The one element missing in satellite TV deal, the details

You may have read in Sunday’s Mail Tribune that Northwest Broadcast and satellite programmer DISH Network patched up their differences, putting KMVU-TV’s FOX programming back o the air for local DISH subscribers.
While the release quoted executives from both parties, it did nothing to assure everyone else this won’t happen again before you know it. More to the point: “Terms of the agreement between DISH and Northwest were not disclosed.” In other words, when the new contract expires and the inevitable blackout follows, we still won’t know who is bending the truth more when the finger pointing begins over “ridiculous” demands. If it were in black and white for all to see, customers would know whose switchboard should get flooded.

Umpqua Bank said late last week it plans to expand its private banking services into Seattle and San Francisco. The move couples Umpqua Investments brokerage affiliate and high-touch banking for clients with more than $3 million in net worth and $1 million in assets.
Umpqua Private Bank provides lending and real estate expertise, retirement planning, trust administration and traditional investment guidance.
