  • CBS, Dish Seen as Far Apart in Carriage Talks

"This particular dispute is yet another example of the company punishing its subscribers instead of negotiating a fair carriage deal that reflects the current marketplace", the network said in a statement. Dish no longer has the authorization to retransmit the signals of CBS stations in 26 states, including the CBS broadcast network, CBS Sports Network, Pop and the Smithsonian Channel.

According to the Times, Dish is offering customers affected by the outage over-the-air antennas so they can continue receiving CBS.

If the blackout continues, almost 3 million Dish subscribers will not be able to watch the NFL's Los Angeles Chargers play the Dallas Cowboys on the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday.

CBS, meanwhile, blames the dispute on Dish. When CBS and Dish last parried over their last contract, in 2014, subscribers lost access to CBS for a period of a few hours.

Seventeen CBS TV stations were dropped on the satellite pay TV service: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston, Seattle, Tampa, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

CBS says it has been trying for months to reach an agreement on retransmission fees for its content with Dish.

"We're obviously interested in carrying CBS broadcast networks but feel like the other three middling cable networks are just a tax", said Warren Schlichting, Dish executive vice president of marketing, programming and media sales, in an interview.

"We are ready when they are" to resume talks, said Schlichtling.

Local viewers can still watch WCCO if they use rabbit ears.

Federal regulators take a dim view of blackouts, which have been on the rise in recent years as traditional media companies press to secure better distribution deals in the wake of major disruption to viewership.
