In case you didn't notice, CBS and DISH reached an agreement for carriage fees for CBS owned stations across the country. Of course the terms were not disclosed, but I'm betting they were steep, considering who it was (CBS.).
The CBS press bit went on to say...
“We are pleased we have reached a deal with DISH, who recognizes the value that the number one Network brings to viewers in these markets. DISH customers will continue to get CBS’ must-have content, while we are also able to achieve our short and long-term economic and strategic goals.”
