This is not always the case. I think the networks that offer their channels to out of market DMA's as significantly viewed still want money for their channels. Maybe its not profitable in all areas. The biggest reason we probably got a few here was that at the time we did not have a CBS and this was one way to get one that was in state even at a cheaper rate. That being said, we were getting our DMA's ABC so I am not sure why they gave us that one. I imagine that some local stations add something into the new contracts but do not take some rep at DirecTV's 800 number at their word. There is no way they know the complexities of these kinds of issues. I imagine it is true that DirecTV does not want to offer all significantly viewed stations to all areas but that does not mean that it cant be done.
