LIN and Dish offer deal


As LIN Television battles cable MSOs in multiple markets who have resisted signing new deals to pay for retransmission consent, the TV group owner has teamed up with EchoStar’s Dish Network to offer a special deal to new satellite subscribers. Under the offer, viewers in LIN TV’s markets where a LIN TV station is unavailable on cable will receive a 50-bucks prepaid MasterCard via mail when they sign up for the Dish Network service.
