CBS and Dish Network reach deal ending retransmission dispute

Dish to carry the CBS stations, along with CBS Sports Network, Pop and Smithsonian Channel. The blackout affects cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, San Francisco, Boston, Tampa, Seattle, Minneapolis, Detroit, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh. Dish's 13.2 million customers are important to advertisers on CBS, which also counts on the satellite carrier's subscriber fees. Video distributors such as Dish have to pay a per-subscriber carriage fee for the right to broadcast networks such as CBS. The antenna offer was based on the reception available at the subscriber's home. "Since 2013, Dish has dropped the signals of 29 different companies, representing almost 400 television stations, clearly indicating that these tactics are commonplace for them". This also isn't the first time CBS has vanished for millions of Dish subscribers.

The two companies have reached a multi-year carriage agreement.

The standoff occurred during one of the most popular viewing times of the year, featuring big college football games throughout the Thanksgiving weekend, and an NFL doubleheader on Sunday.

The dispute had affected 18 markets, where CBS signals had been pulled from Dish services.
