KSL TV Dropped From Dish Network As Negotiations Continue

Dish Network Channels List

Channels Blackout

Even after many months of negotiations on contract, Dish Network and KSL TV have failed to come to an agreement, and the satellite TV provider has removed KSL TV from the Dish Network channels list. It is reported that KSL TV will remain in negotiations with Dish Network until a final decision is made on the carriage deals.

“We have offered the same fair market rates that DISH already pays other local stations in the Salt Lake market and DISH has refused our repeated offers. Our goal was to reach an agreement and we worked diligently to do so before a blackout occurred. We are still hopeful we will reach an agreement soon,” said Tayna Vea, who is the vice president and general manager of KSL 5 TV.

Reports say that KSL TV was removed from the Dish Network channels list on Thursday night, and users are no longer able to watch any of their favorite KSL TV programming on channels including NBC Prime, KSL TV News, NFL Football, and Studio 5. However, Dish users who wish to watch KSL TV programming will be able to receive the signal over the air using an antenna. KSL TV officials also said that Dish Network users could move their subscription to other service providers like DirecTV or Comcast to get the channels.

The signal of KSL TV is retransmitted by about thirty different cable and satellite systems. KSL TV is paid a retransmission fee by all of the providers who are carrying their broadcast signal. The fee for retransmission is decided through contract negotiations.

Contract Negotiation Continues

As per the KSL TV representatives, they have offered Dish Network the same rates that Dish pays to other local broadcast stations in Salt Lake. However, Dish Network officials repeatedly declined their offer. It is confirmed that the channel will remain dark until Dish Network and KSL TV reach an agreement on carriage fee.

“We will continue to negotiate with DISH-TV and remain committed to serving our viewers and this community,” Vea said. KSL TV asked their viewers to call Dish Network to let them know that they want them to keep KSL on the Dish Network channels list.

It is also reported that Dish Network could blackout CBS soon as well. In a Facebook post, KWTV warned Dish Network users that they could lose CBS programming from Dec 31 midnight. It is rumored that News 9 is currently negotiating with Dish Network to continue providing the programming.

Last week, Dish Media Sales announced that it would be letting out addressable advertising inventory on eight Latino networks. These are all part of the standard Dish pay-TV service. The company’s addressable advertising the option for advertisers to orient their message for specific households through the use of anonymized secondary demographic data.

Vice president of Dish Media Sales Adam Gaynor said in a statement, “We’re offering brands the opportunity to have a meaningful, in-language conversation with the largest Latino bilingual customer base in pay-TV”. He also added that relevant messages would be delivered to improve viewing experience for customers as well as the bottom line for advertisers.

At present, advertisers send targeted ads to households after assessing data such as age, location, and other characteristics. The ads delivered to the DVR work the same way as a postcard ad is sent to a mailbox. Ads sent in this way would play during scheduled commercial breaks between live and recorded content, if the household matches the desired audience the advertiser is targeting.

Dish is currently the bilingual market leader in programming packages for English and Spanish programming. Also, data shows that Hispanic households have 17% more chance to subscribe to satellite TV than the average U.S. household. With a growing consumer group in the Latino community, Dish Network has gained 2 million viewers in the past three months. This means that the service provider has a good avenue to target with consumers in Spanish.

Latino buying power has been forecasted to reach $1.7 trillion in 2019, according to the Selig Center for Economic Growth. Dish Media Sales brought in household addressable ads in 2012, and this currently gets to over 8 million homes around the country. Expanding the inventory has brought up advertising about 100 networks. Following are the eight Latino networks which are part of the expansion:
