    SatelliteGuys is hearing a strong Rumor that AT&T (DIRECTV) is close to a deal to bring CBS channels back to their lineups.

    We are hearing they are so close the channels could be back within 24 hours.

    Again this is just a rumor... so keep your fingers crossed. :)

    Thanks for being SatelliteGuys.

    I kinda like having the DC CBS instead of New York as a replacement...

    Same here. It's kind of nice to have a different perspective. Right now I'm just thankful to have anybody though since our local CBS is still tied up in the Nexstar dispute.

    That would be just about perfect, just before the College and Pro Football seasons start ...

    If they really wanted to piss off people, drag it along into the seasons.

    This is not surprising. Didn't sound like they were THAT far apart. The much thornier negotiation is between AT&T and Nexstar. They say that one might go awhile (although I still expect it to wrap up by kickoff of the regular NFL season first week of Sept.)...

    i don't follow College Football much but when does that season start? because I know this is CBS issue but a few ABC channels was lost in this mess, so i was hoping when college football kickoff they would come to a deal

    I think there is a Thursday game to start the Season, which would be August 29th.

    Make that Sat August 24th and yes theres games on the next Thursday as well.

    CBS sure is getting worked out a lot faster than Nexstar...
