No resolution near on Dish Network blackout

No resolution near on Dish Network blackout”

"I. hope for Patriots' fans' sake that a quick resolution can get our team back on Dish customers' screens in time to see this AFC East rivalry game on Sunday", he said in a statement. "Dish is a 23 billion dollar company that clearly cares more about its profits than the consumer".

Early Tuesday morning, local stations owned by CBS went dark on Dish Network's satellite system. "Reach out to local businesses to let them know that you need their help getting CBS to end this dispute".

For example, in the NY market, Dish lists the phone numbers for the following businesses that have advertised on CBS's WCBS-TV: Nitehawk Cinema, Brooklyn Expo Center, Hudson Terrace, Manhattan Motorcars, Carmine's Italian Restaurant and Patsy's.

In L.A., Dish lists KCBS advertisers including Napa Valley Grille, Weintraub, Selth & Nguyen, Riviera Upholstery, Café Pinot, Hopscotch Tavern, and Canaletto Ristorante Veneto.

"Having deprived its subscribers of almost 400 stations since 2013, Dish is infamous within the media industry for its long history of disputes with its content providers", CBS said.

In a statement Wednesday, CBS said it has not been pulled by a distributor since its last negotiation with Dish in 2014.

The network added that it's "committed to providing premium content to our viewers and will continue to negotiate fair value for that content".

Dish Network subscribers may be having their Thanksgiving turkey without the National Football League games slated to air on CBS this year.

Also on dishpromise.com, Dish is listing the phone numbers of local CBS stations and is pointing out to subscribers that they can watch CBS's programming on CBS All Access, the broadcaster's internet-video subscription service.

The Massachusetts Democrat, who sits on the Senate's Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, urged representatives from Dish and CBS to come to an agreement on the retransmission dispute, which he said requires Boston-area Dish customers to have a digital antenna to view local CBS affiliate WBZ. As pay TV providers have in recent blackouts, Dish is offering antennas to subscribers so that they can attempt to tune in the local over-the-air network.

Warren Schlichting, executive vice president of marketing, programming and media sales of Dish Network, told Variety: "We would drop them if we could, but if they are going to force us to take them, we are certainly not interested in overpaying".
