Editorial: DISH negotiations

If you are a subscriber of DISH Network you are at risk of losing WALB on the DISH system.

This unfortunate situation is the result of Dish's refusal to reach a fair agreement with us.

If we are unable to reach an agreement by today at 6pm you will lose our station and the news, weather, and sports that you and your family rely on.

You will also miss the Olympics and America's got Talent.

We hope that we are able to reach a fair agreement with DISH that will keep WALB on their system.

We promise to do all that we can to make that happen.

In the meantime, we will keep you updated. And please remember you always have choices: we are free over the air and available through other providers in our community.

We are also available via our news and weather apps, mobile site and website for live streaming of our newscasts.

Again, deadline for us to reach an agreement with DISH is today 6pm.
