DISH, CBS reach carriage agreement

November 24, 2017

Having earlier admitted the possibility channels going dark on the pay-TV service, DISH Network has reached a multi-year carriage agreement with CBS Corporation for its owned and operated local stations, as well as CBS Sports Network, Pop, and Smithsonian Channel. The channels are currently being restored to DISH customers.

“We are grateful to our customers for their patience this holiday week as months of work has resulted in a deal that delivers CBS for years to come,” said Warren Schlichting, DISH executive vice president of Marketing, Programming and Media Sales.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The pair last resolved a similar dispute in December 2014.
