Let me ask you this, how do you know they didn't cave?
Still on here in St Louis,MO at 12:39am Central Time.
Still on at 1:41am they are still scrolling that it will be removed at midnight lol
I have no idea if either side did or did not cave. However, I am also not the one claiming to know that. You are. If you have some information about the deal or how the final agreement was reached...I'm all ears. It would be very interesting to hear about the exact terms of the initial offers and then what was finally agreed upon.
Guess they agreed to a contract or something as its 4:56am and still get KSDK in St Louis,MO
Didn't Directv do just that during their negotiations with Hearst-Argyle Broadcasting a few months ago. I seem to remember they added a channel from Pennsylvania to the Orlando market to compensate for loosing access to the NBC affiliate WESH.
No, local cable outlet Brighthouse did that in Orlando.
According to my Local Affiliate KSDK who is owned by Gannett Broadcasting, there has been no news about the negotiations.
Looks like the sky didn't fall after all...
DirecTV has clearly stated they don't want to burden people who have no interest in a particular channel (notably expensive "sports" channels) to have to pay for them.
This was prior to the lakers, so in my eyes, they caved. No idea why you're trying to convince me otherwise. I'm sure anyone who has followed DirecTV and their statements over the past year in regards to various negotiations will agree with me.
I'm sorry it bothers you so much, but it is what it is.
I also still have my local Gannett station as of this morning.
I'll feel better when a deal is announced. As of now, it appears a deal isn't done yet, but the fact that the channels are still up does suggest to me that progress was made and a deal is close.
You are assuming that one side caved based upon absolutely nothing.
The DirecTV page is down on News10.net, and redirects to the main page.
And that's the entire release.
same old anti dish antics
Yet another successful deal completed by DirecTV.
I'm not assuming anything; I'm forming my own conclusion and it's not based on "nothing," it's in the statement you quoted from me.
Your circular arguments are just strange.
This was just posted to the Directv Twitter account:
I wonder how long until we have to go through this again.
+2. Case closed. Over and out.
I'm happy it's done. But I don't consider it successful. Successful to me in this medium is deals getting done without one side or the other running crawls over shows, creating web sites, public bickering, etc. I mean its done and I'm glad we didn't lose any channels, it just doesn't say success to me.
