We regret to inform DISH subscribers that, despite recent efforts to reach agreement on the outstanding terms of dispute, we have been unable to resolve the impasse with DISH Network.

While both parties have offered concessions and compromise language throughout the negotiation process, there has been no substantive movement on the issues that led to the impasse in the first place – all of which were and are proposed by DISH as changes to the prior agreement.

Although we have agreed to many of DISH’s revisions, and while we have offered compromise on the primary issues of dispute, we have not been able settle these issues. Therefore WABI TV5 (CBS) and WABI DT2 (CW) will remain unavailable via DISH satellite service for the foreseeable future.
