KTIV and DirecTV have reached agreement and carriage of the station has been restored.
“We were as surprised as everyone else our station was dropped by Direct TV. We thought we were in “good faith negotiations”. Distributors of broadcast stations, such as Direct TV, pay broadcasters for the right to carry our signals and resell our programming to their subscribers for profit.” “We very much regret our viewers get caught in the crossfire but as 60 year free over the air broadcasters, we must protect ourselves,” Jerry Watson, KTIV's Regional Vice President said.
We appreciate the patience of our viewers as we worked to finalize this deal.
