Dish, Gannett continue negotiations on TV fees
Monday - 10/8/2012, 3:15am EDT
McLEAN, Va. (AP) - Dish Network Corp. and Gannett Co. say they've agreed to extend a deadline by several hours as their talks continue in a dispute over fees involving access by more than 2 million Dish subscribers to Gannett's TV stations in 19 cities.
An existing deal was originally set to expire at 2 a.m. EDT Monday involving stations in Denver, Atlanta, Washington and other cities. Representatives of both said in emails to The Associated Press soon after that time that the deadline has been extended. No viewers have been affected.
A Dish spokesman, John Hall, says the deadline extension would allow more time to reach a deal as negotiations continue. Gannett's Jeremy Gaines also confirmed the extension. Both declined to elaborate.
Dish is headquartered in Englewood, Colo., and Gannet in McLean, Va.
