Updated 10:45 AM MST DISH and Hearst Television have reached a multi-year agreement and all stations have been restored. Are you experiencing disrupted TV service on some of your favorite networks? If you subscribe to DISH, a disagreement with a programming provider may be the reason. Since DISH and Hearst haven’t been able to come to an agreement in order to extend their contract, broadcasting of popular Hearst-owned networks around the country, including ABC, NBC and The CW stations will be disrupted starting today. See the below chart to see if you’re service is affected. If you’re one of the affected DISH subscribers, rest assured that DISH and Hearst are still working together to reach an agreement in order to restore service.
