    Default Dish Network to drop KUSA and KTVD Sunday night - UPDATE: didn't happen

    There’s a whole lotta posturing going on as Colorado-based Dish Network, the country’s No. 2 satellite network, and Gannett, the owner of KUSA-KTVD locally, continue the fight over ad skipping, carriage fees, money, and, mostly, money.

    Dish says Gannett has threatened to stop broadcasting on the satellite network, blocking its signals in 19 cities including Denver if Dish doesn’t drop its ad-skipping feature or pay massive penalties. “Gannett Broadcasting demands huge price increase, mandates commercial-watching,” is the way Dish’s breathless press release put it.

    Gannett says the dispute is over fees, not Hopper, the Dish ad-skipping dvr technology. A Gannett source says the company never asked Dish to disable Hopper.

    The negotiating deadline for the companies is 11:59 p.m. Sunday.

    I saw this morning that an agreement has been reached between Gannett and Dish Network with terms kept private. So Gannett's station will continued to be carried by Dish Network.

    I just checked 9news website and their old story is up there saying it could be pulled and hasn't been updated since last week. And the last sentence says: "We will update you with any new information as we get it."
    Yep, sure.
