Dish Network contract dispute resolved; WDEF to stay on the air

Dish Network subscribers can breathe a sigh of relief: the Georgia-Tennessee football game will be available on Saturday.

Morris Network and Dish Network have resolved a contract dispute that threatened to cut off Dish subscribers from WDEF-TV, the local CBS affiliate, Morris Network president Dean Hinson said.

“We’ve resolved the situation and there will be no interruption to service with Dish,” he said. “There will be football this weekend if you’re on Dish Network.”

The deadline to resolve the dispute was today at 7 p.m.
