What happens if broadcast fee and negotiations fail?

Sometimes during negotiations, broadcast retransmission negotiations, local cable providers can’t come to an agreement with corporate broadcasters and/or networks. This happens when the broadcasters and/or networks are looking to maximize their income by asking for increased rates from local cable providers. 

When disputes occur, popular networks or local channels are taken off the air to negotiate deals in their favor. In other words: channel blackouts. Channel blackouts can happen anywhere with any provider.

Rest assured, TDS does everything in its power to negotiate fair deals for our customers. We work hard to make content agreements that are in the best interest of your pocketbook, while also delivering you a great product.
