Today thousands of Dish Network customers in Central Oregon cannot view KOHD TV, the local ABC affiliate. That's because negotiations broke down between Dish Network and Chambers Communications, the owner of KOHD. The five year contract expired Wednesday night at midnight. Dish spokesperson Francie Bauer says Chambers Communications was asking for almost a 500% increase to carry the station. She was surprised that Chambers allowed the contract to expire. "No one has ever not negotiated when asking for a 500% rate increase. So this is the highest one I've seen where someone is not willing to come to the table and offer something more reasonable.” Meanwhile, Chambers Communications has a statement posted on their website. They say that Dish rejected several offers from them.   Chambers also points out that they've reached new long term agreements with every other major cable and satellite carriers at the same "fair market" rate they are asking of Dish.
