DISH Network subscribers will lose programming from Media General-owned NBC and CW affiliate WCBD-TV Channel 2 if a new contract agreement is not reached by midnight today.
If no contract is reached, DISH could blackout NBC shows. Subscribers could still watch the Peacock Network via antenna or by switching to an alternative pay-TV service provider, WCBD said.
WCSC-TV Channel 5, the local CBS affiliate, went through a similar fee dispute with DISH in July without resolving it before the Aug. 1 deadline. They later came to an undisclosed agreement.
