If you are a subscriber of Dish you may be at risk of losing WLBT. As you may know, our station has to reach agreements wi the cable and satellite companies that bring our signal to your home.

Most of the time these negotiations are handled quickly and behind the scenes with no interruption to your service. In fact, you rarely are aware of those negotiations, which in our view is how it should be.

Unfortunately, to date, we have been unable to reach an agreement. You could lose our station and the news, weather, and sports that you and your family rely on. That also means you could miss the Today Show, America’s Got Talent, NASCAR and the Summer Olympics from Rio.

Here at WLBT we deeply value our relationship with more than 60 years, serving the community, supporting local charities, highlighting the issues and politics that affect us each day.

We hope that we are able to reach a fair agreement with Dish by 5 p.m. Thursday, August 4th that will keep WLBT on their system here in Central Mississippi and we promise to do all that we can to make that happen. 

In the meantime, we will keep you updated. And please remember you always have choices: we are free over the air and available through other providers in our community.

We are also available via our news and weather apps, mobile site and website for live streaming of our newscasts.
