About a year ago the locals were uplinked for the Joplin, MO - Pittsburg, KS DMA. It was advertised all the locals would be there. Long story short the market only got HD (no sd - not a big deal) and a year later CBS and FOX have not come to terms with Directv. So we just have ABC, NBC, PBS, & CW from D.C. Many viewers have asked the local FOX and CBS (housed in the same building) stations and all they say is they have not came to terms with a deal and CANNOT talk about it. I would like to come to directv but I am not going without CBS and FOX even though football is almost over for the year. Do disputes with locals usually go on this long?
