Dish CEO Charlie Ergen, speaking on the company's earnings conference call, said he sees potential for a deal but it is not done yet, indicating progress has been made. The deadline for the deal to be reached is midnight.
"I think that the tone on both sides, Viacom and Dish, has been more productive through the weekend and this week, so there actually probably is a path to continue carriage. But it's not done yet, and the devil's in the details." Ergen said on the conference call.
