  • Dish Network Customers in Nation's Three Biggest Markets Will Miss the Cowboys Game (and Alabama-Auburn)

In an effort to end its stalled negotiations over a carriage agreement and end the CBS blackout, Dish Network is urging people to call companies that advertise on local CBS networks.

The two sides were fighting over the fees CBS wanted from Dish for retransmission. Although CBS channels will not be available on Sling TV they have recently agreed to provide channels to DirecTV Now and YouTube TV.

A dispute erupted between CBS and DISH Network over the price of carriage.

"Dish customers will continue to get CBS' must-have content, while we are also able to achieve our short and long-term economic and strategic goals", he added.

Fitch keeps South Africa's credit rating at junk
Moody's said it would reassess SA's debt after the ANC elective conference in December, and the main budget in February next year. The agency said in its report that weak economic growth had led to deterioration in public finances beyond previous expectations.

"We are grateful to our customers for their patience this holiday week as months of work has resulted in a deal that delivers CBS for years to come". The new agreement immediately enables college football fans to watch SEC and NFL games Friday and Saturday of the holiday weekend. Dish doesn't share exactly how much it pays CBS to retransmit its channels, but CBS's CEO Les Moonves estimated the network charges traditional cable companies $2 per subscriber at Goldman Sachs' Communacopia media conference earlier this year.

CBS and Dish Network have recently been involved in a contract dispute that has affected Impact Wrestling's distribution.

If you're a Chicago-area Dish Network subscriber who had to forgo watching the Cowboys' Thanksgiving loss to the Chargers or find an antenna to tune in CBS-owned WBBM-Ch.
