The boys will notice...but my wife will kill. Last night we were watching Real World/Road Rules Challange(laugh if you will) and a message from viacom saying.. dish wasn't gonna pay.. started rolling on the screen and within seconds Dish blacked out the portion of the screen that had the rolling message...and my wife said...I better not miss my Real World tomorrow...and I said... surely you won't...I am pretty much up a creek...Dish is... going, going, gone.. in my house if they don't get this fixed asap!

Dish is in a much better position here. The effect is immediate for Viacom. Advertisers are going to demand a refund due to the loss of viewers. The effects will take longer for Dish to feel.
My guess is they will settle with a compromise that leans more in favor of Dish.
