in a prepared | statement.
