Not sure how many La Crosse-Eau Claire people are here but the FOX affiliate (WLAX/WEUX) in La Crosse-Eau Claire is currently bumped off Dish Network. Subscribers can complain but until the re-transmitting fees dispute is worked out I'd say we're S.O.L.

To our loyal FOX 25/48 viewers who are Dish subscribers. We earnestly thank you for your patience and support during our negotiations with the Dish Network. Please rest assured our entire management staffs are working around the clock, trying to come to an agreement with the Dish Network comparable to all our other cable agreements. However, Dish continues to not answer our phone calls or meet with our negotiating team, dragging out the process at their own pace. Dish has and has always had—our full permission to air all our stations at no additional cost to them at any time they choose, even during contract negotiations. We were just as surprised as our viewers when Dish pulled our stations from their air. The decision to do so was a decision DISH made, and theirs alone. But we will continue to work to get your FOX 25/48 back to you as soon as possible! Again, our thanks for your patience, understanding and support!
