    Fox doesn't influence editorial control over their O&O stations. For that matter I don't see any sign of political leaning on FS1 - I haven't seen them make any statements for or against stuff like kneeling. It seems they limit it to Fox News - and while obviously Murdoch is a pretty hard right guy, I think this was purely a financial calculation. Give people a conservative biased news source and attack all other media as liberal biased and you can get all the conservatives to watch your one channel. I think he would have done the same even if he was personally a liberal, because he goes where the money is.

    The only local stations that are under political influence are Sinclair's stations. They give them "must run" segments with a strong political slant, but they can't own all the stations in the market so if you don't like it you can just choose another station to watch for your local news.

    I was making more of a funny observation on the editorial control of the local Fox station's news. I don't watch anything on FS1 beyond soccer so I can't comment on their talking head shows.

    I loved John Oliver's segments he did on Sinclair.... so freaking frightening as well.

    Looks like I will be able to watch tonight's MLB ASG via mlb.tv using mu DirecTV log in credentials. =]


    Hopefully this Nextstar dispute gets fixed soon


    Update mlb.tv and fox sports app both working
    Mlb.tv is faster and my TV had a build in app so great PQ!


    So far thanks to DirecTV barely noticing the blackout

    You are talking local news? The same here. They don’t have parallel political views or even chose sides. The National news on each Network does lean. FS1 was never political. It’s a regional sports channel. Look at the MLB All Star Game last night. FOX did a great job. No politics. National news, totally different.

    Sports, but not regional. FS1 and FS2 are Fox's version of ESPN 1 and 2.

    There is no way to know that. It will be over when they come to an agreement, and negotiations are not public (despite the PR from both sides we are seeing now).

    Most of these disputes last only days or a week or two. Some, however, have dragged on for months.

    Random thought . A lot of media and the banners on the tv stations point the finger at att / DirecTV... how come no media or banner post the HQ number of nexstar and has folks calling them to offer a " fair " deal ?


    Just trying to look at both sides of the coin...

    Scranton, PA locals here, right now 2 are in dispute NBC 28 and CW 38, CW has been off for a while, at this point it doesn’t seem like it will ever come back. I have a Genie 2 and I really need an update on the software to make LCC work.

    I am surprise you don't have the latest software upgrade. It has been available for over four months. I don't have the procedure on doing a hard upgrade. Maybe someone else can help?

    I think by 'Genie 2' he means he has an HS17. The LCC is not supported with the current software on that server.
