My Turn: DISH Satellite

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - I would like to take a moment to address our viewers who watch us through the DISH satellite system. On August 1st, there is a chance our signal will be removed from the DISH network system...due to a lack of an agreement between Raycom Media, who owns WLBT, and DISH Satellite.

First of all, I'd like to apologize to these viewers for the inconvenience they may face of not being able to watch us. I'd also like to say thank you for your loyalty. I know many of you are quite passionate about watching our News, Weather and Sports and NBC shows. You have choices. WLBT still has agreements with other satellite and cable carriers. Also WLBT is free over the air if you have an antenna.

If you would like to call DISH network and express your concern about possibly losing WLBT from your channel lineup, you can call them at 1-800-823-4929. You're paying to receive the WLBT signal. If WLBT is removed, you should ask DISH for a credit or rebate.
