Why is Cagney & Lacey being blacked out?

Every night, the show Cagney & Lacey is being blacked out on the network Start TV. Can someone tell me why?

Apparently a local affiliate included a requirement for AT&T to carry their StartTV feed to carry their main feed.  It it likely that the affiliate is blocking the Cagney & Lacey for some reason (they may also carry it on their main feed). 

Do you have anyway to check the over-the-air signal of that channel?

Have you asked the local StartTV affiliate?

Start TV is carried OTA as a sub-channel and it's rare that AT&T carries a sub-channel.  I don't have it here in N. Texas.  That's the reason I asked for more info.

@JefferMC. That does make sense. I'm unable to check the iver-the-air feed (Can't find an antenna that works worth anything.)  Oddly, last night I was able to see both episodes. I was also able to view the show last weekend, so maybe it's only being blacked out for a defined number of hours/days. I'll see what happens next week. Thanks for the explanations!
