UPDATE: AT AT&T, the spokesperson said a new retransmission agreement has been reached and the channels will return to DirecTV and AT&T. “Unfortunately, direcTV AT&T U-Verse has not reached an agreement with Tegna to keep our channels on air,” Tegna said in a statement posted on Twitter. The statement also said customers can continue to watch their channels on other local streaming providers or services as well as on the air for free. The agreements appear to have been concluded after the new law came into force. DIRECTV followers this morning posted messages on internet forums like DBSTalk.com and Twitter that they had lost the remote subsidiaries of CBS, NBC and ABC, but that Fox remained. I agree with J Nordstrom and Mike, I`ve talked to a lot of people who have lost CBS E/W streams, but fox/NBC E/W-Feeds, Directv can give us at least one metric of what this is based on, is it the distance from the tower, is it possible that CBS was turned off before the new deal was cut, individuals can recover CBS, your Directv employees have been fully informed, clearly based on my phone call and others they don`t have, they don`t have the details of the new deals, a memo can be sent to the after-sales service reports. This information would preserve Directv`s privacy with the networks, but would give subscribers the feeling that if the new rules actually allow them to continue observing, they will somehow know, without having to worry that the Directv representative simply does not have the adequate information. “We understand what it may look like for our channel to unfairly raise our prices for DIRECTV and AT&T-U-Verse customers, but that`s simply not the case,” the channel says. “Our prices are set by the market. WTHR has successfully negotiated contracts with all other suppliers in our region. In fact, in recent years, we have entered into hundreds of contracts with cable and satellite companies across the country. Both sides were able to speak until 1 December 7.
S.m no deal The communications company and the channel failed to reach a new deal on Tuesday, resulting in the loss of more than 60 channels on DirecTV, AT&T U-verse and streaming service AT&T TV. Dozens of Texas TV channels owned by Nexstar and Tegna could be inaccessible to satellite TV customers if the owners fail to reach an agreement with TV providers on what the companies want to charge for the transmission of broadcast channels. “Unfortunately, DIRECTV and AT&T U-Verse have not entered into an agreement with Tegna to keep our channels available on their services. Our company has successfully entered into multi-year contracts with hundreds of cable satellites across the country without interruption of service,” said Anne Bentley, a spokeswoman for Tegna, noting that the company`s channels are available on other service providers and streaming services. “This value is reflected in the hundreds of agreements we have negotiated in recent years with cable, satellite, telecommunications and (streaming) providers across the country,” the statement said. 7 p.m. On Wednesday, local Dish Network subscribers lost access to Fox59 and CBS4 after their parent company, nexstar Media Group, failed to reach a new deal with Dish. . . .
