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.
