Six Months Later, CBS Still Absent From DISH In SWFL



NAPLES, FLA. — On Saturday afternoon, a guest staying at the Hilton Naples turned on the TV in her room and attempted to watch the local CBS affiliate.

Instead of regular programming, a message from DISH Network appeared in its place.

For locals, the message was no surprise: It’s been there for more than six months.

It could be there for weeks to come, as one of the nation’s most prolonged — and quietest — retransmission fee disputes continues in Southwest Florida.
