It could have been verified with the PBS listing on Titan TV. But, too late now.

While getting ready to capture the feed of Tuesday's Mega Weapons, I've noticed that PBS Kids is no longer in test mode. It was still in test mode last week Wednesday.

Another re-transmission dispute, this time between Gray TV, the owner of 99 stations nationwide, including WMTV ch. 15 and Dish Network. The info on WMTV's site and their scrolling alert mimic Gray's recent press release, which is easily found with a web search. Gray's message seems somewhat disingenuous to me, as Dish normally won't kick stations off on their own. It's harder to find Dish's response, but there is a general one. I don't understand why they couldn't at least agree to an extension unless Gray wants the extension to include more money than Dish is paying now.

This is one article that outlines Gray's press release and Dish's response from Roanoke, VA.

I'm a Dish subscriber but can get WMTV OTA clearly, so the only impact on me would be losing the program info from Dish's channel guide if they drop them. But I tire of these disagreements. Typically, the broadcast channel owners ask for more money than they really deserve and the cable or satellite provider will only offer perhaps a slight more than the last agreement, which seems fair to me. The broadcast channel owners will always say their programming is worth a lot more money than it really is.

I suggest Dish subscribers who get WMTV that read this thread contact WMTV directly and ask them to tell their owners to negotiate in good faith and not expect to get loads more money than they did before and more than other similar local broadcast station owners already get from Dish.
