DISH isn't affected since they already serve all 210 local markets.

AT&T has negotiated a DNS carriage deal with Fox. Still working on the other networks...

www.multichannel.com/news/at-t-fox-strike-stelar-related-carriage-deal
So reading this link means AT&T has been BS-ing us about it being Congress's fault? It's really AT&T trying to force new contracts with individual networks and using a few small markets as levers. If this is so, any residual loyalty I might have had to AT&T just went the way of an ice cube in a hot pan.


AT&T/DTV didn't need contracts previously since STELAR gave them a blanket flat rate license for out of market carriage. With that license gone, they now have to negotiate individual contracts for each network or add the 12 DMA's they don't currently serve.

As of this morning we have lost ABC E and W and CW (no loss in my opinion). All other DNS channels are available.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

From "The TV Answer Man!"

Updated, June 1, 9:30 a.m. ET

DIRECTV can no longer carry ABC’s ‘out-of-market’ channel under a new law, but it has signed last-minute deals with CBS, NBC, Fox and the CW to continue offering its programming to certain rural residents, RV owners and others who can’t get their local network affiliates through the satcaster.

Updated: DIRECTV Loses ABC’s ‘Distant’ Channel, But Keeps Others
