CBS' Cable Networks Major Issue In Dish Dispute

On Thanksgiving day, CBS will carry the professional NFL game between the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams, as well as SEC conference football games on Friday and Saturday.

Tuesday morning, local stations owned by CBS went dark on Dish Network's satellite system.

The blackout affects Dish subscribers in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and other major markets.

CBS will broadcast the National Football League matchup between the Los Angeles Chargers and the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. The deal ends a blackout of Hearst stations on Dish services that began in early March, affecting stations in 26 markets, including Boston, Baltimore, Milwaukee, New Orleans and Orlando, Fla. According to the company's press release, "as DISH works to reach an agreement, the company is offering digital over-the-air (OTA) antennas at no cost so that customers in affected markets can watch CBS's local broadcast channels for free". The satellite TV provider also promised to reduce subscribers' bills by $10 per month if they agreed to drop the local TV stations from their lineup.

A key issue over Dish Network reluctance in renewing a retransmission/carriage deal with CBS Corp. comes down to its three cable networks. Such higher broadcast fees are contributing to the steady increases in pay-TV bills.
