Nexstar and CBS Fix

Dear AT&T,

Don’t really care who is at fault and not interested in a lame antenna to get local channels.  You need to fix your dispute soon or I will switch back to the terrible but local channels available Comcast.  Please don’t make me switch. 

 

Sincerely, 

Want to be loyal.

Re: What is going on

Your CBS removed their feed to DTV because DTV will not pay them what they are asking to renew the contract and they are the only ones who can return it. There is a clause in the TOS that states that channels and programing are subject to change at anytime, DTV may give you a credit if you call. The FCC will not allow any provider to replace your local CBS.

What would be the alternate channel to watch Big Brother and Young and the Restless on?

Since channel 11(CBS) has been off the air --what would be the alternate channel to watch our favorite 2 programs--Young and the Restless and Big Brother?

Over the air antenna or CBS All Access.

That is what I want to know. I shouldn’t have to also have to pay CBS all access to watch my shows in addition to paying AT&T. They need to come to an agreement

So as stated see if you can receive it on an antenna, and if you can, buy an appropriate one and set it up.  Look at tvfool.com to see what you can get from your location, where to point your antenna, and recommendation for an appropriate antenna size to get it.

Re: What is going on

Folks complain when local station owners pull their channels from providers like DirecTV demanding more money.
And folks complain that their subscription rates are too high.
So what are service providers like Dish, Comcast and DirecTV to do?

Here's a suggestion. File a complaint with the FCC. Ask that the FCC allow service providers to deliver another network station instead. That would stop this BS in a heartbeat. After all, these corporations get to use our public airwaves for FREE!

Re: CBS

directv will not drop anything

 

the station however may shut down the signal to force directv to pay more

this will in turn raise your price

 

i support anything that keeps my price from going up

 

 

fyi cbs is free with an antenna

Re: Aaack! I hate Direct TV!

I'm about to drop ATT and go back to Charter!  Fix your Nexstar dispute or lose my business!

Re: Aaack! I hate Direct TV!

[Per Guidelines:  Keep it Relevant and Appropriate]. I know that when I signed up, I picked a package based on the channels that were to be provided.  Now those promised channels are not available.

 

I'm sure there's fine print (there always is) that cover's ATT in this scenario, but I think ATT customers need to band together!  Individual voices are never heard, a group voice has a better chance.  

 

Maybe we should refuse to pay our bills until this is resolved?  Or make a mass exit to Charter/Comcast/Hulu?

 

Just thinking out loud...

CBS removal

What are you doing to make sure CBS doesn’t go dark tonight? I don’t want to have to subscribe to CBS all access or go and purchase an antenna when I already pay a lot for Uverse. I am very upset that I may not be able to watch my shows that I enjoy on CBS like Young and the Restless and Big Brother
