It’s an american tradition that on Thanksgiving you do two things:
- Stuff your face with food
- Watch the NFL thanksgiving game
Well for some fans who currently have DISH network they might not be able to do number two on that list.
A dispute between CBS and DISH network, one that’s been raging since a 12 hour blackout back in 2014, has the Dallas Cowboys thanksgiving game against the L.A. Chargers blacked out.
The markets that will be affected our both the teams home markets – Dallas and Los Angeles – along with 12 other cities including:
- New York
- San Francisco
- and Baltimore
CBS has made several statements and a website that DISH viewers in these areas can view stating they can expect to lose their stations owned by CBS tonight at 11:59pm MT.
“We are unsure why CBS decided to involve customers in the contract negotion process at a point when there is still time for the two parties to reach a mutually beneficial deal” said DISH Network.
If the two networks can’t come to an agreement by Thursday a blackout might extend into the weekend which could also affect the annual Iron Bowl game between Alabama and Auburn.
