I am done with Directv!!! I pay alot of money to have your service and you pull this crap!! I am tired of you putting the consumer in the middle of your fight with the local stations without any compensation for the days that we are without local channels. Lucky that the Patriots are playing on another channel!!! My New Years resolution is to DUMP Directv.

I have it in the NJ/NY area
Are you the original poster here? In the NJ/NY area, your ABC channel should be WABC on Ch7. But it depends on exactly where you're located. Check out www.directv.com/locals

It's NBC that removed its programs. How much more do you want to pay for one channel? All providers have the same contracts so it will happen to them also.

Unfortunately, the local affiliates make it seem like Directv is turning off their programming, where in actuality its the affiliates that control what is on the channel and want more money from Directv. The affiliates then tell the consumer to call Directv to "demand" they get their channel back on the air. Dirty pool, but that's how they operate.

So what is the call sign of this channel and is it involved in a retransmission dispute, any error messages?

I am not getting ABC channel. You need to resolve this issue with the dispute. I also want a discount. I am paying for something I am not receiving. The negottiations should have been started prior to the station going dark. If I wanted this I could get an antenna and get it for free!!!

DirecTV usually resolves these stupid contract negotiations faster than Dish and other service providers. Be sure to lean on that local station. They're the ones holding out for more of your money. And ask then why you should have to pay anything for stations that our government gives them free access to over-the-airwaves.
