advert in the satellite wars

This Viacom advertisement ran in the Wednesday, March 10, 2004, New York Post. The ad outlines Viacom's position on the dispute with Echostar/Disk Network satellite television. Echostar/Disk Network suspended transmissions of Viacom's signal, effectively pulling CBS, MTV, BET, Nickelodeon and other popular channels owned by Viacom off the air for their satellite television customers.  The dispute lasted about 48 hours and Viacom  content is back on Echostar. (AP Photo/Viacom via The New York Post)

I had a hard time taking sides in this battle between two oversized media conglomerates, but it humors me.
