CBS blackout

2 Aug, 2013

The cable provider blacks out CBS stations in several cities after failing to resolve the companies’ dispute by 5 p.m. Over three million customers are affected in cities where CBS owns the network affiliates, while customers nationwide lose access to CBS-owned premium channels like Showtime, The Movie Channel, and The Smithsonian Channel.

It’s become clear that no matter how much time we give them, they’re not willing to come to reasonable terms. We thank our customers for their patience and support as we continue to fight hard to keep their prices down.
