WDAM Viewpoint- DISH Network Disruption

Posted: Updated:

I would like to take a moment to address our viewers who watch us through the DISH Network system.  Barring a last minute break through in the DISH and Raycom negotiations as of midnight Wednesday, our NBC and ABC signals will be removed by DISH from their network.  We regret this and apologize for the inconvenience any DISH viewers may face as a result of DISH refusing to go along with us in working together to iron out a settlement.  We will continue to try to negotiate and reason with them and hopefully they will see fit to return WDAM NBC and ABC to their channel lineup.

Remember-- you still have choices.  WDAM can be seen on other carriers and is free over the air.  If you wish to call DISH and express your displeasure for losing two of your major channels you can call them at 1-800-823-4929.  They may try to place the responsibility on Raycom and WDAM.  But it takes two to negotiate in good faith. 

We hope you will bear with us and that we will soon return to the dish line up.  I'm Jim Cameron, and you can rest assured that it is our utmost desire to serve all the viewers in our viewing area.
