Nexstar Agreement With Directv
Dozens of Texas television channels owned by Nexstar and Tegna could be inaccessible to satellite TV customers if owners fail to reach an agreement with TV providers on what companies want to ask for for the broadcasting of the channels. DODGE COUNTY, Wis. (WFRV) – The installation of a new camera system in Swan Park has identified two youths in a recent vandalism incident in Dodge County. Irving-based Nexstar is also negotiating with Dish Network what the satellite company must pay for its local channels. “Unfortunately, DIRECTV and AT-T-Verse have not agreed with Tegna to keep our stations available for their services. Our company has successfully negotiated multi-year contracts with hundreds of cable and satellite providers across the country without disrupting service,” Tegna spokeswoman Anne Bentley said in a statement, noting that the company`s channels are available from other streaming service providers. “Our customers want more choice and value, and we are pleased to provide this with this new agreement with Nexstar and its many local broadcasters,” Rob Thun, senior vice president of content and programming at AT-T Communications, said in the statement. AT T and Nexstar regret the inconvenience caused to customers, viewers and advertisers, and we thank them for their patience, as the new agreement has been reached. Nexstar bought Tribune Media Co. and its channels for $4.1 billion in 2019 and continued to expand its reach. Nexstar recently signed a contract with YouTube TV to rebroadcast WGN America and its night newscast NewsNation and provide it with an additional 3 million subscribers.
In previous disputes over transportation costs, some operators investigated threats, while others continued to speak beyond the deadline. A new dispute has erupted between DirecTV and Nexstar, with the radio group claiming that more than 120 channels in 97 U.S. markets were affected by the outage as of midnight on July 4.
