CBS Back on Dish Network, Programs Now Immune to AutoHop Feature

Dish Network customers tuning into The Amazing Race or Blue Bloods on Friday night saw a whole lot of nothing — but by morning had CBS back on their dial.

At 7pm ET/4 pm PT on Friday, subscribers to the satellite service lost programming from CBS-owned stations.

The move came after six months of failed negotiations — and two contract extensions — between the network and Dish to reach a new carriage deal.

UPDATE: Per our sister site Deadline, CBS was back on Dish by Saturday morning, after the two companies arrived at a multi-year agreement that, among other terms, will make CBS programs immune to the satellite service’s “AutoHop” feature (which fast-forwards through commercials) for the first seven days of DVR playback.
