Media General warns Dish Network customers of potential blackout

Media General (MEG +3%) warns customers of Dish Network (DISH +0.8%) that they will lose access to 17 stations in 16 different markets unless Dish works out a new contract for retransmission fees.

A contract extension between the two firms expires on September 30.

Analysts have begun to think Dish's Charlie Ergen is ready to play hardball with broadcasters. (Related: Dish vs. Disney)
