DISH Network subscribers can breathe a sigh of relief now that all LIN Media programming has been restored in the 17 different markets that were affected by the negotiations. Major cities like Albuquerque and Green Bay had to miss out on the 'Top 13' week of 'American Idol,' but luckily an agreement has been reached so Buffalo, Ft. Wayne, Lafayette and others will be able to watch all of the March Madness action on CBS. Although the exact terms of the retrans consent agreement were not disclosed, DISH subscribers can be assured that they won't be missing out on any of their favorite primetime programming or NCAA Men's Basketball Division I Championship Tournament, starting Tuesday (March 15), for the complete TV schedule visit our March Madness blog post.
