Same kind of thing going on with WREG Channel 3 CBS Memphis, Tennessee. Channel may get pulled from DirecTv Channel Lineup if an agreement is not reached by 9/1/2012.

WJW and WREG are both owned by Local TV. Could be that all Local TV's stations are in the same boat.

Local TV's stations from their website:
http://www.localtvllc.com/ourstations/

Edited to add: In a spot check of 5 or 6 of their stations' websites, all had a similar announcement.

I did with one for free back during the dispute with Tribune, when local KTLA 5 (CW outlet) was temporarily pulled.

Had to go through the Retention Dept. though.

They aren't allowed to do that.


At least, not if your locale is judged as capable of acceptable OTA reception that is.

I guess I will join DirecTV just in time to see two Denver Stations go; the FOX and CW affiliate.
