CBS Reaches Deal with Dish Network, But Not For OTT Service

Dec 10, 2014 cbs, dish network, ott, 0 Comments


Dish and CBS reportedly came to an agreement this past weekend, after weeks of tense negotiations and a short blackout of certain stations. Dish was unable to, however, obtain digital rights to CBS programming for their upcoming over-the-top streaming service.

This multi-year agreement between the two companies covers stations owned by CBS in 17 markets. Those stations include Showtime, TVGN and CBS Sports Network.

“We are very pleased with this deal, which meets all of our economic and strategic objectives. We look forward to having DISH as a valued partner for many years to come,” President of Television Networks Distribution Ray Hopkins said in a statement.

Dish is also dealing with expiring (or already expired) program licensing agreements with Turner Networks and Comcast regional sports networks.
