Raycom committed to resolve issue with Dish

Posted: Updated:
BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

WLOX is committed to serving South Mississippi with the very best local news and weather, great ABC and CBS programming and local community services. We also serve the local business community, providing a critical advertising platform for reaching their customers.

As you know, in order to be brought into the homes of our viewers, we need to reach agreements with the cable and satellite companies that serve our market. We are proud of the fact that we have agreements in place with every distributor in our area. Unfortunately we have been unable to reach an agreement with DISH Network.

For several months, WLOX has been working with DISH to resolve this issue, so that DISH may continue to lawfully provide our signal to their viewers. To date we have been unable to reach an Agreement.

As a result of not having an agreement in place, WLOX is currently not available to its customers.

We understand this is frustrating for DISH customers and we share their frustration. We are committed to doing everything we can to resolve this issue with DISH.

In the meantime, we are undertaking an effort to inform customers of the situation using our website, PSAs on radio and in the local papers, as well as social media to make sure viewers know that they have choices – WLOX is available on all the other TV providers in our area and we're always available for free over the air.

We will keep you updated as the situation evolves.
