WTHR, WBNS Off Of DirecTV, U-Verse

Dispatch Broadcast Group’s WTHR Indianapolis (NBC) and WBNS Columbus, Ohio (CBS) are now off of DirecTV and AT&T U-verse. In a statement, Dispatch said that it “has completed numerous retransmission agreements in the past 12 months at fair market rates without any service interruption. Unfortunately, after offering an extension last Friday to hopefully reach a fair market deal, the deadline to reach a fair agreement with DirecTV and AT&T U-verse has passed, resulting in the interruption of service .... We will continue to work towards a fair agreement with DirecTV and AT&T U-verse and hope to resolve this situation as soon as possible.”

Direct TV is maybe the only satcaster/cable company that has enjoyed sub growth over the past couple years. I guess they are feeling frisky and think they can lose local channels and continue that growth. That trend will change soon. Look for Dish to get plenty of New Business over the next few months.
