    Wonder who blinked? Directv getting angry calls about not seeing the playoff game, or Cordillera counting up the reduced revenue from local advertisers who were missing all the Directv eyeballs.

    We'll never know, but it is interesting agreement was reached during the game.

    Same announcement on Lexington KY's Cordillera's station. Already back on on Directv. Hope common sense and reality overcame greed.

    Count me in as pleasantly surprised. It tells me that both sides were serious since they were negotiating over the weekend.


    KOAA5 and DirecTV reach an agreement; Signal restored

    Not really sure what I would see, but just checked the direct promise.com website to see what, if anything, might be there about the reaching of an agreement with our local Cordillera station. After providing my local zip code and having it identified correctly as my market, their summary was somewhat underwhelming: "There are currently no updates for your area. " Sorry I wasted my time!

    I think the station finally accepted dtvs offer. I suggest this because it was during the game and not before. I think the stations figured that DIRECTV would blink and never let its customers miss playoff games. I think DIRECTV has no problem with that in this situation and the station finally figured that out.

    I turned on my local NBC outlet last night and low and behold it was on the air. Apparently, the dustup has been settled.
