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.

@ajolivette, did you actually read this thread? It's not DirecTV that's taking away your local station. It's the local station ownership wanting more of your subscription dollars. Switching providers won't solve this problem because all providers are being held hostage more and more to negotiate ever increasing carriage contracts. It's an absurd situation, especially since these same broadcasters get to our public airwaves for free. So ask them why should we paying anything for these local stations?

As stated it is the station that removes their programs to hold you hostage, DTV would carry them while they negotiate.

@redtop13, your local station should reimburse you! They're the ones getting the money you pay to DirecTV to provide their channel. And yet they get to use our public airwaves for free! Tell them to quit being so greedy.

maybe directv should develop an ota tuner, drop all locals and provide the tuner to customers
if a station still wants to be carried, well they can pay directv to be on, and help lower our bills
sure would free up a bunch of sat space

It is the channel that removes their programing from DTV, DTV will carry them if the channel doesn't turn off the feed. How much more of your hard earned money do you want to give them for their free OTA programs? All providers have this problem so have fun hopping from one to the other.

We want to get WBNS back into your local lineup as soon as possible. All Dispatch needs to do is grant its permission. http://directvpromise.com/

when are you going to reach an agreement with Indianapolis NBC Channel 13- WTHR. It is getting ridiculous that i have to pay the money i do to watch TV and then to not have access to the 4 main networks, ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC. You are requiring me to purchase an antenna, and DVR to record the 20+ NBC shows i watch for $250-$350. You aren't reducing my u-verse bill to compensate for not having access to 'normal' local channels. REALLY?
