CBS and Dish Network reach deal ending retransmission dispute

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

While CBS, the most-watched broadcast network, is a desirable asset, a sticking point for Dish was the modestly rated cable networks like Smithsonian, Pop and CBS Sports Network that CBS Corp. had insisted on bundling with the Big 4 net.

Dish Network announced Thursday it has reached a multi-year agreement with CBS to resume carrying the network's owned and operated local stations, including KCBS-TV Channel 2, along with three cable networks, ending a three-day blackout.

The CBS blackout on Dish came amid much tension between network owners like CBS and pay-TV distributor such as Dish.

Trump renews call for 'ban' after deadly attack in Egypt
After at least two explosions, the attackers waited outside the mosque and gunned down worshipers as they tried to flee to safety. The security officers said the men opened fire on worshipers during prayers while driving in off-road vehicles.

CBS offers viewers a web-based streaming subscription option for $5.99 per month. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. 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". But both companies have now reached a multi-year deal after a blackout on CBS programming to two million subscribers for nearly three days. "Dish customers will continue to get CBS' must-have content, while we are also able to achieve our short and long-term economic and strategic goals".

Local stations owned by CBS went dark Tuesday morning on the Dish system.

Warren Schlicting, Dish's executive vice president of marketing and programming, recorded a video featured on the site that explains how the company's carriage dispute with CBS is a microcosm of a larger, fractured relationship between broadcasters and pay-TV providers. At the same time, CBS and other content companies have asked for huge increases in the fees they receive for their programming to pay for rising sports rights fees and other programming costs. Almost 4 million customers nationwide, in 18 different markets, are affected.
