3 million Dish subscribers lose CBS stations in fee dispute

Dish Network subscribers stand to miss CBS's annual coverage of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as the companies carriage impasse continues

CBS says it and Dish Network are far apart in terms in their retransmission-consent negotiations, which have resulted in CBS being unavailable to millions of Dish subscribers since Monday (Nov. 20) at midnight.

"Effective 11:59 PM/AM, MT/1:59 AM, ET, DISH has dropped CBS and several other local television stations owned by CBS, in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston, Seattle, Tampa, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Pittsburgh and Baltimore".

CBS will broadcast the National Football League matchup between the Los Angeles Chargers and the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

"These contract disputes between Dish and CBS will make a lot of fans frustrated when they tune into the Patriots on Sunday and see nothing but a blank screen", Sen.

The U.S.'s No. 2 satellite operator is encouraging customers affected by the blackout of CBS across the country on Dish to reach out to businesses that advertise on the broadcaster's local stations 'to let them know you need their help getting CBS to end this dispute.'

"Now, Dish subscribers are in jeopardy of being without CBS over the Thanksgiving holiday, which would mean they would miss CBS Sports' NFL and SEC football coverage beginning Thursday", CBS said in a statement late Monday.

That pretty much solidifies it as one of the most vicious verbal assaults directed toward the president by a celebrity. He continued, "They should suspend your dumbass, mothafucker, all the goofy shit you do every day".

A key issue over Dish Network reluctance in renewing a retransmission/carriage deal with CBS Corp. comes down to its three cable networks.

"Dish, I am so over you it's unreal", one customer wrote on Dish's Facebook page.

DISH evp, marketing, programming and media sales Warren Schlichting told Cablefax on Tuesday that CBS is seeking "significant double-digit rate increases" for consent to continue carrying the flagship broadcast net.

S&P Global Market Intelligence's Kagan unit estimates the average TV station retransmission fee will be $2.10 by 2020. "CBS, meanwhile, has been attempting to advance discussions with Dish since January of this year".

Already this year, there have been 212 programming blackouts on various pay-TV systems - more than double the number from last year, according to the American Television Alliance, a Washington-based group that represents cable and satellite TV providers.

CBS said Wednesday that "As it stands, Dish customers won't be watching CBS in the days and weeks ahead." that may be true, though it could also be public posturing - these types of disputes are sometimes resolved in hours or days. That's a dramatic rise from 2010, when there were just eight blackouts.
