Dish's 13.2 million customers are important to advertisers on CBS, which also counts on the satellite carrier's subscriber fees.
TV networks like CBS can offset losses from traditional TV providers through partnerships with online and non-traditional partnerships.
Late Thursday evening, Dish Network and CBS reached an agreement, just hours after more than three million Dish Network customers found they were unable to watch the LA Chargers and Dallas Cowboys game.
Warren Schlicting, Dish's executive vice president of marketing and programming, recorded a video featured on the site that explains how the company's carriage dispute with CBS is a microcosm of a larger, fractured relationship between broadcasters and pay-TV providers.

In a statement Tuesday, Dish Network claimed that CBS chose to black out Dish customers' access to its channels in an effort to raise rates and gain negotiating leverage.
For some satellite subscribers, a standoff between Dish and CBS over a carriage agreement meant no traditional National Football League on Thanksgiving, an unforgivable slight to some.
The settlement comes in time to spare the Missouri at Arkansas game on Friday, top-ranked Alabama at Auburn and next week's Niners-Bears matchup from being held hostage in the dispute, which pulled CBS-owned stations off Dish in Chicago and 16 other cities.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The blackout had prevented almost 3 million Dish subscribers from watching the NFL's Los Angeles Chargers play the Dallas Cowboys on the Thanksgiving holiday.
The new deal between the two companies also included additional cable channels such as CBS Sports Network, POP and Smithsonian. At the same time, CBS and other content companies have asked for huge increases in the fees they receive for their programming to pay for rising sports rights fees and other programming costs.
