CBS Blacked Out for Millions with AT&T U-verse & DirecTV

cbs black outCBS and AT&T were not able to resolve a carriage dispute and so millions of AT&T U-verse TV, DirecTV and the streaming service DirecTV Now.

CBS-owned stations in 14 cities that may be affected include Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Boston, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa, Minneapolis, Miami, Pittsburgh, and Sacramento.

“Our goal is always to deliver the content our customers want at a value that also makes sense to them. We continue to fight hard for that here and appreciate our customers’ patience while we work this out with CBS,” said AT&T in a statement.

“AT&T, however, continues to propose unfair terms well below those agreed to by its competitors and may drop CBS unless we agree to those terms,” said CBS.

You can blame either party or both for the failed negotiations that resulted in a blackout. But regardless of who is at fault, there are millions of customers who rely on local programming from CBS. Here are some ways to get local CBS stations if you’re an AT&T U-verse, DirecTV, or DirecTV Now customer.
