CBS, Dish Network reach agreement resolving content fee dispute

The Douglas County-based satellite TV provider (Nasdaq: DISH) said Thanksgiving night that programming for CBS-owned and operated local stations, such as KCNC-TV in Denver, as well as CBS Sports Network, Pop, and Smithsonian Channel, was being restored for customers.

"We are pleased we have reached a deal with DISH, who recognizes the value that the number one Network brings to viewers in these markets", said Ray Hopkins, President, Television Networks Distribution, CBS Corporation. On the site, Dish alleges CBS is asking the satellite operator to pay "more than 50 percent higher than what we now pay to carry this channel". Now, less than a week later, Dish has announced that it has signed a new multi-year carriage deal with CBS. Apparently, last week's episode was not played for Dish Network costumers because of it.

Robinho gets 9 yrs for gang rape (4)
Robinho burst onto the scene as a teenager at Real Madrid , where he played for three seasons before moving to the Premier League. Former Manchester City football star Robinho has reportedly been sentenced to nine years in prison for rape by a Milan court.

CBS debuted its own subscription service, CBS All Access, in 2014, offering live and on-demand access to its robust library. During the standoff, CBS had maintained that while Dish has complained about the fees being asked for the cable networks, it has paid "at least one cable network more than double our asking price, for far less than half the ratings".

The dishpromise.com site also has a Ways to Watch section where you can select CBS programming from a drop-down menu in order to find ways to watch it during the Dish blackout.

An ongoing dispute between CBS and Dish Network could prevent subscribers in 18 major markets - including Los Angeles and Dallas - from watching the network's Thanksgiving NFL game between the Los Angeles Chargers and Dallas Cowboys. This may be an unforgivable sin to some, but both Disk and CBS have come to an agreement to settle the dispute and restore services to subscribers that were affected by the blackout.
