WBRZ reaches deal with DISH
BATON ROUGE - WBRZ reached an agreement with DISH this week to keep our signal broadcast to local viewers on their network.
The contract for carrying the signal ran out on June 30. WBRZ-TV gave DISH multiple extensions to continue negotiations, the last of which was to expire Aug. 21.
Recently some DISH subscribers also said they could not receive a clear WBRZ signal. After investigating an engineer discovered that birds roosting on DISH's receiving equipment were blocking the signal sent by WBRZ. DISH has been working to correct that to ensure they continue to receive WBRZ's signal clearly.
