The outage means AT&T subscribers in major markets (where CBS owns the local channel) no longer have easy access to “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “CBS Sunday Morning” and “60 Minutes.” It is very frustrating not to have entries if you are going to lose your local channels!! I hope that an agreement can be reached. We had this problem with AT&T last year. It might be time to switch to Spectrum!, Rich I watch tv with antenna reception. I also need a conversion box because I have an old TV. The reception is not so good, especially when a plane passes through my reception. My remote control for my converter has keys that no longer work. Everything went well until the other day, when I lost channel 3 CBS. I have everything I know, how to get it back, no luck. I`m on SS, and half of them go to my mortgage. I know how to live to the extent of my possibilities. But why take things that are supposed to be free? The agreement provides for the retransmission of CBS` 26 channels in 17 markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Tampa, Seattle, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
In March 2020, circle City Broadcasting filed a federal racial discrimination lawsuit against Dish, in collaboration with the National Association of Owned Owned Broadcasters. I left directly because all you do is remove the channels, but every time I got my bill, it went up every month. I`ve had it twice directly, and both times it was the worst business I`ve ever had to do. You will lose customers again and again because att and direct does not want their customers, all they want is your money and give a terrible service. The customer service is rude and isn`t there to help you unless you pay them for something I`ll never use or directly for TV or phone. They have to put it together before they lose all the customers they have. I would leave without the TV before trusting them again. You twice, and I`m done with both.
“Unfortunately, direcTV AT&T U-Verse has not reached an agreement with Tegna to keep our channels on the 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. In a statement shared with viewers via their social media platforms on the eve of Thanksgiving, WTHR warned of the threat of a power outage as negotiations between the two sides did not result in a new deal. AT&T stops rubbing shoulders with your loyal customers. Get an agreement so that we don`t lose our channels/programs. Tegna, based in Tyson, Virginia, responded that its proposal to AT&T was “market-compliant,” the company said in a statement to USA TODAY. I`ve been at Direct TV for years. Was with them before AT&T bought them, the service was much, much better. AT&T is the worst company out there.
Every time I turn around, they increase the cost of their service. I will stop my service and return to a local news and shows antenna These companies are only greedy, greedy, greedy. CBS has two channels in Southern California, KCBS-TV (Channel 2) and KCAL TV (Channel 9), both included in the blackout. The outage involved CBS`s Smithsonian, CBS Sports Channel and four CBS television stations that broadcast CW programs. Customers of AT&T`s other TV platforms – U-Verse and DirecTV Now, a streaming service – are now without CBS programs. I agree with you 100%! You have to stop playing these games with us and reach a compromise and keep all the channels! They get a lot of dollars from their customers and could lose a lot if that happens! Everyone needs local channels always and especially during the pandemic!! Tegna has 64 channels in the 51 markets affected by this blackout, which reach 41.7 million TV households.
