It's no secret that problems between television service providers and networks are becoming more and more frequent as the years progress. And unfortunately for those who chose to get their television programming from Dish Network, the top station in the United States, CBS, may soon become unavailable.
After its latest rounds of talks with Dish Network, CBS has issued a very strict deadline for the satellite company: meet our demands by 7:00 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday, or lose our business. If CBS follows through on its threat, more than 14 million Dish Network customers will lose programming.
"In the last few weeks, we have granted two extensions," CBS said Tuesday, "in the hopes that this would give both parties sufficient time to come to a resolution. The second extension, which protected Dish subscribers' programming over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, was the final one."
With Thursday night being one of the premier nights for television programming, especially on CBS, customers are sure to be outraged by the blackout. Dish Network and CBS are actively trying to avoid such a scenario.
"Dish is actively working to reach a deal before the contract expires and has successfully negotiated agreements representing hundreds of stations in recent months that benefit all parties, including our viewers," the company's statement said.
