I wonder if they could even do that. I would figure the contract would be done via the NFL, and the NFL doesn't want to lose viewers.

Good point. NFL could tighten the screws too if they thought a lot of their viewers wouldn't be able to see games. CBS is a much more important partner for them than DTV.

Yep. Sunday Ticket is a deal between the NFL and DTV.

Re: DirecTV -- News and Updates

I was hoping when I opened this thread for the CBS dispute to end


Missed the Colbert shows with Jake Gyllenhaal and I think the Code finale aired during that time

If it did not end this week it would have been 3 weeks.

They should let everyone have the CBS LA and NY Feeds for free to make up for this.

I think KRON Is part of Nexstar but since they lost their NBC affiliate in the early 2000's and that is a channel you won't miss.

It looks like Directv is not going to put up the shows and episodes that aired during the dispute on demand
