Maybe they are holding out to finish contract terms for DirecTV to carry the SupperStation package like Dish Network has today.

KTLA (Los Angeles), WPIX (New York), KWGN (Denver), WSBK (Boston) and WWOR (New York)

Oh wait, just dreaming in HD again, it will never happen.


Why? What would anyone gain by all those being carried nationally, other than local news from other markets, to which I say, there's the Internet and does anyone really care about that?

Looks like they will come down at 12am pdt according to the directv twitter feed, but the word is they will come down because no agreement has occurred tonight.

Just stated on the news...

As of 10:00 p.m. CDT, WGN News Anchorman Bob Jordan said:

They're not running scrawls; rather, they have actual information commercials announcing what is happening.


Thank you for the clarification. Hope this doesn't last long.
My comments and opinions are my own and not necessarily those of DirecTV.

All of their programing on wgn america is available elsewhere except for a few games that are not televised in the other teams markets. Only those in those markets would be without those games because the wgn feed is used in mlb.tv.


Wgn America dose not have any of Chicago's local team games last time I looked. That stopped a while ago. in fact, didn't that stop when they split wgn into wgn and wgn america? Did they start showing games again on that channel?

I am lucky, I can get ktla via ota, so I don't really care to much. Sucks for others though that can't get them via ota.

They show all of wgn's Cubs and White Sox games. They also show most of their Bulls games as well. Before the lockout, they were scheduled to air every wgn bulls game this season. Blackhawks are the only team not on WGN America. The only thing I have any interest on the station in is the sports otherwise wouldn't be bothered at all seeing it go. I won't lose any games though due to the out of market packages and their online counter parts.

Really? I'll have to look and see, but last time I checked, I'll be it a few years ago, you cold not get those teams here in la on wgn. Course if the station goes dark, I won't be able to see for myself anyway.

Plus, that screws with extra innings and league pass, is this really doesn't make any sense these days.

about 120 games. WGN games in nhl center ice and nba league pass are provided by the league. mlb.tv carries the wgn feed for sox and cubs games as well. nba league pass broadband uses the hd feed for a game unless it isn't televised in hd. WGN9 blackhawk games are available as part of nhl gamecenter live.

Only SLIGHTLY on topic, but I wonder when this will end. (It looks like the Tribune stations are not the only ones going black tonight).

I also wonder why this one was so quiet...

http://directvpromis...ing-negotiation

DIRECTV is in negotiations with Pappas Telecasting about how much of your bill is fair to pay for their programming.

DIRECTV is working to keep providing Pappas Telecasting’s local news and network programs. However, Pappas has informed us that on March 31, they will disconnect their DIRECTV viewers. We have no problem compensating Pappas fairly, and absolutely no intention of denying anyone access to these stations unless Pappas demands it.

Our negotiations with Pappas Telecasting cover the following channels:

KFXL (FOX) Lincoln, NE Ch.17
KHGI (ABC) Lincoln, NE Ch.13
KAZO (AZA/Azteca) Omaha, NE Ch.57
KCWI (CW) Des Moines, IA Ch.23
KSWT (CBS) Yuma, AZ Ch.13

I have hr34 but with am21. Not am21n. Would that make a difference?

I don't have one, but my understanding is that to get the HR34 to scan for channels you need the AM21N

WGN reported midnight CDT.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.
