Bad news is in the Sinclair press conference they said their Stations are all up for renewal with Directv in Sept.
Hope this is not an other black out.
This could be why they invented the LCC. Lot of of disputes a coming . .

WHAT THEY DO, is with the Local Channel connector for Directv they give it out for free when there is a dispute. Then you still get your locals. Just like the DIsh USB tuner

They also added ALL guide data for over the air on Directv, where DISH mostly just has the BIG 5 Guide data.
I get like 30 channels free over the air with the LCC solution. All with OTA Guide data now

That's good news

I red a rumor somewhere it will include CBS AA , any solid info on that.



Hopefully the nexstar can be fixed too

That would be awesome! I'm curious if All Access would be included for those who are in non O&O areas. I'm suprised that ATT hasnt talked with Hulu, Netflix and ABC. Could you imagine how many subs they could bring back if they had a package that included all of the streaming services, simplified into one bill bundled in with your DirecTV and ATT TV streaming services? That would be a winner.

What I understood a major point of dispute was that Directv wanted to pay for only their customers who received the channels via satellite, while CBS wanted them to pay for every customer in the DMA.

If Directv paid for only those who receive the channel via satellite, customers could opt out of their locals to save $15, and pick them up via other methods like OTA or Locast. Also some people who have cable internet may be able to get locals off their cable if they are unencrypted and the cable company either didn't install a filter or the one they installed doesn't block the locals.

Funny how a lot of media outlets wrote about the dispute but I have not read 1 article (beyond offical from cbs) that the agreement has been reached
