CBS-Dish Dispute Leaves Viewers Unable To Watch Favorite Shows


CBS

A long-running dispute between CBS and satellite TV company Dish Network has boiled over and impacted American TV viewers. After days of strong-arm bargaining, CBS Corp. has made good its threat to shut off its signal to Dish if the latter failed to agree a new deal to rebroadcast CBS’ programming.

As a result, Dish customers are no longer able to see shows such as ‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘Blue Bloods’, ’60 Minutes’ and NFL football. The company’s largest market is Los Angeles, so it will be very keen to see this flare-up extinguished and normal service resumed as soon as possible.
