It's been a frustrating couple weeks for DISH network members as their local NBC affiliate, KTTC Channel 10 out of Rochester has been unavailable for contractual reasons. Since late August, Quincy Media was dropped from DISH Network and has been struggling to find common ground with the cable company ever since.

Per their article originally published on August 29, Quincy Media offered DISH five extensions to provide more time to complete a new agreement, but could not agree to DISH's requirements.

DISH has had close to 500 disputes with local TV stations in the past eight years, so this is nothing new for the cable network. If you're sick of all these disputes with cable companies, and how it affects viewing your favorite networks, then it's just another reason to cut the cord as I did. Trust me, you'll be so much happier, and save a ton of money in the process.
