ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — Dish Network has dropped all Meredith owned television stations, which includes, KMOV Channel 4.

Dish reports it failed to reach and agreement with the Meredith stations. That means Channel 4 will not be accessible if you have DISH. However, it is still available from other cable and satellite providers.

“Meredith has been trying for months to get DISH Network to negotiate seriously and reaching a deal is our top priority,” said Patrick McCreery, President, Meredith Local Media Group. “We know the vital local news, emergency information, and top-rated sports and entertainment programming we provide are important to DISH’s customers, and we hope DISH will make it a priority to reach a deal too. Meredith stands ready, willing and able to reach a fair deal with DISH. Meredith has successfully completed hundreds of carriage agreements, and there is still time for DISH to reach a deal too.”

Following the announcement, the Channel 4 news station is urging its viewers to contact Dish Network. "We encourage DISH subscribers to reach out to DISH at 1(800) 333-3474. Tell DISH you want KMOV back on your cable lineup," KMOV said.
