Dish Network and CBS end their three-day-old programming fee fight

  • Dish Network Customers in Nation's Three Biggest Markets Will Miss the Cowboys Game

"We are grateful to our customers for their patience this holiday week as months of work has resulted in a deal that delivers CBS for years to come", Schlichting said. On the site, Dish alleges CBS is asking the satellite operator to pay "more than 50 percent higher than what we now pay to carry this channel".

The agreement, which does not include online channels on Dish's Sling TV, allows Dish to use CBS content across various US cities, according to a statement late Thursday.

Other markets, including New York, Dallas, Los Angeles and Chicago, contended with blackouts that left millions unable to view Thanksgiving Day's Chargers-Cowboys game.

CBS announced yesterday that it had reached a multi-year agreement with Dish for the latter to carry its local stations and cable channels such as Pop and Smithsonian Channel.




"As it stands, Dish customers won't be watching CBS in the days and weeks ahead", CBS said in its statement. CBS offers All Access, its own web-based streaming service starting at $5.99 a month. Dish's 13.2 million customers are important to advertisers on CBS, which also counts on the satellite carrier's subscriber fees.

For many Dish subscribers, you may have noticed an National Football League blackout in your area, meaning no traditional National Football League on Thanksgiving.

The dishpromise.com site also has a Ways to Watch section where you can select CBS programming from a drop-down menu in order to find ways to watch it during the Dish blackout. This may be an unforgivable sin to some, but both Disk and CBS have come to an agreement to settle the dispute and restore services to subscribers that were affected by the blackout.

The deal comes after nearly three days of no CBS programming on Dish, including the NFL game on Thanksgiving Day, though it will allow football fans to watch SEC college games Friday and Saturday and an NFL doubleheader on Sunday.
