    Yeah I don't but that it's simply cbs sports net that is causing this, there is more to it.

    He is probably trying to get a killer deal n streaming the sports channel and cbs is likely laughing at what he wants.

    I can't wait to see when it does all come back if they disable auto hop for three days like abc did.

    Thats a given. The questions is will it be 7 days as Networks are now using C7 for ratings.

    I guess that's one advantage of keeping my ol VIP722. As long as we switch our CBS shows to recording the OTA feed we should be ok for the short term. I installed a leaf antenna last year and it works surprisingly well.

    You can always access their shows on-line. They can't block Dish customers from streaming on CBS.com like they did with Time Warner. ;)

    Went over to the Dish faceboon page. The CSR's are not really comenting on the complaints this time, but it looks like more people are willing to jump ship more quickly as they are losing their Bronco games.

    the advertisers pay CBS based on the number of homes watching, without Dish that number just went down.

    Yup. It's the number of sets, not the number of eyes. If 20 households turn it off and everyone from those houses goes to a single bar to watch, their numbers dropped by 20. There may be some formula that considers the number of eyes watching at a public performance venue, but it wouldn't be the same as multiple households.

    OK, we can all take a deep breath. The deal is done!!

    For those that lost CBS, you only lost it for a few hours. For the rest of the country, it wasn't anything other than fodder for discussion.

    All the CBS O&O are back and Showtime Anywhere (Anytime??) and VOD are now part of the deal too. That's been a very long time coming.

    I've not read if the new OTT service is part of all of this yet.

    I hooked up a simple antenna that I bought for $14 and it worked great. It's a Leopard HD. My CBS channel looks terrific.

    As I turned the TV on this morning at 8:30 AM in Pittsburgh, the local CBS affiliate (KDKA) is back on DISH. Something positive must have happened overnight, Also on the guide, the notification channel that sat next to it warning of the loss of CBS is now gone.

    Perhaps Charlie blinked after CBS gave him a moment of pause.

    Now you're ready if it happens again. If I had the antenna option thats all I would use, getting the local sports broadcast and rest on the roku would be enough. Unfortunately zero antenna reception here.

    DISH’s AutoHop commercial-skipping functionality will not be available for CBS Television Network-owned stations and affiliates during the C7 window.

    What really matters to CBS :rolling: more so than increased carry fee's

    So, it really was about the 18 minutes per hour of commercials.

    Not sure what "C7" window means, though.

    It does not matter to me; I do not use this feature anyway.

    I don't get both Directv and Dish when a price hike happens but still have disputes, then why give the "We're fighting to keep prices lower for customers" speech, I know that content owners are asking for ridiculous prices per sub,
    But why say something you can't promise on.

    "Not sure what "C7" window means, though."


    According to the Nielsen Ratings wiki page, C7 is defined as "live plus 7 days". So it will be a week before AutoHop is activated. Since the PTAT folder only holds programs for up to 8 days that doesn't leave much time for viewers who want to utilize the functionality. Unless they go to the PTAT folder and save the specific programs they wish to view after the 8 day window,

    You guys are clueless as to how TV Advertising work and to posting (TV AD SALES TERM). Again you need to re-read post 154 again, even though you replied to the post stating that. It is not homes, it is eyeball IN DEMO.

    Furthermore, in the just released November Ratings (10/30-11/26), CNN saw the most growth year-to-year, increasing 34 percent in total day viewers and 55 percent in the demo compared to November 2013.

    Meanwhile, MSNBC lost 13 percent of its total viewers and 16 percent of its demo viewers year-over-year.

    Why does that matter? CNN was pulled of Dish during that period (~15M subs) and increased 34% while MSNBC which was added to replace CNN lost 13% from the year prior.

    So blackouts of ~15M subs does NOT mean disaster for a Channel, And adding more subs, even when another channel is not available, does indicate success.
