Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBGI -1.2%) says negotiations with Buckeye Cable on a new retransmission consent contract have stalled.

Buckeye has taken a very hard line on the carriage fee issue including taking the step of pulling NBC off the air for some viewers in Ohio and Michigan. The blackout meant affected viewers missed recent programming such as the Olympics coverage, The Voice, and Saturday Night Live.
