CBS began warning viewers Friday night that the network’s programming might go dark on Dish Network, in the latest distribution dispute to potentially affect TV viewers, Variety reports.
“Attention, Dish customers! You could soon lose CBS,” the network warned viewers. The dispute could impact 14 CBS-owned stations covered under a Dish agreement, as well as seven CW stations, two My Network stations and three independent stations.
The contract between CBS and Dish is set to expire Nov. 20. Showtime and CBS Sports Network could also be impacted, Variety adds.
The two companies remain “far apart on talks for a new distribution deal,” Reuters reports.
