directv changed my local channels on 8-1-18 in Lafayette IN

We've had directv since it came out 20+yrs ago and have had Indianapolis channels.  we live in 47905 zip code and now Lafayette IN has star city broadcasting which comes out of Arkansas with local commercials. The news video quality is worse than a teenager old smart phone, the local newscast are the same people on all 3 network channels. just brutal.

what can I do, i have called several times for a couple of hours at a time and they say they'll take care of it but they never do

comcast is not available and they tried the same channel switchero but their customers complained and they switched back to Indy channels

Hmm, that looks a lot like the info that would be in aac (agent answer center ,formerly known as "doris" which is part of the titles. Maybe I'm reading too much into it.

Re: directv changed my local channels on 8-1-18 in Lafayette IN

I contracted with DTV for local channels … they do not appear to recognize what they give is not my local channels.  I have had correct local channels for my area for 12 plus years … AT&T

is having trouble understanding LOGIC .   Any ideas how to approach this??

So Comcast did the same thing earlier this spring (change the local channels from Indianapolis to Lafayette), their customers had a fit and they changed them back to Indianapolis.  how can they get away with it? BTW, they now have Indy and Lafayette network channels

I'm sure when the FCC hears about it they will be fined.

DirecTV Now streaming, or DirecTV Satellite?  DirecTV Now is different and has a separate forum.
