(Toledo News Now) -

Once again, I'd like to talk directly to viewers who watch us through Dish Network. 

There is a very good chance that WTOL will be taken off the Dish system July 31 at midnight.     

For the last several months, our parent company, Raycom Media, has been negotiating in good faith with Dish, but unfortunately, this large satellite company doesn't seem to have the same sense of urgency and a new agreement has not been reached.  

We are only asking Dish to pay what other local providers - both cable and satellite - are already paying.  You are paying 100 percent of your Dish TV bill each month, and you should receive 100 percent of the channels.  If our signal is disrupted, you should consider asking for a rebate from Dish.

You can still get WTOL free over-the-air and see our news streamed on ToledoNewsNow.com.

If you want to see WTOL remain on Dish Network, please call 1-888-926-5457 and let them know. 

I'd also like to apologize to you for any inconvenience this may cause, and I want to thank you for your loyalty to WTOL.

Again, this message only applies to Dish Network customers. Thank you.
