The dispute revolves around how much Dish will pay for 28 local CBS channels as well as three cable channels: Smithsonian Channel, Pop and CBS Sports Network.

Dish has proven willing in the past to let TV networks go dark in an effort to gain the upper hand in carriage talks. Schlichting in his statement Tuesday morning said, "On top of free availability with an antenna, the fact that CBS makes its content available a la carte on a streaming app has further eroded the value of its content for DISH and our customers".

USA satellite television provider Dish Network Corp's customers in 26 states lost access to local CBS Corp stations on Tuesday, following a dispute over the fees Dish pays to carry CBS content.

CBS says it has been trying for months to reach an agreement on retransmission fees for its content with Dish.

CBS on Sunday warned Dish subscribers they could lose CBS's signal; the network aired the message during programming including 60 Minutes.

Other CBS television stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston, Seattle, Tampa, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Pittsburgh and Baltimore - have also been affected. The company feels it should be getting better terms in exchange for its programming, which typically lures more viewers than competing fare.

He added: "We're ready to resume negotiations, but they haven't been in touch".

CBS said the satellite distributor has "deprived its subscribers of almost 400 stations since 2013" and is "infamous within the media industry for its long history of disputes with its content providers". Since 2010, subscribers to cable and satellite companies have worked through more than 800 blackouts, according to the American Television Alliance, an advocacy group that represents cable, satellite and telecommunications companies.
