Guess we won't be seeing those channels back anytime soon now:nono2:
Link to DIRECTV's press release about it, http://investor.directv.com/releaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=661302
Just stream the shows you want to watch. For me it's only 2 shows from WPIX. Not a big deal. I never understood why Directv and other providers have to pain for something that is already free. The local station get's it money from advertizing, and they should budget accordingly. I would so love a la cart programing. I think the value of sports would go way down. The only sports network I'm willing to pay for is YES, I have no need nor do I want to pay for any others, including ESPN.
Just so you know one thing tribune has always been compensated for their affiliate's by directv.
Whatever, it's a joke. I can't stand the white sox announcer Hawk Harrellson. I dont care about the Cubs either but their announcer isn't as annoying.
Thatg is untrue. The CW affiliated supers (KTLA, KWGN and WPIX) show CW programming. I watch their CW programming all the time on DISH. Why do yiou think they do not show the CW programming?
As a Sox fan, I find Hawk entertaining, but as an umpire, I find him to be a total idiot and quite annoying, and that outweighs anything else.
~Alan<~~~~~~~~~Counting down the moments til someone makes an "Occupy Tribune" joke...
The earlier poster asked about getting a San Diego CW affilaite. It would be illegal to do that. The superstations are a different story but that staion is not a superstation.
BTW if D* suddently decided to offer the CW supers tribune could always ask for syndex blackouts in any market with a Tribune owned CW affilaite.
I think this is one time that where to place the blame is pretty easy....Tribune management said "we want this much", DirecTV said "okay", then the bankruptcy dweebs said "nope, we take it back".........
An image of Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown enters my thoughts.
Not that simple. Don't believe a press release. What if Tribune didn't agree to separating WGN America?
Those are not superstations. The superstations were independent stations that were available nationally, like WOR, WGN, and WTNT. The distant networks that are provided to areas that do not have a local network affiliate do not count as superstations.
The superstations are limited in what they can provide nationally, which is why WGN and WGN America are separate entities and no longer have the same programing. WGN is not allowed to show CW programs outside of its own DMA.
Even some syndicated programs are a problem for the superstations now. If a local station has exclusive rights to a sydicated program in its DMA, then the superstations are not allowed to show that program in that DMA.
It is all about copyright laws, who owns the programming, and what the agreements are with the various local and national outlets.
What has Tribune said? They don't seem to be denying the hedge fund aspect of it. Yet.
My all time favorite comic strip--Peanuts.
I've lived North, South and West, Downtown in Chicagoland and have never got a decent CBS picture OTA
He is horrible... I even know Sox fans that can't stand him...
Here's another article (not from a tribune company)
I'm sure it's come up in this thread, but I like the map shown on Engadget (apparently from Tribune).
It's pretty cool...
