I pay Directv almost $2,000 a year which includes $10 per month for local channels in the Boston area. Last summer a dispute over how much Directv was willing to pay for them cost two weeks of Olympic coverage and now WCVB in Boston (#1 station by all ratings) has been off a week, with no resolution in sight.
So during tomorrow's big snow storm I will have to trek out to a local bar or something to see the first NFL playoff game.
Directv says the local stations are charging them for what they offer free over the air (antenna) but these local stations know that Directv is charging its customers for the signal, so they want their cut. And their website weakly argues that at least customers won't miss the national collegiate football championship game which is on another network, but like I said, $2,000 a year and I have been a customer since 1995....not much longer if this continues!!
