Dish, Raycom Media reach agreement

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Dish Network and Raycom Media Inc. announced late Friday an agreement regarding the continued retransmission of Raycom TV stations in 36 markets. Service to Dish customers in the affected markets was expected to be restored overnight.

Terms of the agreement between Dish and Raycom were not disclosed.

Dish Network customers had lost access to Toledo’s local CBS and Fox affiliates on Aug. 1 after a deadline passed for a new deal between the satellite service provider and the stations’ parent company.

Raycom Media owns WTOL-TV, Channel 11, and operates WUPW-TV, Channel 36, under a shared services agreement. Cable TV and satellite TV companies pay stations a fee to broadcast their signals.

Raycom, based in Montgomery, Ala., had pulled its channels from Dish in 35 other markets, including Cleveland and Cincinnati.
