The commercial flare-up between the TV giants has spilled over into disaster for viewers.
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.
