WMUR is back in the DISH Network

MANCHESTER &#-; WMUR-TV returned to the DISH Network lineup on Wednesday, after the DISH and Hearst corporations reached an agreement that allowed the satellite network to resume carrying Hearst-owned stations.The agreement applied to 25 media markets, including Boston; Burlington, Vt.; and Portland-Auburn, Maine.In a brief email Wednesday afternoon, DISH Network said WMUR-TV is now available to its viewers. It said terms of the agreement with Hearst were not disclosed.On Tuesday, WMUR-TV announced an impasse between DISH and Hearst. WMUR said it had not blacked out its station, and its parent company had a long history of reaching carriage agreements with cable companies and other distributors.WMUR General Manager Jeff Bartlett said the issue wasn&#';t one of rates, but he said DISH was seeking non-specified “other terms” that no other cable or satellite company has asked for.As of last December, DISH counted approximately 14 million satellite TV customers nationwide.
