Ahhhh yes. It's an American classic. Not the football - the dispute between networks and cable providers.

Michiganders, your football season officially starts tonight...and there's a chance that you won't be able to watch.

Their first preseason game against the Patriots is tonight and, if you're a DISH Network subscriber, you won't be able to watch it.

DISH and WNEM have not reached an agreement yet and will not be carrying their local programming. However, if you've got all the streaming services and an over-the-air antenna, you're gravy.

If you're ticked off, reach out to DISH at:1-800-333-3474 and tell DISH you want WNEM back on your lineup.
