Dish Network (DISH) and Gannett (GCI) extend their deadline for negotiations over Dish's "Hopper" ad-skipping technology by several hours after what was to be a midnight expiration. If the companies can't come to an agreement - GCI wants a 300% increase in broadcast fees while DISH counters with 200% - Dish subscribers in 19 cities would lose access to various big-three network affiliates that Gannett owns.
