    Flash: CBS stations pulled from Dish Network in contract dispute

    (latimes.com) - Millions of Dish Network customers lost easy access to CBS programming late Friday after the two media companies failed to agree on a new contract.

    Negotiations went down to the wire and continued 24 hours beyond a Thursday deadline set by CBS. Negotiations continued on Friday before the two sides reached an impasse.

    "Effective today at 7 p.m. Eastern Time, CBS programming is no longer available to Dish subscribers in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, Dallas, Denver, Boston, Chicago, Pittsburgh and several other markets," CBS said in a statement. "CBS has been negotiating a carriage agreement with Dish for six months and has already granted two extensions. During this time, Dish has dragged its feet at our many attempts to negotiate in good faith."
