There are other NBC stations that DirectTV has access to. They should be made available to customers until the problem with Nexstar can be resolved.

If not, going Xfinity may be the solution.


Per Federal regulations DirecTV is not allowed to provide you other local affiliates of NBC. They are only allowed to provide you what is in your Designated Market Area (DMA), and only with the permission from the local.

 

If DirecTV was allowed otherwise, it would take away a lot of the power from local affiliates like Nexstar. This is why locals had heavily lobbied for these regulations to maintain that control.

That is unfortunate. This is a big reason we want Federal regulations to change so that TV providers could provide an alternate option for the network, even if any local information is still tied to your local affiliate.

Not sure if typo or just a way to emphasize that you're rural, but DirecTV is satellite.

Recorded shows will still show programming, but only if they were recorded
prior to midnight in July 3. Anything after that will just be a blue
screen.

It will get resolved by Sep. due to NFL Sunday Ticket. I live in central Illinois and have lost Fox and now CBS. Without these 2 channels there is no Sunday Ticket. And trust me, the networks know this.

Local channels is where you watch in-market games. NFL Sunday Ticket is where you watch out-of-market games. Your local affiliates of FOX and CBS being pulled will in no way affect your option to get the NFL Sunday Ticket.

 

Perhaps you meant the NFL Season instead of the NFL Sunday Ticket? That is the only way your statement works. Though it is not guaranteed to be resolved by the start of the NFL season, it is certainly a critical timeline for the negotiations.

we should not have to go to another streaming device especially when I am paying for the services they promised.   I hold nextstar just as responsible as Directv.

This is absolutely ridiculous. Just because we pay for cable doesn’t mean we don’t pay just as much for our local channels. As someone else stated, a good customer service based company would not allow their customers to go without just because they can’t agree on a negotiation. Give us our channels back, this is out of hand. I’m tired Of flipping through to watch my shows to hear your god awful music and not get to watch my shows.

So you would prefer your TV provider allow your bill to go up to meet the high(er) rates that Nexstar wants instead of continuing to negotiate? I would prefer negotiations continue if it means minimizing any further rate hikes from the local owner. Caving quickly to the demands of the local affiliate with further rate hikes is not good customer service.

With DirectTV not able to televise NBC aka Nexstar, I had to go to a local eating establishment to watch my daughter on Tuesday nights. But this week that won't be the case I purchased a simple device that screws into the cable outlet bypassing DirectTV. I get over 200 stations free, no difference in picture quality.
I'll use the device and if I keep getting this quality, good-bye DirectTV.

Well they cannot force Nexstar to return the feed. They could agree to Nexstar's demands and allow our bills to get hit by it, but none of us want that. https://tvpromise.att.com/

 

In the meantime, use a antenna for their free broadcast (provided you are within range) or watch the many other channels that I would hope are the prime reason you are paying for a TV service (as opposed to your locals that have their free broadcast as normal).
