DirecTV to temporarily restore Nexstar-owned stations

Source: CNBC

Published Sun, Sep 17 2023 6:21 PM EDT Updated 2 Hours Ago


DirecTV and Nexstar have agreed to temporarily return the signals of the Nexstar-owned stations and national cable news network NewsNation to DirecTV, DirecTV Stream and U-verse, the companies said in a joint statement on Sunday.

In July, satellite provider DirecTV removed TV station owner Nexstarís network and local community programming from its satellite, cable and streaming systems as they failed to reach a new distribution agreement.

Nexstar, the largest local TV station owner in the U.S., had previously said that DirecTV rejected its offer to extend the current distribution agreement to Oct. 31, affecting its markets in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Denver.

1. NFL probably played a part in restoration.

I was blocked from CBS in my area. I generally only watch 6pm news and later Jeopardy. That is only 5 hours weekly.

NexStar couldn't be benefitting from ads if Local stations weren't be broadcast on DirecTv. And I doubt there are many viewers to justify the carriage fees NexStar wants.

3. Glad we have KTLA Channel 5 back on DirecTV here in L.A.

It's my go-to source for local news.
