ABC, NBC, CW, and CBS Turn Back On In Key Markets After Dish-Hearst Deal

Announced just before all of these networks have to present to advertisers.

Most of the major networks were turned off for Dish TV subscribers in Baltimore, Boston, Kansas City and Pittsburgh, but those issues appear to be resolved now that Dish and Hearst TV have a new deal in place. This deal includes retransmission rights of Hearst affiliate stations that include NBC, CW, CBS, and ABC networks in the aforementioned markets.

Those stations have been dark for Dish customers since March 3rd when the two sides couldn’t reach a deal.
