CBS, Dish settle after millions miss Cowboys-Chargers game

"As it stands, Dish customers won't be watching CBS in the days and weeks ahead", CBS said in its statement.

The deal, which includes all CBS-owned stations, as well as CBS Sports Network, Pop and Smithsonian Channel, comes after almost three days of no CBS programming from the cable provider. Sunday's Rams-New Orleans game from the Coliseum will be carried on CBS as scheduled, as well as many high-profile college football games on CBS and CBSSN this weekend. Luckily, Dish and CBS reached a multi-year agreement 12 hours after the blackout. Details about the deal, including financial terms weren't disclosed.

"CBS is attempting to tax Dish customers on programming that's losing viewers, tax Dish customers on programming available for free over the air, and tax Dish customers for content available directly from CBS", Dish executive vice president Warren Schlichting said in a statement. 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.

In the meantime, Dish stated it plans to provide subscribers in the affected markets with digital over-the-air antennas at no extra cost. 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.
