Hawaii News Now restored to DISH Network

By Erika Engle


The eight-day blackout of Hawaii News Now for DISH Network subscribers has been resolved with agreement over retransmission consent terms between Alabama-based Raycom and Colorado-based DISH.

The two parent companies announced they had come to terms on a new agreement for DISH to carry Raycom programming late Friday and did not disclose the terms, but Raycom programming was restored to DISH customers in th 36 previously blacked-out markets.

DISH customers lost Hawaii News Now programming at 7:55 p.m. July 31.

In Hawaii, Raycom owned-or-operated stations include KGMB-TV, KHNL-TV and KFVE-TV.

Meanwhile, the dispute between CBS Corp. and Time Warner Cable continues, blacking out CBS network programming in dozens of Time Warner Cable markets. Programming from CBS-owned cable networks including Showtime, The Movie Channel, Flix, and the Smithsonian Channel also is blacked out in markets including Hawaii.

I hope that it does not mean that there will be a raise in monthly fees. But we all know that that will probably mean a rise in cost. But I still am getting a better deal than when I was with Oceanic. For less I am getting movie channels and DVR. I can only wonder what my Ocean customer friends will be doing as some have asked me about Dish. And some have already switched over after seeing the picture quality first hand. Now that I am getting the channels back it really didn't matter to me as I did a workaround using an HDTV antenna.

How is this "Breaking News"? The 10pm news was broadcast on Friday night and I was able to watch the PGA Championship on Saturday.
