With parent company TV Corp. reaching a retransmission agreement for its 27 television stations across 17 markets with DISH Network yesterday, the signals of West Michigan NBC affiliate WOOD-TV Ch. 8 and ABC affiliate WOTV Ch. 41 have been restored on the DISH system.
Terms of the new agreement were not released- the dispute over money between LIN and DISH affected viewers for 8 days with each party blaming the other for the disruption to viewers.
A statement on WOOD-TVs web site reads: "Attention DISH subscribers: We are pleased to inform you that we have reached a contract with DISH Network. We appreciate your tremendous support throughout these negotiations. This fair resolution ensures that we can continue to provide top quality news, sports, entertainment and other local programming that is most important to you. Thank you for supporting LOCAL television."
