“Unfortunately, the verses of DirecTV AT-T U have not reached an agreement with Tegna to keep our channels available for their services. Our company has successfully negotiated multi-year contracts with hundreds of cable and satellite providers across the country without disrupting service,” Tegna said in a statement. From 19 .m. On Wednesday, local Dish Network subscribers lost access to Fox59 and CBS4 after their parent company, Nexstar Media, failed to reach a new deal with Dish. The communications company and the channel failed to reach a new agreement on Tuesday, resulting in the loss of more than 60 channels on DirecTV, AT-T-verse and the TV broadcast service AT-T. “We understand how our station may look like an unfair increase in our rates on DIRECTV and AT-T-Verse customers. , but that`s just not the case,” the channel explains. “Our prices are set by the market. WTHR has successfully negotiated agreements with all other suppliers in our region.

In fact, in recent years, we have entered into hundreds of agreements with cable and satellite companies across the country. In addition to the RSNs Sinclair took after the Disney Fox Deal deal, which was required to ease, the multi-year contract includes Sinclair`s local channel and the tennis chain. “The differentiated and non-replaceable programming we offer, including local live news, local and national live sports, and popular first-class network content, is an important reason why consumers continue to subscribe (on pay TV),” the statement said. “This value is reflected in the hundreds of agreements we have negotiated in recent years with cable, satellite, telecommunications and streaming providers nationwide.” If AT-T is unable to enter into agreements with CBS, Fox, ABC and NBC, the company claims that tens of thousands of DIRECTV customers in rural markets (and campers and truckers) will lose access to networked programs such as the news of the coronavirus pandemic. “It`s really up to DIRECTV and AT-Verse to decide. We are committed to reaching a fair agreement,” WTHR said in a statement. If DIRECTV and AT-T-Verse are prepared to make the same commitment, we are confident that we will be able to reach agreements that will reintegrate our station into the DIRECTV and AT-Verse verses. “It is essential for our customers to have access to television channels on the network, especially during this global pandemic,” said Tim McKone, Executive Vice President of Federal Relations at AT-T. “This agreement allows important workers, such as oil rigs and long-distance trucks, to stay in touch with information and information. We appreciate Fox for bringing consumer interests to the forefront, and we hope that other networks will follow suit. “In the midst of a prolonged pandemic, TEGNA is calling for the biggest interest rate hike we have ever seen and deliberately overshadowing its most loyal viewers,” the company said in a statement in the United States today.
