Did Directv And Cbs Come To An Agreement

„We understand how our station may look like an unfair increase in our fares on DIRECTV and AT-T-Verse customers, but that`s just not the case,” the channel said. „Our prices are set by the market. WTHR has successfully negotiated agreements with all other suppliers in our region. In fact, in recent years, we have entered into hundreds of agreements with cable and satellite companies across the country. CBS has fair and timely agreements with hundreds of other cable, satellite, telecommunications and Internet providers to transport our major favorite fan programs. However, AT-T continues to propose unfair clauses well below the terms agreed by its competitors and may drop CBS unless we agree to these conditions. „This value is reflected in the hundreds of agreements we have negotiated in recent years with federal cable, satellite, telecommunications and streaming providers,” he said in the statement. „The differentiated and non-replaceable programming we offer, including local live news, local and national live sports, and popular first-class network content, is an important reason why consumers continue to subscribe (on pay TV),” the statement said. „This value is reflected in the hundreds of agreements we have negotiated in recent years with cable, satellite, telecommunications and streaming providers nationwide.” „In the midst of a prolonged pandemic, TEGNA is calling for the largest interest rate hike we have ever seen and deliberately overshadowing its most loyal viewers,” the company said in a statement in the United States today. „We ask TEGNA to immediately return its local stations as we reach a new agreement and commit to payING TEGNA retroactively, regardless of the higher rates to which we finally agree. We share the frustration of our customers, we appreciate their patience and we intend to do everything we can to resolve this issue soon. The communications company and the channel failed to reach a new agreement on Tuesday, resulting in the loss of more than 60 channels on DirecTV, AT-T-verse and the TELEVISION broadcast service AT-T.
„Unfortunately, DirecTV`s verses at TT have not reached an agreement with Tegna to keep our channels in the air” Tegna said in a statement posted on Twitter. The statement also tells customers to see its stations on other local providers or streaming services, as well as for free over-the-air. I`m known as a „loyal” customer to be with Directv for over 10 years, but I won`t be anymore when they remove the channels I watch. Please come to an agreement to keep what we have and not put customers in the middle. These days, there are other places to go and I will quickly approach the deadline for a transportation agreement between CBS Corporation and AT-T Cable and Satellite Services (including DirecTV and AT-T-verse) and I am not yet reaching an agreement. Companies have until July 19 to reach an agreement, but CBS` comments don`t really give the impression that the various parties are close to an agreement. CBS said this in a statement (via Variety): Both parties were unable to reach an agreement before December 1, 7 p.m. deadline AT-T and CBS Corp. have secured a multi-year agreement to bring their own local CBS stations and national programming to AT-T video platforms for subscribers in Dallas-Fort Worth and across the country according to a press release on Thursday.
