Dish Network and CBS end their three-day-old programming fee fight

CBS Dish Network reach agreement resolving content fee dispute

Dish said it is offering free over-the-air antennas to customers so they can watch CBS free of charge. Dish says the channels are now being restored to its customers. 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. 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".

CBS fired back in its statement Wednesday, claiming that Dish Network is "desperate to retain subscribers" and "clearly, pulling content providers off the air is Dish's way of doing things". Those fees are sometimes passed down to the pay-TV subscribers in higher subscription costs.
