Bonten Media Stations Warn Viewers of Possible DISH Network Blackout

bonten media group logoBonten Media Group and DISH Network are facing a Saturday deadline to negotiate a new carriage agreement before Bonten’s 16 stations go dark on DISH.

On some Bonten stations, like KECI and KCFW in Missoula, Mont., viewers are being warned about the possibility of a service interruption. “We are simply advising customers that this could happen so they’re not surprised or caught unprepared if they want to prepare,” Richard Reingold, vice president and general manager of Bonten’s Montana stations, told the Missoulian.

The current carriage agreement expires December 8. Bonten Media says “good faith negotiations” are continuing.
