Hearst Station Goes Dark to Service Electric

Service Electric Cable TV customers in Lancaster, Pa. have been without NBC affiliate WGAL-TV since midnight Sunday after the parties failed to renew their retransmission consent agreement.

According to a report in the Reading [Pa.] Eagle, pricing for the Hearst Television-owned station appears to be at the heart of the dispute. Service Electric has carried the channel for more than 25 years, according to the paper.
