Well at least I got to see Craig Ferguson. It'll be back within the week, and big names like CBS have their shows online for free a few days after they air on TV anyway.

I don't know why everyone has to go through this every time one of Raycom Media's contracts runs out.

Not on cable either.They've said for a month it would effect dish users only.Same as Jonesboro Ark, Jonesboro is on cable with their programs,just not on dish network like both raycom stations said. Looks like kfvs lied.

According to Dish, Raycom was wanting too much $ for Dish to carry their programming. I've grown tired of KFVS bashing dish over the last couple weeks and not telling their viewers the whole story. We have Dish and OTA antenna. I can still get KFVS, but I WILL NOT be watching KFVS just because of their behavior. KFVS says "You have choices", that part I agree with, my choice will be channel 3 or 6 from now on for my local news.

Dish is stating that "Raycom is demanding unreasonable rates to carry this channel". Sounds like Raycom needs to get with the program so we as viewers are not punished.

Dish has the money. KFVS provides quality news broadcasting and Dish has millions of dollars to pay it. Sick it up dish and pay all your money to us.

at first i was mad at dish and was gonna switch. I researched it and found out raycom wants four times the amount they got for their last contract. Way more than their competitor channels. i decided to stay with dish cuz its cheaper than other providers and they are standing their ground with raycom so they can keep their packages resonably priced. Thank u dish network! Raycom channels are free with an antenna anyways.

If you can't live without channel 12....go to Walmart and buy a $10 antenna and hook it up to your DVR box. It will pull it in just fine until Raycom can come down to earth on their asking price.

Raycom wants to renew the contract with Dish and wants three time more than what dish was paying and three times more than what Dish is paying any other local television station. I applaud dish for standing pat and trying to keep there cost and mine as low as possible KFVS can kiss my a** I'll stay with dish because it's the best deal going. Shame on greedy KFVS for not telling the whole story. The station manager just lost all credibility for lying and not telling the whole truthful story.. What a hack!!!!

Ive been on phone w/kfvs, Down to Earth Sat, Dish Net Corp office, Raycom Corp, and no one seems to know what is up. Dish corp knocked 5.0 off my bill (135.00) a month and gave me free movie channels for 3 months...That dont solve the problem. Think about it.I'm upset to have prepaid a bill and can't recieve what I paid for in advance, Because they can't reach an agreement over FREE airtime...
Emailed CBS n told em to get Donald Trump & Connie Chungs' husband to fix it!
someone needs to build a DOME and sit inside with a big sign "LET ME AND CHANNEL 12/CBS" OUT OF THE dome!
SIT RIGHT ON BROADWAY...MAYBE BRING YOUR OWN ANTENNA, HA!

I have a question, if we dont have to pay anything to watch KFVS 12 ON REGULAR NON DISH TV because they make their money by selling and airing tv commercials why wouldnt they allow their channel to be carried for free or a very nominal fee with dish, it doesnt cost kfvs any more to have more viewers but an expanded audience could very possibly allow them to charge more for their commercials. Am I missing something here?

Relax. Its not going to be forever. Betcha its settled within the week. No need to get another provider. We can all stand not to have cbs for just a bit. There will be a settlement, and I bet it will be soon.

On another note I find it humorous that dish states on its little message when u go to channel 12 " raycom has blocked you to access this channel". No they didnt. Who took it off the air? Dish. It was dishes decision to block it. They hit the button. Dont tell me raycom did it. Thats insulting my intelligence.

Good thoughts. Think u would probably have to be in the loop to know exactly whats going on. Every side has their story. Again just be patient. I bet its solved within the week and ull have it back

And something for us all to remember. These are what I heard someone call "white people problems". Remember those people in other countries that would LOVE to even have a tv. Yet a channel..yet 300 channels. They worry about eating...we worry about not getting the 6 oclock news.
GOOD RIDDANCE

Nobody needs weather and day old sports scores. I don't need bimbettes telling me not to buy hair extensions off late night tv.

I need someone who is a journalist! Who can pursue corrupt politicians, excessive and unfair taxation, crooked merchants and dangerous corporations.

KFVS is chicken shlt tv and part of the mainstream chicken shlt media!
