I'm pretty sure they can't do that (drop local channels to force people to pay for content).

What makes you say it has been 'lost'?

Plus the Saints have played their only game on CBS already (Texans on 9/25) . Everything else is either on FOX, NBC or ESPN.

CBS entirely?




edit - it's actually the other way around, the tv channel charges DTV to "retransmit".

Link?

I just did a search for a story on this (I figured it would be pretty big if Direct TV dropped CBS), and found nothing.

Ah, I found it.

This probably isn't going to happen. It's just posturing. There's too many stations and networks involved.

Quote:
DirecTV (Nasdaq: DTV) subscribers in 11 states could lose the signals from stations carrying programming from ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC on Nov. 1 unless the satellite TV provider strikes a retransmission-consent deal with station group owner Belo Television Group.

Belo, which operates 16 stations in Texas, Arizona, Washington, Arizona Kentucky, Oregon, Idaho, Missouri, Louisiana, North Carolina and Virginia, wants DirecTV to pay an increase in retransmission consent fees, and has been warning viewers that they could lose their favorite shows if they are DirecTV subscribers. It's possible that Belo could pull its signal if DirecTV doesn't agree to its terms, but losing the DirecTV subscriber base would take a toll on ratings for Belo stations and sap ad revenue from the stations.

Pretty sure that this is (inexplicably) no longer an option.

when i read story other day is was local CBS (i'm in IL). Looks like from the OP it's local there too. I haven't read anything saying entire CBS so I can't answer that. Local CBS asked everybody to contact directv and tell them we want CBS and that they were still negotiating (sp?) to stay on directv.

EDIT: from superchuck500 post, looks like Missouri instead of IL, but I could throw a rock and hit Missouri

It's probably the same as what I went through. The carrier of the local CBS channel probably wanted a ridiculous rate hike and DTV wouldn't pay it. That happened in Northwest Fl recently- same company owned the local Fox and CBS rights- Mediacom cable and the carrier couldn't come to an agreement. That's the one thing that finally forced me to get Direct TV, and I'm kicking myself for not doing it earlier- picture quality in HD (I had cable HD) is heads and tails above cable.
